TEFL in Singapore | TEFL Singapore | ITTT

As one of the most cosmopolitan countries in the world, Singapore is a fascinating place to live and work. Located at the tip of the Malay Peninsula, the city-state once known as the “Jewel of the British Empire” is steeped in British colonial history evident in the city’s monuments and architecture. There are four official languages in Singapore: English, which is the language of government and instruction, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil. A major transport hub, Singapore is accessible via direct flights from hundreds of locations as well by ferry from a number of ports in the region. Despite being a well developed urban environment, Singapore has plenty of green spaces to enjoy. There are also a number of world-class attractions in the city including Universal Studios Singapore, Resorts World and one of the world’s largest indoor aquariums, the S.E.A. Aquarium.

Visitors to Singapore can experience the city’s most exciting attractions and areas by taking advantage of the city tours and tourist passes available. At the local parks you can make the most of the beautiful green spaces by renting bicycles and for those wishing to escape city life, you can head off the islands of Pulau Ubin and Kusu Island. Those looking for an exciting nightlife will be spoiled for choice in Singapore. Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, Arab Street and Sentosa Island offer plenty in the way of restaurants, bars and other entertainment.

    * Please note visa information is subject to change at any time. Please check with your local Singapore consulate or embassy for updated information and the latest requirements.

  • What is the course schedule?

    Expand

    On the first day of the course an orientation will be held. Orientation will be followed by the first class on Monday morning at 9:30 am. During the orientation, an in depth course schedule will be provided. A typical session will run between 9:30 and 4:30 pm Monday to Friday with morning and late afternoon breaks, and a lunch break also included. However, there will also be some evenings required for teaching practice.

    All teacher trainees are expected to attend all of the training sessions on the schedule unless a medical condition or emergency makes it impossible in which case medical treatment is required. It is extremely important for trainees to be present at every Teaching Practice (TP). These sessions are difficult to organize and rescheduling is difficult which may result in an additional fee for the trainee.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?

    Expand

    The teaching practice is conducted at the school and we have Japanese and Korean students. These students are usually non-native speaking expats living in Singapore who make the lessons engaging, enjoyable and consistently give constructive feedback. Most of the students have studied at our centre with trained and experienced EFL teachers. They are not required to come to the class so their presence is merely out of the desire to help the trainees to improve their teaching.

  • Who can attend the TEFL course? Do I need to be native English speaker?

    Expand

    You need to be at least 18 years old to enrol in our course. There is no maximum age, but do keep in mind that some institutions may not employ teachers beyond a certain age.

    While you don’t need to be a native speaker to attend, you do need to be fluent in English.

    We define fluency as having at least a C1 level on the CEFR scale of language proficiency.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Expand

    For most sessions at the school, there will not be a strict dress code requirement. However, the school is full of educators and professionals and we want to maintain a level of professionalism thus please dress appropriately and be mindful of others. The school is a place of work, and we would like to remind you to be respectful to those around you.

    There will be a dress requirement during the Teaching Practice (TP) sessions. During the Teaching Practice the trainees will be required to dress in business attire and follow some guidelines.

    Women:

    Shoulders must be covered. Low-cut necklines or short skirts will not be permitted. No low-cut necklines or very short skirts. Flip flops, bermuda’s, or sandals are also not permitted.

    Men:

    Slacks or khakis must be worn, jeans are not appropriate. Either short or long sleeved shirts are acceptable so long as there is a collar. A tie is not required but if you would like to, you may. Dress shoes or loafers are required. Tennis shoes, sandals, or bermuda’s, are not acceptable. Long hair should be tied back.

  • What should I bring for course studies?

    Expand

    A pen, a notebook for taking notes, and a three-ring binder to organize lesson plans are essential. Forms, and other information will be given and an organized binder would help all of this remain neat and tidy.

    A recording device, or cell phone to record, is not required but it is a good idea. In the past trainees at various locations have given feedback that it made the course easier. This helped in reviewing the course material, lectures, interviews, and student feedback. Although it is not a requirement we suggest doing so.

    Books are provided and available to be borrowed at the school, and in the study room. However, any material leaving the campus requires permission from the staff.

    All trainees are required to prepare their own materials for their Teaching Practice (TP). The training school maintains a supply of materials but the school is not responsible to provide materials. Materials such as poster board, markers, glue, paper, pens, and more for developing teaching material will have to be purchased by the trainees themselves.

    The photocopy machine at the school is available for all trainees to use without charge.

  • What documents do I need for finding employment after the course?

    Expand

    Your passport. However, if you are able to secure a job in Singapore or another country, you will need original copies of your birth certificate, college degree(s), and any other certificates or diplomas you feel may be relevant, along with relevant transcripts.
