We are a friendly and supportive team of practitioners in TESOL, bringing with us a broad range of experience in English Language Teaching and in Teacher Training. All of us have taught on DipTESOL courses and some of us are also Trinity DipTESOL examiners.
Our team of tutors is well placed to deliver teacher training in locations convenient to Exeter and Sheffield, where you can combine your professional development with your teaching job.
Unlike many similar courses, you don't need to complete any part of the course away from home. Your face-to-face workshops are delivered on Saturdays. Dates for the workshops are published in the course handbook at the beginning of the course.
Teaching assessments are carried out at your own place of work. (There is no need for you to travel away from home to teach students you don't know!)

"This course is excellent. It is well planned and organised and takes you through the syllabus in a structured, organised way. I chose this blended learning course, over an online course, because I felt the monthly workshops would be beneficial and this proved the case, with a knowledgeable and experienced tutor who was able to guide and offer support, as well as the chance to work with other students on the course.
Materials are relevant and the online content of the course is easy to use and accessible. Throughout the course, the support was outstanding.
For anyone considering studying the Trinity DipTESOL Course, I would suggest he/she seriously considers this course first."

"For me the best training was without doubt the phonology component where 1 hour with the tutor was worth a 100 hours with the course text."

"On paper, the diploma syllabus looked very daunting at the beginning of the course and though it is very challenging, I felt well-supported throughout the course, especially in preparing for the observations, which I found to be a very productive and rewarding experience."
