Certificate IV in TESOL

(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)

tesol certificate iv

Enrol before the 15th of June 2017 (extension granted by AQF):

Enquiring about the Certificate IV in TESOL? We feel it’s only fair that you should be aware of significant government changes happening in June 2017 that will affect you.

So what changes will take place?
You will be required to study an extra 380 hours as per a volume of learning requirement from the Australian Government (ASQA).

This will mean an increase in course fees to reflect the extra cost of delivering a longer course.
These requirements affect all schools currently offering the Cert IV in TESOL 40649SA.

Once these changes take effect, you will be subject to triple the study load and an increase in cost for the same level qualification!

How do you avoid this?
The only way to avoid this is to start the Cert IV in TESOL 40649SA now before the changes take place on the 15th of June 2017.

If I enrol now will that mean I only have until 15th of June 2017 to finish my course?
No, anyone who has enrolled and started the Cert IV in TESOL 40649SA before the changes, will have until Dec 31, 2018 to complete their course.

Does this mean the current course won’t be recognised anymore and/or I have to upgrade later?
No, both the current version and the new one will be the same level qualification.
Unlike some qualifications, older versions of the Cert IV in TESOL have always remained valid.
