Why Choose a TEFL/TESOL Course with Teaching practice?
Taking one of our courses with an additional Practicum (CTPR) option offers a number of advantages to graduates. These include a greater range of skills covered by your training and in some situations the advantage of having teaching practice experience, which some employers prefer.
Participants will teach real English Language Learners (ELLs) over a range of topics. There are a couple of options to how the lessons are undertaken and reported upon. You can either:
Find a school or language center of your choice (either in-class or online) and teach your lessons there. The school will sign off that you have completed these lessons and your documents will be sent to ITTT for verification, or you find your own ELL student/s and teach the lessons independently at a location of your choice, either face to face or remotely (via Skype, Zoom, etc.). You will video one of these sessions (1 hour) and send it to ITTT with your other documentation for verification.
