Participants and Teachers in TESOL Program
There is an overwhelming demand for TESOL graduates overseas. Graduates from the China ESL Certificate in TESOL are able to use this qualification to secure employment in a multitude of countries. Through our extensive experience and network of affiliations China ESL staff can offer advice and contact with organizations seeking teachers for long or short contracts.
The Certificate in TESOL does not require you to hold a bachelor’s degree and neither do you need a background in teaching. You do however need a good command of written and spoken English and good interpersonal skills and personal presentation. You also need EITHER a Senior High School Certificate or equivalent OR a Certificate III or equivalent qualification OR have at least 2 years work experience.
As a guide to what is to be expected during the course, applicants are required to complete a brief Pre-Application Task to be submitted with enrolment forms.
It is important to understand that the course is intensive and requires a strong commitment. It is a competency-based course and is assessed on the basis of attendance, participation in class discussion, peer presentations, the completion of additional readings out of class hours and timely submission of a series of subject specific assignments and/or related reflective essays.
The number of Classroom Training places for the Certificate in TESOL is strictly limited and an application to participate in the course does not guarantee acceptance.
Most TESOL students have no previous teaching experience, so this course takes a practical step-by-step approach that shows how to be a good teacher with a specific focus upon TESOL strategies. It provides a unique combination of classroom training, practical teaching, and online classes that minimises student’s time out of the workforce. In fact, the delivery of the Certificate in TESOL has been organised in a way that will enable students to secure positions teaching overseas after the completion of their two weeks of classroom training. Students will then have the option of completing the remainder of the qualification while they are working.
