Which TEFL course is best for teaching English online?
Due to the huge international demand for English teachers both online and in the classroom, ITTT has designed various courses that are aimed at anyone who wants to teach English in either of these environments. No previous experience or training in teaching English is required to complete these courses and once completed you will be qualified to apply for jobs with a wide range of employers.
50-hr Course in Teaching English Online (CTEO)
This course is especially designed to build on the knowledge learned during a standard TEFL course and to prepare you for teaching English in an online environment. Upon successful completion of the course you will be given access to a unique graduate network, connecting you to ITTT CTEO alumni currently employed by many of the major employers in online teaching.
CTEO Course Units
- Unit 1: Course Introduction
- Unit 2: Equipment
- Unit 3: Working Options
- Unit 4: Teachers and Learners
- Unit 5: Social Media
- Unit 6: The Online Teaching World
The course consists of six individual units, which are each followed by an automated online assessment to check your understanding of the material covered. When you have successfully completed all six units by scoring 75% or more on average, you will then move on to a final summative task. Once all six tests and the final task have been completed you will be awarded your course certificate. You will be given up to six months to complete all parts of the course, and within this time frame you can work at whatever pace you feel comfortable with.
