Experience has told us repeatedly that employers look more favourably upon those candidates whose TEFL qualification includes a teaching practice component.

Thus, the Teaching Practice Certificate has been designed as a supplement to one or more of Anglo Centres TEFL's online TEFL courses.

This course can also be taken as a free-standing Teaching Practice (TP) certificate is aimed at those wanting some hands-on teaching practice in preparation for a teaching job and those practising teachers who would like to learn about newer techniques and approaches in English Language Teaching.

Course Qualifications 

Successful candidates will be awarded the CERTIFICATE OF TEACHING PRACTICE IN TEFL-TESOL.

An added benefit of completing a TP Certificate, other than the invaluable hands-on experience that you will receive, is that the online course you completed is automatically upgraded to an Advanced Certificate. Thus:

  • Online TEFL Certificate +
    TP Certificate = Advanced Certificate in TEFL

  • Online First Certificate for Teachers of Business English +
    TP Certificate = Advanced Certificate in Teaching English for Business

  • Online Young Learners Certificate +
    TP Certificate = Advanced Certificate in Teaching English to Young Learners

How the course works

Course delivery is very simple:

You are assigned a personal tutor who will assign you TP classes and lessons to plan for.

You will teach your lessons at one of Anglo Centres TEFL's schools. You can do your lesson planning at home and then run your plan by your tutor via e-mail or do it in person, whatever suits you best.

Depending on your goals and/or type of course you have completed (or are completing) you will teach Adults, Young Learners, Business English students or a combination of these. This will be decided between you and your tutor.

Course Aims

The overall aim of the Teaching Practice Certificate is to give trainee teachers the opportunity to put the theories and methodologies they have covered and explored on their online courses into practice with real learners of English.

This course is a further opportunity to design and implement activities and lessons and then reflect on their effectiveness in the classroom.

The ultimate goal is for candidates to learn from practice and reflection and take steps towards becoming more effective TEFL-TESOL practitioners.
