Deliver the Trinity CertTESOL at your English Language centre

Language Point Training is proud to be validated by Trinity College London to deliver the prestigious Trinity College London Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CertTESOL), an internationally respected initial teacher education qualification which appears at level 5 on the UK Regulated Qualifications Framework. This is a very highly regarded benchmark qualification in TESOL, which is accepted as proof of quality in the industry by schools and education authorities worldwide.

Courses can be held at a location of your choice, with a minimum of 9 trainees attending. This means you can organise courses at your centre, to be delivered by world-class Language Point teacher educators. Hosting teacher education courses raises the profile of a school, bringing teachers and students to your centre, building a stronger team for you and more recruitment possibilities for your organisation.

NEW! Online CertTESOL component

If you are a Validated CertTESOL provider, you can reduce the face-to-face hours of your course by adding the Language Point Online course phase to your programme. 

The online component of the CertTESOL can reduce face-to-face time to 2-3 weeks, allowing trainees to manage their own time prior to the practical face-to-face component delivered at your centre, by your trainers.

The online system is flexible so that you can incorporate it into your existing programme of study, and course trainers are given access to monitor trainee progress, join discussions and respond to assignment work. The system we use is more than just a point-and-click experience, with video tasks, research activity, collaborative tasks and a task calendar to ensure that all trainees are on track for the practical component of the course at your centre.

The Language Point online phase allows trainees to:

engage with their peers on the course

gain experience from industry experts in video and reading tasks

submit assessed course assignments digitally

organise their time independently

make pre-course contact with course trainers
