About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The Diploma in TESOL is intended as a higher qualification for those who are already teaching English to speakers of other languages. It will enable successful trainees to attain positions like Director of Studies, teacher trainers, senior teachers and other similar positions at English language schools and other tertiary linguistic institutions.
The course aims to provide a supportive environment for reflective professional development for experienced teachers of ESOL. The approach will be a balance of top-down and bottom-up to meet both the development needs of teachers and requirements for the examinations.
