International IELTS Teaching Certificate
(International English Language Testing System)
The IELTS Teaching Certificate is for those wanting to upgrade their ESL teaching to the next level by specialising in teaching preparation for language proficiency. This will increase both employability and earning potential exponentially in Australia and overseas.
Millions of ESL students worldwide undertake the IELTS as evidence of English language proficiency yearly (over 2.5 million tests were taken globally, last year alone) to communicate in English for further education, immigration, work and professional accreditation.
This IELTS training is second to none and developed through extensive research, teaching experience, feedback from IELTS students and school/employer IELTS professionals. It covers not only the four testing skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, but also explicit test knowledge of the speaking and writing bands with conversion and task development for listening and reading.
In this course unique training is given on how to administer mock tests and calculate approximate band scores in all four test areas. This scoring knowledge will enable you to analyse your ESL students mock test results and abilities accurately according to IELTS band criteria and then, provide them with detailed feedback by way of a professional report (template provided).
Training will then be given in developing strategic lessons to bridge the gap between a student’s current scores and the scores the student must achieve.
Teaching observation and practicum is included in this training, you will, observe online IELTS classes (min 3 hrs, no max) and develop lessons to deliver online while being observed and assessed (min 3 hrs). In addition, you will do a minimum of 7 hrs marking of IELTS mock tests and reports.
This practical training will give you the experience and expertise to design and deliver professional IELTS lessons making you a highly sought after teaching professional.
In this course you will learn how to develop your own IELTS classes, market yourself to students and deliver or privately tutor (online & in-class IELTS), effectively training you in how to open your own IELTS non-accredited private school.
