20 hour Teaching Practice
Course Fees - £125.00
This practical teaching experience is designed for Christian TEFL online trainees who would like official recognition of their in-class voluntary teaching. A 20 hour Teaching Practice can consist of any in-class help you give; from assisting a lead teacher to observing classes, as long as you lead a class for at least 6 hours.
Ideal if you:
- want an online TEFL plus flexible teaching practice
- require class exposure but not an expensive taught programme
- you are a Christian TEFL trainee requiring official recognition for your teaching
- are interested in the EPIK scheme Korea where 20 hours in-class is now essential
Why this course?
This is a unique programme giving you maximum flexibility on where and when you undertake TP. Plus you can expect:
- support in your teaching - with access to a personal tutor
- a robust programme requiring at least 6 hours of you leading a class

Your TP programme should consist of a minimum 20 hours class time.
Upon enrolment, you will log in to your student area, meet your personal tutor and view the forms ready for download:
Time log form – completed by you and signed by the sponsoring institution confirming your completion of 20 hours in-class time. 6 hours must be you leading a class teaching English. The remaining hours can consist of being a class assistant or observing a class (minimum of 2 students per class). Please note, home tutoring 1-1 cannot be included in this class since it is vital for the integrity of the programme that your TP experience is verifiable by a 3rd party.
Self-evaluation form - submit a guided reflection on a lesson you have delivered. You will be assigned a Christian TEFL personal tutor for advice, guidance and who will also mark your self-evaluation.
Where can I get teaching practice?
It is important that your teaching practice is classroom based and can be verified by a 3rd party ‘host’ of some description for the validity of your certificate. This is why tutoring 1-1 privately/online does not count towards TP under this scheme.
There is a huge demand to learn English and in most locations worldwide there are numerous opportunities to teach English in the paid or voluntary sector.
The documentation we need your sponsoring organisation to provide for us is not onerous! Essentially, they will just need to allow you to help out (and allow you to lead a class for 6 hours of TP) and sign to verify your participation.
Organisations offering TP options:
- Faith-based organisations, churches and ‘international cafes’
- Local government - often organises or knows of volunteer schemes teaching English
- universities and colleges with or without specific ESL departments
- Community centres based around cultural groups (find these through the internet on local search engines)
- Language schools
This is an excellent addition to your accredited Christian TEFL online course. We will add comments as the come in!
