Why this course?
Our guided, interactive programme gives you the chance to practice the essential things you will need to do on your own as a teacher, such as create lesson plans and source materials. Many other online courses rely much more heavily on self assessment/multi choice – this one doesn’t. More personalised support means we can help you develop better teaching skills.
The course also includes at no extra cost:
Big Grammar eBook (worth £30)
Ready-to-Print TEFL instant Lessons (worth £25)
Teaching English in church guide (priced at £5)
Personal tutor for help, advice, marking and grading throughout the course (invaluable)
How the course works
As soon as you book your course, you'll be directed to log in to your personal student area where you can message your tutor, download your course and view latest TESOL jobs worldwide via our jobs feed.
After downloading your first module (there are 4 in total) you can work offline when you want to, which means this course is perfect if you are working in a remote location where internet access is variable. There are short tasks and in-depth activities throughout the course with exam questions at the end of each module.
When complete, simply upload your modules via your student area and get full feedback from your tutor.
Your final award is graded on the following scale: A, B or Pass and this is shown on your Christian TEFL Certificate.
Throughout the course you’ll be able to access live teaching segments, podcasts and links to some of the top EFL material on the web today to keep you interested & motivated. We've made this course as flexible and easy for you to access as possible.
The free grammar materials and lesson plans mean that you will have a fantastic resource for teaching when you set foot in the classroom.

Read some comments from students who have completed this course with our sister organisation, Global English:
Now that I've had some time to go through your comments and suggestions on my 4th Module, I'd just like to say a big thank you for all of your help and support over the past few months. I'm delighted to have completed my course, and am looking forward to "pastures new" when I start teaching my first class next week.
I have to say that I've been very pleased with the quality of service and level of support that I have received from everyone at Global English, and that you (Martin) have been an exceptional tutor. I can't thank you enough for your prompt answers to my queries, helpful suggestions and comments, and also your book recommendations. You have helped me to grow as a teacher, and I have some useful teaching resources for future use.
I found the course content very relevant and practical. It enabled me to build up a portfolio of lesson plans and activities. I was very impressed with how quickly marked papers were sent back to me.
This has been an excellent and convenient way of getting my teaching qualifications while being able to continue my other work.
This course has been a great investment and my new Head wrote to congratulate me and has earmarked me for a pay rise in September. I loved the study booklets and the clear practical explanations and suggestions. I am due to teach at summer school again so there is a possibility of starting Level 5 at the end of August.
