Qualifications

The profession of English Language Teaching has approximately 150 years of history. Which means that there is 150 years of knowledge that today’s teachers can learn from, and use to inform themselves about the right decisions to make for their students.

Tom holds 3 qualifications in teaching English as a foreign language:

1.
Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA ) – this is an internationally recognised ‘basic training’ course for English language teachers. A qualification like this is needed for English teachers to get their first jobs at the most respected private language schools around the word.

“Because it is awarded by Cambridge ESOL, part of the world-famous University of Cambridge, you can rely on its quality and recognition.”

2.
Trinity Diploma – This is an internationally recognised advanced (masters level) qualification for experienced English teachers. After doing this qualification many English language teachers become managers at their language school, become teacher trainers or go on to write English teaching materials such as course books.

“Trinity has been setting standards and testing English language for more than 50 years. Our certificates are accepted by universities and employers worldwide.”

3.
Certificate in International Business English Training (Cert IBET)
An advanced qualification for experienced teachers who wish to specialise in teaching English for business in an international environment.

“The Cert IBET qualification aims to meet the needs of business English trainers to enhance their skills and expertise, to increase their employability prospects in the sector, and improve their ability to deliver a quality product to potential clients.”
