Who is the course for?

The Trinity CertTESOL course at Truro & Penwith College is designed for those who have little or no experience of teaching English in the ESOL / EFL classroom looking for initial training as teachers of ESOL / EFL. The course will provide the basic skills and knowledge needed to take up posts as ESOL /EFL teachers in a variety of settings in the UK and around the world.

Benefits of Attending

£1400

Programme Content

  • Teaching approaches and methods
  • Classroom management and lesson planning
  • Language awareness – grammar, vocabulary & structure
  • Pronunciation & phonology
  • Teaching practice with EFL / ESOL students
  • 4 hours of Japanese classes – to experience being a language learner

What is involved?

The Trinity CertTESOL includes 120 hours of taught sessions and 6 hours of observed teaching practice with ESOL / EFL students. This is what distinguishes the Trinity CertTESOL course (and the Cambridge CELTA) from other TEFL courses. The course runs on Fridays and then students can choose either Tuesday or Thursday to complete their teaching practice.

Although this is a part-time course, there is lots of work to do outside the classroom in order for trainees to prepare their lessons and complete their assignments. We strongly advise against trainees completing the course while working full time. All applicants must complete an application form and attend an interview in order to be offered a place on the course.

What next?

Once students have gained the Trinity CertTESOL qualification, they are qualified to work in English language schools anywhere in the world. This qualification is not suitable for those looking to work in the state teaching sector. After two years teaching experience, TESOL graduates may wish to complete the Diploma in TESOL or a postgraduate TESOL qualification which are important in order to move into teaching management.
