We recommend that potential course participants research the requirements for whatever country, and particular employment opportunities that may apply by performing a job search. Click here for a Google search on ESL Teaching Jobs Please note: The course is assessed holistically and students must complete all assessment for the whole course to be awarded the full qualification, except for the first unit of the course which can be assessed as a stand-alone unit (TESACL401A – Analyse culture and learning).
- 10317NAT – Certificate IV in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) = all 9 Core Units and 1 Elective Unit
If a student withdraws from the course after being assessed as competent in TESACL401A – Analyse culture and learning but before they have completed all course assessment, then they will be awarded a Statement of Attainment for TESACL401A – Analyse culture and learning only. A statement of attainment will not be issued for any other single units.
Certificate IV Course Outcomes
Below is a basic breakdown of the two possible outcomes for graduates of the 10317NAT – Certificate IV in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Outcome A (for those with no previous teaching experience or qualifications): Participants who do not have the qualifications or experience outlined under Outcome B below will be able to teach English in a less demanding and less professional capacity. For example:
- To groups of visiting students on short term study tours
- To small groups of migrants in a supervised and limited capacity for the development of general English skills
- To overseas students on an individual tuition or small group tutorial basis
- Overseas in institutions not governed by Australian standards where predominantly conversational English teaching is required
Outcome B (for experienced or qualified participants): A participant who already has a Tertiary Level degree and then also completes the Certificate IV in TESOL will find a wider range of employment opportunities. For example, in Australia, the combination of a University Degree and the Cert IV in TESOL would be sufficient for teaching English at a National ELT (English Language Teaching) Accreditation Scheme (NEAS) accredited training centre (see www.neas.org.au/teachers/elt.php )
In order for you to gain entry into the LTi Certificate IV in TESOL Course, you need to have a sound level of ability in written and spoken English. One of the following examples of evidence of English proficiency must be provided prior to enrolment in the course:
- Your resume (with an IELTS score of 5.5 or equivalent)
- A result from an endorsed test of English proficiency
- Endorsements from a supervisor in your workplace at a tertiary level in English
- Evidence of having completed studies
- Written documents you have produced High School report results from year 12 level English
If you are unable to provide evidence of English proficiency, please contact us to discuss what options are available. You may be asked to complete an entry test or participate in an interview over the phone or face to face.
