Is this Certificate recognised internationally?

  • The answer is Yes. It is an International, Accredited and Advanced TEFL Certificate which covers up to 20 hours of Teaching Practice (including observed classes, peer observations, and training sessions) and 130 hours of TEFL Theory (including TEFL Methodology, Teaching Skills , Lesson Planning, continuous professional development, assignments and feedback).
  • It is a different franchise to CELTA – for instance – which is part of the British Council brand/ package (who offer 6 x 45-minutes of observed classes and 140 hours of theory). Therefore if you wish to work for a British Council accredited school in the UK, they will prefer their own certificate. But that is only true in some schools in the UK and a handful of others outside the UK.
  • So on an international level, please note that in most TEFL Job Listings, you will find 3 main requirements: a Bachelor’s Degree, Teaching Experience and an Accredited TEFL Certificate. >> With our programme we provide you with all of those 3 key requirements.

Practicum

Practicum is an essential component to a teacher’s training process, as it provides valuable insight and experience prior to obtaining independent teaching positions. PTTC requires that all students accumulate a minimum of 20 hours for TEFL/TESOL certification. These hours can be achieved through observation, tutoring, student teaching or a combination of 2 or 3 of these in an ESL/EFL setting in which non-native speakers are learning new English language skills.
