Our 170-hour TESOL course with online specialization has been designed for those who would like to gain a qualification to enter the ESL employment market and wish to maximize their options. Through this course we will give you the knowledge and skills needed to teach English in both classroom and online settings. The course is taken in two parts: First, our 120-hour certification is completed. This is followed by a further 50-hours of study looking at the particular skills needed to teach English online. One added benefit of the course is that on completion you will gain access to a unique graduate network, connecting you to ITTT alumni currently employed by many of the major employers in online teaching.

The 120-hour TESOL course must be taken and completed first, followed by the 50-hour TEO course. Course participants are offered the option of either receiving two individual certificates as they complete each of the course components, or a single 170-hour certificate on completion of both.

Target Group

This course is designed for current teachers or trainees who have no previous TESOL experience and are looking for an initial certificate to get their teaching journey under way. It is suitable for anyone who is already working or intends to work within the field of English language teaching either online or in a traditional classroom.

Tutor Support

This two course bundle includes the support of an online tutor for the duration of both courses. Throughout your studies you will have access to the assistance of our experienced online tutors who you can contact at any time with any questions or problems you may have. Our tutors will respond with help and advice via email within one working day.

For both sections of the course, once you have fully studied the material for each unit, your understanding of it will be assessed through a multiple choice test before you move on to the next unit. Upon completing the test, you should check your answers and review your work before submitting. When you have successfully completed all units by scoring 75% or more on average overall, you will then complete a final task. Your certificate will be issued on successful completion.

You will be given up to six months to complete each part of the course (so a maximum of 12 months), and within this time frame you can work at whatever pace you feel comfortable with.

TEFL Course Aims

Our 170-hour online TESOL course provides you with a comprehensive introduction to the world of teaching English as a foreign language. Upon completion of the 120-hour course section you should have developed a good working knowledge of the English grammar system, as well as a variety of useful skills and techniques that will help you to deliver interesting and well constructed lessons in the classroom.

Upon successfully completing the full 170-hour course, graduates should be able to discuss and evaluate the process of teaching English online using industry standard terminology, have real-world ideas for creating individual lessons that are tailored to the student’s requirements, while also having clear ideas on how to execute the lessons to a wide spectrum of online individuals or groups. They should also be able to locate and create suitable materials for teaching English online and develop assessment procedures.

Optional Teaching Practice

This course comes with the option of free additional teaching practice that can be completed without having to attend one of our training centers. This will allow you to gain further teaching knowledge and some invaluable time in the classroom before you head off to start your first real-life teaching position. There are two different options for how the lessons are undertaken and verified:

Option 1: You can find a school or language center of your choice (either in-class or online) and teach your lessons there. The school will sign off that you have completed these lessons and your documents will be sent to ITTT for verification.

Option 2: You can find your own student/s and teach the lessons independently at a location of your choice, either face-to-face or remotely. You will need to video one of these sessions (1 hour) and send it to ITTT with your other documentation for verification.
