Deliver Trinity College London TESOL qualifications
as a Language Point partner centre

The Level 5 Trinity CertTESOL and Level 6 Trinity CertPT courses can now be delivered
through partner centres worldwide

Language Point Teacher Education is proud to be one of the first training providers in the world to be validated by Trinity College London to deliver an entirely online version of the prestigious Level 5 CertTESOL qualification.

We work with partner centres worldwide to develop teacher training activity at their premises. Course trainees complete the course content online through our online learning system, then attend a practical observed teaching element of the CertTESOL, where lessons are observed either on-site or online, by your centre's staff, or at a distance by Language Point trainers.

We also offer partnership opportunities to work with experienced teachers on the Level 6 Trinity Certificate for Practising Teachers (CertPT), a progression qualification for teachers with at least 6 months of experience and a language proficiency of CEFR B2. This qualification can be offered as a pathway towards MA-level qualifications in TESOL, or as part of local teacher development projects with groups of language educators.

Why become a partner centre?

Hosting CertTESOL or CertPT courses at your institution can greatly enhance your reputation as a quality provider of TESOL activity. In addition, it provides a source of highly-qualified teachers, and can bring more language learners through your door to study as part of the teaching practice phase of the course.

The flexibility of online, blended and face-to-face course modes is attractive to trainees, as it can reduce travel and accommodation costs for trainees travelling to study the course. This makes it a marketable solution for many potential applicants who would not otherwise be able to take the course.
