During the course, our trainees take part in workshop-style input session with specialized tutors, such as in the areas of teaching young learners, teaching business English, teaching with technology, teaching phonology or teaching grammar. We provide all the support necessary during lesson planning and in preparation for assessments.

You will receive detailed feedback after your teaching practice in small groups of between 3 and 5 trainees and you are encouraged to get to know the students and have fun in your classrooms. Our English students are taught in our language school and are motivated to get to know their teachers and the different backgrounds they come from. We make sure that you gain experience teaching a variety of levels and even one-to-one classes.

Our trainee teachers come from a variety of backgrounds and nationalities. In your Trinity CertTESOL group, you could find that 20% are non-native English speakers along with a mixture of Americans, Canadians, British, French, German, Russian, Spanish or any other nationality. In our centre in Kerala, around 65% are Indian nationals.

Assessment is based on your projects, teaching journal, teaching practice and final Language Awareness exam. The last class you teach will be externally moderated by a Trinity examiner. On successful completion of this course, graduates receive the Trinity CertTESOL certificate from Trinity.

Accreditation by Trinity is important to us and to employers all over the world. Obtaining a certificate from Trinity means that the quality of the training you have received meets the highest of standards – wherever in the world you do your course. As a result, over the years, the Trinity stamp of approval has come to be trusted by TEFL employers everywhere.
