For January 2019 we are giving our Grammar for Teachers course free when you enrol on this 120 hour Certificate course.

The Norwood English Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language is a 120 hour correspondence course for anyone intending to work as an EFL teacher. It is a complete course for those with little or no teaching experience or anyone seeking an introduction to EFL methods. It is ideal preparation for anyone considering the RSA/CTEFLA, the Trinity College Certificate or other full-time TESOL course. The course covers the basics of EFL teaching and, unlike other distance learning courses, offers advice on how to tackle more advanced TEFL qualifications, plus sections on living/working abroad, and finding work.

The course consists of five text units with nine written assignments. The assignments are mostly short essays. Each unit also contains exercises and/or case studies. With each unit you also receive relevant articles and examples of teaching materials. You work at your own pace without time restrictions. Your written work will be returned to you with helpful comments and suggestions. Throughout the course you will have access to a private tutor by e-mail or other arrangements to answer your queries. You will also receive advice on finding work. Help is available for anyone moving on to take a more advanced course. The text units are designed to provide a convenient reference throughout your teaching career. On completion of the course you will receive the certificate and a reference to aid your job search.

Each unit contains exercises and case studies plus an assignment to be completed and returned to your tutor.

This is just one section of the first Unit .


This is a preliminary course. However participants should possess a good level of written English. The standard of written work should be comparable with that on intensive TEFL courses that include teaching practice.


There is no time pressure to complete the course. You work at your own pace in conjunction with your tutor. Most people take four to five weeks to complete the course. Some take over a year. The choice is yours. The course is rated at 120 hours.


On enrolment you will allocated a tutor who will assess your work but also offer you help and encouragement and he or she will answer your questions. Throughout the course you can contact your tutor by e-mail for advice about teaching or employment matters. Support now continues following completion of the course.


Assessment is based on the quality of the written assignments as determined by your tutor. Borderline cases will be passed to another tutor for moderation. Participants are expected to show an understanding of the basic issues covered by the course and an awareness of the problems faced by language learners.

The Certificate

The certificate is awarded on a straightforward pass or fail basis and will be dispatched within ten days of our receiving your final assignment. The Certificate is printed on ‘aged’ gold paper and posted to you at the end of the course in a hard backed A4 envelope along with references and final assessment. Anyone failing to reach the required standard will be offered the opportunity to resubmit assignments at no extra cost. This will only be offered once.


Throughout the course you can contact your tutor by e-mail for advice about teaching or employment matters. Support now continues following completion of the course.
