Join our International English TESOL Certification Program in June 2013!
International English TEFL TESOL Institute is holding our global TESOL Certification Program that will start on June 24th until July 5th, 2013.
Our International Cert. TESOL has been carefully designed to be beneficial for all teachers of English at any stage of their career.
For new teachers, it is the perfect way to prepare for your first teaching job. We welcome participants with little or no teaching experience to join the programme, where they will learn all of the necessary theory and methodology to be a classroom teacher as well as developing their own creativity, confidence and attitude along the way.
For experienced teachers, the programs provides great opportunities to share what you have already learned through prior training and experience as well as receiving further development, both through the course materials and through forum-style discussion with the other participants. The International Cert. TESOL is a dynamic programme and so is a great way to keep up to date with academic and practical developments in the the teaching world and maintain a high level of competency.
The training has also proven popular with teachers holding Academic degrees such as BA and MA in English as it adds a practical element to the formal learning that they have received previously.
As well as the personal development that you will get from the training in the shape of knowledge, skill and ideas, the International Cert. TESOL also offers great opportunities in your teaching career as it is a requirement for teaching English to speakers of other languages in most parts of the world.
The programme includes:
• 80 hours face-to-face training with peer-teaching.
This is the practical input portion of the programme. Participants are introduced to a variety of teaching methodologies and learn about learner psychology, language acquisition and other such theory. Participants are expected to contribute to discussions about these topics and there are plenty of opportunities to practise the methods in peer-teaching sessions. The face-to-face training is very active and is designed to prepare even new teachers for their first classroom experience.
• 40 hours independent study with appointed mentor.
After the training is finished, participants are expected to complete a number of independent learning tasks (mentored and assessed online or via email) to demonstrate the knowledge that they have acquired during the face-to-face sessions. There are various tasks include long and short answer questions, lesson planning exercises and language awareness units. Satisfactory completion of these tasks is part of the competency assessment and is necessary for qualification.
• 6 hours practical classroom assessment.
The International Cert. TESOL is a competency-based qualification, meaning that graduation is not automatic after the training is complete. Before we grant qualification, it is necessary to see that participants are competent and ready to go on and be effective teachers of English to speakers of other languages. Therefore, we require a minimum of 6 hours practical classroom application for assessment. This is usually recorded and submitted as video files.
• Internationally accredited TESOL qualification.
Once the above stages have all been deemed complete by our trainers/mentors and assessors, you will receive your internationally accredited Cert. TESOL, proof that you are a fully qualified and competent teacher as required by language institutions all around the world.
• Personalised reference letter for job applications.
Along with your certificate of qualification, you will receive detailed assessment reports and a letter from your personal trainer/mentor endorsing your status as a competent teacher of English to speakers of other languages.
• Training materials and textbook.
All course materials are included in the original registration fee.
