Train The Teacher has developed the unique Trinity College London Blended CertTESOL course in Hong Kong for Teaching Adults & Young Learners, which combines online tutorials together with an intensive face-to-face component in the latter part of the course (approximately 230 hours). In addition, there is a distance pre-course task of 25 hours to bring all trainees up to a similar foundation level of knowledge in grammar, phonology and teaching methodology, regardless of background and amount of previous teaching experience.
While course tutors will be available for guidance during the course, trainees will be required to demonstrate diligence and good organizational skills. There will be a considerable workload with lesson planning, the completion of weekly tasks and course assignments and personal study, so course participants should be prepared to take an independent and pro-active approach in their learning journey.
The CertTESOL course in Hong Kong caters for experienced teachers as well as those who are new to teaching.
The Trinity CertTESOL is an internationally recognized qualification for teachers of English all over the world. It is accredited at Level 5 on the National Qualifications Framework by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority in the UK (the same as CELTA).
It is registered with the Hong Kong Council for Academic Accreditation as a course leading to a Non-local Higher Qualification and recognised by the British Council and language centres in HK and internationally.
