Course content

Is this course right for you? We’ve designed our TESOL course for people in the UK, Europe and beyond who are interested in teaching English as a second or foreign language. You’ll be looking to boost your professional skills, discuss language learning and leap into the analysis of teaching English around the globe. Together we’ll explore the theories and key principles of language education. Our teaching is rooted in practice meaning you’ll be able to apply everything you learn in your own classroom. At the same time, you’ll become aware of national and international issues in teaching English to other language speakers. You’ll also explore debates around the role of non-native speaker teachers. Our unique Educational Management module delves into practical educational management challenges and helps you prepare for more senior roles. Outside of the classroom, you’ll have the opportunity to attend a conference and boost your CV with work experience such as teaching English to local refugees and asylum seekers.

Summative assessment is based mainly on a portfolio-building approach. You will also be engaged in writing reflective accounts, projects, essays and an extended research study based on your personal professional interests. You will be given clear assessment criteria and constructive feedback for each piece of work. Formative assessment opportunities are also embedded in each module, where you will receive individual feedback on in-session tasks and selected drafts of your work.
