TESOL Australia’s International TESOL Certificate and International TESOL Diploma both include our exclusive ‘WORK EXPERIENCE!’ as part of your course.

Don’t just ‘study’ about Teaching English as a Second Language, do it!

As part of our unique and exclusive TESOL training you will do 3 hours TESOL Teaching WORK EXPERIENCE with an Online school. And, once you have completed your WORK EXPERIENCE you will receive a letter of reference from the school stating that you have completed 3 hours WORK EXPERIENCE program.

Why is WORK EXPERIENCE so important? What does it mean for you?

  • You are an experienced TESOL teacher, not just a nervous course graduate
  • You have ‘on the job’ training to give you confidence
  • You can apply for jobs that ask for ‘experience’ or pay more for ‘experienced’ TESOL teachers
  • Schools will prefer to hire you over someone with only a certificate
  • You will ‘hit the ground running’ in terms of teaching and job searching

How is the International TESOL Certificate completed?

You will be given your own login and password to enter our online Learning Portal. Here you will view short training videos, complete brief readings followed by quizzes to assess understanding or complete an assessment task to practice specific skills.

On the Learning Portal you will have access to a fully qualified and experienced TESOL trainer to assist you in completing tasks, answering questions and marking your work. You can work at your own pace, as quickly as you like or take your time. This course is on average completed within 8 – 12 weeks, but you have a full 12 months course duration, to give you plenty of time to complete it.

There is also no need to attend any in-class sessions, as this course is fully completed online including 3 hours Work Experience arranged for you via Skype once you have completed your theory units.
