Experience has told us repeatedly that employers look more favourably upon those candidates whose TEFL / TESOL qualification includes a teaching practice component.
The Teaching Practice Certificate is offered to those who are completing or have completed an online TEFL / TESOL certificate either with Anglo Centres TEFL or another TEFL provider or to those who are already in possession of an initial English Language Teaching qualification.
This course can also be taken as a free-standing Teaching Practice (TP) certificate and 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.
Successful candidates will be awarded the CERTIFICATE OF TEACHING PRACTICE IN TEFL / TESOL. You decide whether your certificate says TEFL or TESOL.
Course delivery is very simple:
You are assigned a personal tutor who will assign you Teaching Practice 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.
The Teaching Practice Certificate in TEFL / TESOL involves:
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.
At the end of each lesson you teach you will receive formative assessment which takes account of your teaching performance, lesson planning and reflections after your lesson.
After each lesson your tutor will give you detailed feedback on your strengths and weaknesses and specific advice so you can maintain and/or improve your grades.
Certificates bear one of the following:
Pass with Distinction
Pass with Merit
Final grades are based on where you are at the end of your training and are given as either A+, A, B+, B or C.
It usually takes between 10 and 14 days to complete the Teaching Practice Certificate. This is negotiated between you and your tutor so as to accommodate your needs and availability.
