Our online Diploma in TESOL is an advanced level training course that has been specifically designed to give graduates a real advantage over the competition when applying for any level of job within the TEFL world. The course can be taken by anyone regardless of their background as it starts off with our 120-hour TEFL course that will give you all the basic knowledge you need before you move on to the advanced level diploma section.
The research based design of the Diploma in TESOL course requires use of the internet and other resources to explore and build your own understanding of a wide variety of interesting topics. The modules that make up the course cover many relevant subjects including the historical development of English language teaching, different approaches to course syllabus design, classroom materials design, student assessment strategies, and classroom management.
This course comes with the expert guidance and support of an online tutor and it can also be taken as part of a multi-course package. If you are looking for a full range of qualifications to give you the widest choice of teaching jobs, you might want to take a look at our 550-hour Expert Package. This great value course package includes our 120-hour TEFL course, the 50-hour course in teaching business English (CTBE), the 50-hour course in teaching English to young learners (CTEYL), the 50-hour course in teaching English online (CTEO), the 250-hour Diploma in TESOL, and an optional teaching practice component.
With this package you can choose to receive five individual certificates (six if you complete the teaching practice) or a 550-hour certificate that covers all the components.
Optional Teaching Practice
This course comes with the option of free additional teaching practice that can be completed without having to attend one of our training centers. This will allow you to gain further teaching knowledge and some invaluable time in the classroom before you head off to start your first real-life teaching position. There are two different options for how the lessons are undertaken and verified:
Option 1: You can find a school or language center of your choice (either in-class or online) and teach your lessons there. The school will sign off that you have completed these lessons and your documents will be sent to ITTT for verification.
Option 2: You can find your own student/s and teach the lessons independently at a location of your choice, either face-to-face or remotely. You will need to video one of these sessions (1 hour) and send it to ITTT with your other documentation for verification.
With Tutor Support + FREE COURSE
By adding the Diploma course to your CV/resume you will have a distinct advantage over the competition when applying for jobs anywhere in the world. The course also includes the initial 120-hour TEFL course which means it is open to anyone, even those without any training or experience.
