ITTT’s online TESOL Diploma is an advanced level training course that is primarily designed for practicing teachers who are already TEFL/TESOL qualified. The course is a popular choice for a wide range of people, particularly those who are looking to increase their overall teaching knowledge and qualifications in order to gain an advantage when applying for higher level teaching positions.
The course is research based and requires you to utilize the internet and other resources to examine and develop your own understanding of a variety of relevant topics. The modules that make up the course cover subjects including the historical development of English language teaching, different approaches to course syllabus design, designing classroom materials, student assessment strategies, and classroom management.
The TESOL Diploma is available either with or without the support and guidance of an experienced online tutor. While this choice is entirely down to each individual applicant, we do recommend the tutored option for those who are not familiar with independent study. Whichever option you choose, we are confident that you will find the course both interesting and stimulating, and of course, a valuable addition to your CV/résumé.
We also offer two multi-course packages that include the TESOL Diploma course. Our 470-hour Professional Package consists of four online courses; the 120-hour TEFL/TESOL certification course, the 50-hour course in teaching business English (CTBE), the 50-hour course in teaching English to young learners (CTEYL), and the 370-hour TESOL Diploma. As with the individual course, this package can be completed either with or without the support of an online tutor. You will also be given the option of receiving four individual certificates (one for each course completed), or a single 470-hour certificate that covers all four courses.
Our second course package is the 550-hour Expert Package that offers six top courses that will really set you up for your overseas teaching adventure. This option includes the four courses from the Professional Package, as well as a 50-hour course in teaching English online (CTEO) and a 30-hour certificate of teaching practice recognition (CTPR). Once again, you can choose whether to receive the support of an online tutor, and whether to receive an individual certificate for each component or a 550-hour certificate that covers all the components of the package.
