IPU TESOLIPU New Zealand offers one of the world’s most recognised English language teacher training courses, the Trinity College London Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CertTESOL).

The programme can be undertaken as a stand-alone course or as part of IPU New Zealand’s Bachelor of Contemporary International Studies. Last month eleven trainees embarked on the five-week course to gain the basic knowledge and skills they needed to plan lessons, teach English language skills, design learning materials, manage classes, and obtain their first ESOL teaching job.

Dr Elizaveta Tarasova, the CertTESOL co-ordinator, says the course is perfect for new teacher trainees with little or no experience.

“The CertTESOL further enhances our students’ career prospects upon graduation. Trainees get real-world teaching experience during the course, teaching learners from a range of ages, language levels, and cultural backgrounds,” says Dr Tarasova.
