This course is designed for the trainee with little or no experience of teaching English in the contemporary ESOL classroom, but with a high level of competence in spoken and written English. It will equip you with the most basic skills and knowledge needed to take up a post as a TESOL teacher and give you a firm foundation for self-evaluation and further professional development.
The Certificate is a minimum requirement for many jobs, and is recognised and regarded highly internationally. Our programme meets the requirements of The British Council Validation Advisory Committee under the English in Britain Accreditation Scheme and our Certificate is validated by Trinity College. We are the only school in Ireland approved by Trinity College London to offer this prestigious qualification course. Atlantic SEAL is also recognised by the the Irish Dept of Education & the CertTESOL also meets their requirements for candidates who wish to work in a recognised English school in Ireland. This is an initial qualification, although experienced teachers with no recognised qualifications may also find it a useful stepping stone in their careers and professional development.
