Graduate Certificate of TESOL(English Language)
A Graduate Certificate in TESOL is a full-time (40 Credit point) program designed to provide initial training for teachers of English as a Second Language. It provides the basis for language teaching methodology and its practical applications.
The course participants are required to complete at least 100 hours of theoretical component and the minimum of 6 hours of supervised classroom teaching.
There are currently no provisions in this program for Work Experience and Internships.
Students must undertake two subjects* (equivalent to 40 credit points).
Bond's Teaching methodology involves a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, examinations, projects, presentations, assignments, computer labs and industry projects.
Successful completion of the course qualifies someone (1) who holds either a recognised, pre-service teaching qualification or (2) a recognized degree or diploma and 800 hours of teaching ESL experience, to teach in an Australian ELICOS institute or the school system. Internationally, the graduates of this course teach in many countries across the five continents. For more details about requirements of teacher qualifications in Australia visit the National ELT Accreditation Scheme website. While we provide advice concerning the current TESOL job opportunities throughout the course, we do not find jobs for course participants.
