Win a scholarship for a Trinity DipTESOL Course!

After the great success of our Trinity DipTESOL scholarship last year, we are very excited to announce another opportunity to win a scholarship! As well as transforming your teaching, this qualification helps you to move into other areas of ELT such as becoming a Director of Studies or teacher trainer, writing course books, and even opening your own school.

1st Prize: Full Scholarship (worth €2600)

2nd Prize: 50% Scholarship (worth €1300)

To participate:

We would like to raise awareness of the impact our profession has on the environment and how we can all contribute to a better future by reducing our climate/carbon/plastic footprints. This is why, as part of this competition, we would like to hear your ideas on how this can be done.

Step 1: Make a video (maximum 1 minute) answering the question: “How can we reduce our climate/carbon/plastic footprints across the ELT profession?” (with your phone, camera or any other device). You can talk about what schools, teachers, publishers and teacher training centres can do to address any of these issues, for example.

Step 2: Submit your video using the form below by Monday 15th July 2019. 

Step 3: “Like” our Facebook page, or Follow us on Twitter or join our LinkedIn group. We will announce the 10 finalists on these platforms on Monday 22nd July 2019.

Entries will be judged by our expert panel: Duncan Foord (Oxford TEFL Director), Christopher Graham (ELT Footprint) and Nicola Meldrum (Trinity DipTESOL Course Director) who will select our 10 favourite videos, taking into consideration:

  • How well the question was answered
  • Clarity of message
  • Ideas
  • Presentation of video

If you are one of our 10 lucky finalists, you will be asked to submit a final written task by Monday 29th July 2019.
