CertTESOL (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)

The Trinity Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CertTESOL) is a TESOL or TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate designed for people with little or no experience of teaching English, and for those with experience who require an internationally recognised initial teacher education qualification.Preparing for the Trinity CertTESOL English language teaching certificate equips trainees with the basic skills and knowledge needed to take up their first post as an ESOL teacher. It gives an introduction to the theory and practice of English teaching and an insight into the challenges facing the learner and the role of the teacher.The CertTESOL is rated at Level 5 on Ofqual’s Regulated Qualifications Framework, a comparable level to the second year of an undergraduate degree, and comprises a minimum of 130 hours, with an expected minimum of 70 hours further study required (Total Qualification Time: 200 hours).

At Britishey Training Centre, we provide different modes for students to take the CertTESOL course:

  • Full-time course: This intensive course runs for four weeks, typically from Monday to Friday.
  • Part-time course: Designed for students who cannot commit to a full-time schedule, our part-time CertTESOL course is spread over a period of 10 to 12 weeks with classes conducted on evenings and weekends.
  • Fully-online course: This flexible mode provides candidates with the convenience of online learning. Candidates receive their input sessions on Google Meet and do their teaching practices there as well.

The CertTESOL is suitable for aspiring teachers from any background who are attracted to the English language teaching profession. Choosing a career in TESOL offers teachers opportunities to work at home and internationally and to experience life in different cultures. The Trinity CertTESOL is accepted by the British Council and other international teaching organisations around the world as an initial English language teaching certificate.
