COVID19 and TESOL Certification

With current restrictions due to COVID-19 and subsequent online learning acceleration, the Teach TESOL program provides educators and students alike the opportunity to engage with the process of leaning regardless of shifting circumstance.

Our 170-hour TESOL course provides Teach educators with a broad base of knowledge with which to meet the needs of young learners learning English alongside their mother tongue and differentiating for variations in developmental stages. Catering to young learners demands, skilful manipulation of materials and effective scaffolding of content is presented in order to optimise the students learning experience. Specifically, because the young learner English segment is projected to continue growing substantially as different countries integrate English language lessons into their curricula in the primary years, specialising in TEYL is a wise strategy for the Teach educator passionate about making a difference in children’s English language education.

OTTSA Accreditation Assessment Requirements

‘Teach’ OTTSA accredited TESOL courses include additional subjective assessment units in the form of a comprehensive summative test. This is taken in addition to the prescribed examination and includes the creation of an independent lesson plan and essay questions covering the four main component macro skills associated with TESOL.

Each OTTSA accredited course is ‘Trainer supported’ and individually marked, providing specific feedback to every candidate on their progress.

This 170-hour course is divided into three core units of 60 hours of TESOL methodology and 40 hours of grammar articulation focus, followed by 70 hours of core content in Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL). Course material and learning practice prepare candidates for both online and face to face lesson delivery.
