Our Certificate IV in TESOL is offered throug.h IH Sydney and brings the experience of both UK and Australian teacher training styles. Our course is registered within the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) and accredited by VETAB (NSW Government Vocational Educational and Training Accreditation Board), this Certificate IV in TESOL course has been developed specifically for people with a lower proficiency in English. It is a highly practical course which introduces you to current teaching methods, practical teaching ideas and a range of TESOL resources.
This is proving to be the most practical, hands on course in Singapore. Based on the CELTA, this Certificate IV has model English lessons everyday. These model lessons are what employers like about this course. Trainees work out of the New Cutting Edge (Upper Intermediate) for these model lessons and this gives trainees maximum exposure to working from a resource book. Trainees will gain confidence in adapting a commonly used resource material. Our Cert IV graduates have entered ESL classrooms in Singapore in 2010 ready to teach on day one.
