    • Teaching Pronunciation
    • Teaching Grammar
    • The Individual Learner
    • Teaching Young Learners
    • Business English

    • Tracking Student Progress – Testing and Assessments
    • ESL and Literacy
    • Job hunting and Continuous Professional Development
  • Course Tutors

    The quality of teaching and support you get is vital to the success of your teaching practice experience.

    Every single one of the tutor staff preparing student EFL teachers was a highly experienced ex-senior teacher in UK state education.

    In addition, all of the tutors have an MA in Education from a UK University AND a Post Grad qualification in teaching English or at least 5 years EFL teaching experience.

    We know more than most what the challenges are for newly qualified teachers who are entering the profession of EFL teaching.

  • Entry Critera

    All the qualifications have been designed to be accessible without artificial barriers that restrict access and progression but before contacting applying to join this programme, please check you meet the following general criteria:

    • Are you 18 or over?
    • Have you achieved a level of education normally required for entry into higher education?
    • Is your English good enough to teach at a range of levels? (Minimum CEFR Level B2)

    In the case of non Native English Speakers:

    Applicants whose first language is not English, ideally, need to evidence IELTS level 6.0 (or a B2) or above. If you don't have a certificate in English at IELTS 6.0 / B2 or better, please contact us and we'll conduct a quick check to ensure your understanding of English is high enough to complete the programme.

  • Attendance

    The programme is taught live but online so attendance at group or one to one sessions is necessary - with as close to 100% attendance as is possible.

    Typical times: Monday - Friday from 10.00 - 14.00 (or to suit individual attendance needs)

    With 120 hours guided learning hours in the course, leaners attend 4 hours online each day other 4 weeks, and in addition complete 3 assignments plus an optional research assignment for additional credit for a 'Distinction'.
