Introduction to Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
This is a course we offer to Sixth-Forms as part of their wider co-curricular programme for Year 12 and 13 students.
For a number of years, we’ve run successful courses at Sherborne School for Girls and Canford School as part of their enrichment and enterprise programme.
The course is very practical in nature and equips students with real world skills, which may be beneficial on a gap year, or to support them through university and beyond.
The course looks to develop skills like classroom management, evaluating & planning, teaching young learners and creative materials design.
Students who study languages have also found that having to analyse English for teaching purposes has enhanced their understanding of their own language.
Each course is tailored to suit individual requirements and can include one or more trips to ITTC to practice teaching English.
`I thought the course was great and always looked forward to our sessions. I learnt a lot and thought it was really well organised and informative’
