Your day will typically begin with input sessions in the morning and early afternoon, followed by teaching practice sessions and observations. During these practice sessions you will learn from your peers. Our practice sessions are based on the workshop model of learning where, after the session, the students offer each other constructive criticism and reflections on what they learned.
For your Teaching Practice you will be teaching real adult learners of General and Business English and also Young Learners. This makes our courses unique in the market. This experience will enable you to teach English effectively in a range of different learning contexts making you a very attractive candidate for a variety of teaching positions.
Teaching practice involves a minimum of six hours' observed teaching and lesson planning. There are guided purposeful observations of qualified and experienced tutors which amount to a minimum of eight hours, four of which should be live lessons and then others may be videoed lessons or lessons in which the trainees are foreign language learners.
Those course participants interested in obtaining an Endorsement in Teaching English for Business and English to Young Learners will need to complete two extra modules of work.

This part of the course is often described as being “an eye-opener” that gives you first-hand understanding of learner needs and allows you to understand how your TEFL-TESOL students will feel.
Your progress will be continually evaluated. There are no exams. As you continue to improve in your teaching abilities your grade will continue to evolve to reflect your professional growth.
