The course deals with specific areas in the teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). It includes each of the following areas:
You will learn by a mixture of supervised teaching, observation of 'live' lessons taught by experienced teachers, peer observation, tutorials, and group and independent study. You will also have access to the computing resources in the College, including the latest multi-media facilities in the FLEX. Your teaching skills will be assessed throughout the course and you will also be required to complete written assignments.
This nationally and internationally recognised qualification will enable you to teach English to adults in Britain and other countries. Successful candidates can apply for the Level 5 Additional Diploma in ESOL, or the combined ESOL/Literacy, or take a generic programme such as the Diploma in Education and Training or PGCE. You can also gain some practical experience of teaching ESOL in a college or community setting.
The cost is £1400 (including the exam fee). It is possible to pay in installments depending on credit history.
You must be at least 18 years of age and have a good academic background. You should have, as a minimum entry requirement, a standard of education which is equivalent to what is required for entry into higher education. You should be a native English speaker or have a written and spoken standard of English, that is equivalent to native speakers undertaking courses at this level. You will be assessed prior to enrolment.
