Diploma in TESOL Course Aims

The diploma course covers a wide range of topics from the design of teaching materials to educational theories, all of which should provide you with a greater understanding of your role as an English language teacher.

Diploma in TESOL Course Assessment

With this course you will complete an online multiple choice test after each course module. Once you have completed each test your answers will be automatically marked and the results presented in a bar graph so you can follow your progress. Once you have completed all eleven modules you will need to submit your research-based thesis as laid out in the summative task.

Once you have completed all the modules and the research project, you will receive your online Diploma in TESOL Certificate.

Optional Teaching Practice

This course comes with the option of additional teaching practice that can be completed without having to attend one of our training centers. This will allow you to gain further teaching knowledge and some invaluable time in the classroom before you head off to start your first real-life teaching position. There are two different options for how the lessons are undertaken and verified:

Option 1: You can 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.

Option 2: You can find your own student/s and teach the lessons independently at a location of your choice, either face-to-face or remotely. You will need to video one of these sessions (1 hour) and send it to ITTT with your other documentation for verification.
