Diploma TEFL

magnifying_glassThe course offers participants the opportunity to undertake guided research without the pressures normally associated with such courses. It is hoped that participation in the course will give people confidence to undertake higher level courses and to make a contribution to TEFL theory. The completed project should enhance the employment projects of the writer. At the very least it indicates that you are serious about your chosen career.

There are four components to the course:

1. Research methods and resources.
2. Comparison of research articles.
3. A short essay chosen from a list of approximately 10 subjects and based on original research.
4. A 5-6,000 word research project of your choice or chosen from an approved list.

After choosing your topic for research a time schedule must be agreed with your tutor. It is anticipated that the project will take around three months, working at your own pace.

You will work independently but will be expected to consult with your tutor and discuss ongoing work. Final grades [A, B, C,D Pass] will be decided jointly by your tutor and an external assessor.

We will be seeking a high standard of work and evidence of original research on this course.

The course is open to all but participants are expected to have a basic working knowledge of TEFL TESOL methodology and theory. Ideally they will have completed a course such as our own Certificate in TEFL.

The Diploma is printed and posted to you at the end of the course in a hard backed A4 envelope along with references and final assessment.

The course is rated at 240 hours.

This course should not be confused with the RSA DELTA which is probably the best practical teaching available and is aimed at experienced and qualified EFL teachers.
