A Passport to Teach in Ireland & Abroad – Now available with Full Scholarship- Direct Full-Time Work Placements

Why do this certificate course?

The English Language (EL) sector in Ireland is the most successful in the world, per capita, at attracting foreign learners to study English. There are roughly 200 centres in Ireland where EL providers will be looking for suitably qualified teachers this year. This is a unique opportunity for recent college graduates to find interesting and rewarding work. The demand for EL teachers means the English Language centres are willing to pay full scholarships for those willing to work with them for 6 months following the successful completion of the course. That means you can now take this course for little or no cost and have a full-time job lined up afterwards.

What is Involved? 

Trinity Cert TESOL is a four and a half week intensive course which can be undertaken as an undergraduate and, provided you have done your final exams in late Spring or early Summer, can be used to teach immediately after your exams are over. To qualify to do the Trinity Cert TESOL course you need to be in the final year of your degree course. You need to be the sort of person who is outgoing, likes standing up in front of groups and you need to be interested in other nationalities and languages.

The Trinity Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CertTESOL) is a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate designed for people with little or no experience in teaching English, and for those with experience who require an internationally recognised initial teacher education qualification.

Preparing for the Trinity CertTESOL English language teaching certificate equips trainees with the basic skills and knowledge needed to take up their first post as an EL teacher. It gives an introduction to the theory and practice of English teaching and an insight into the challenges facing the learner and the role of the teacher.

Learn to Teach in the Ideal Setting

The Linguaviva Centre at 45 Leeson Street Lower is a boutique language school which has been providing English Language courses since 1977. Last year we taught over 35 different nationalities. We teach English using a Communicative Language Learning methodology to learners who come on both short-term and long terms programs. Our focus is on an individual approach to each learner with tailored study plans and programs linked to activities and excursion programs and residential and host family accommodation.

We are validated as a Trinity Cert TESOL provider and see our role as using our expertise to help candidates successfully complete their courses. Our trainers are all post-graduate qualified in ELT and all have over 10 years of experience training teachers. The course takes place fully face-to-face which means you get 5 weeks of experience working and studying in a fully functional ELT school. Our staff are friendly and always there to help. We have a dedicated training space and all the facilities, including an online archive of classes and a digital presentation of classes to help you succeed in your course.

The Qualification

The Trinity Cert TESOL is seen in Ireland as a Level 7 Special Award on the National Framework of Qualifications. To teach in a centre recognised by the Dept of Education you need to have your final exams done on a degree course and have completed either the CELTA or the Trinity Cert TESOL. No other certificate course in ELT is seen as valid, so be careful of wasting your time or money on other courses. For more information please see Regulations for the Recognised EL Sector.
