Course content

This programme will equip you with relevant, practical teaching skills as well as developing English language awareness, global citizenship skills, and a wider awareness of issues related to English language, learning and teaching. 

You will be supported, throughout, in considering the role of language in a global context and the associated benefits for citizens, nationally and internationally, as developing linguists; that is, how to enhance both your own prospects and those of your prospective students in a global context.

The course is offered on a full-time or part-time basis and is aimed at those who work, or intend to work, as TESOL professionals - teaching English at home or abroad.
