Trinity's TESOL qualifications

Trinity offers a range of well-established qualifications from initial to advanced level for prospective and practising teachers who speak English as a first, second or foreign language. They use the acronym TESOL to indicate the teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages. Similarly, they use ESOL to indicate simply English for Speakers of Other Languages.

Status of Trinity qualifications

The Trinity Certificate and Diploma are accepted by the British Council as an initial and a full TESOL qualification for teachers in schools and colleges accredited under the British Council's Accreditation in Britain Scheme, as well as in the Council's own teaching operations outside the United Kingdom. In addition, many other employers in the United Kingdom and worldwide accept the Certificate and Diploma as evidence of a teacher's training and demonstrated skills. Of course, employers will set other criteria when selecting a teacher for their own school or college.

The Trinity Certificate and Diploma are also approved by the British Association of TESOL Qualifying Institutions (BATQI) as respectively an initial and a full teaching qualification in ESOL. In addition, Trinity is working with the British Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) towards approval of all its qualifications for state support including the Trinity Certificate and Diploma TESOL.

Certificate in TESOL (Cert.TESOL)

The CertTESOL is the first level of qualification you can take in TESOL. Trinity validates or approves over 110 training institutions-or course providers-in all sectors, private and state, in the United Kingdom and overseas, to run these courses. Courses last for at least 130 hours and may be four weeks full-time (the shortest length) or anything up to a year part-time.

Trainees have to complete the whole course, including various written assignments and a minimum of six of hours teaching practice-i.e. proper teaching with real students. They have to pass all key components of the course to obtain the certificate.

Not everyone who wants to do the course can be accepted. There are entry criteria set individually by each course provider. They relate to age, educational qualifications, language skills and suitability for teaching. All course providers hold selection interviews.


All trainees must be over 18 years old and have the necessary qualifications for entry into higher education. In order to be offered a place on the course, trainees have to complete a pre-selection task and then participate in a twenty-minute interview where the task will be discussed. This can take place in person or over the phone.

Becoming an English Teacher

What you need

  • Either 2 A - Levels or equivalent, and a good level of written and spoken English coupled with a desire to teach.
  • The determination to see through a comprehensive and rewarding 4 weeks of revelations about how teachers teach and learners learn.
  • A willingness to acquire a taste for the insights and experiences which exist in the English teaching world.


The course comprises of over 120 hours of input, and 10 hours of teaching (6 hours group, 3 hours 1-2-1 and 1 hour peer) over four weeks. Trainees are expected to complete three written assignments: Unknown Natural Language Journal; Learner Profile Assignment; Material Analysis Assignment; furthermore trainees take one examination (language awareness) and are also expected to keep their notes and materials in good order.


The course can be divided into two main areas, classroom skills and language systems.

In the classroom skills sessions, trainees are introduced to the history of language teaching, motivational factors, teaching monolingual and multilingual classes, the basics of classroom management and how to set up different types of lessons. Trainees are also asked to analyse and evaluate material and are shown useful techniques such as language games, music and song, and video.

During the language skills sessions students are given a thorough introduction to the sound system and phonology of English, and a basic overview of the vocabulary and grammar structures in the English language. Trainees are also expected to present a language point to their peers.


In order to pass the course, trainees must produce satisfactory work in all components. Trainees are continually assessed on their teaching practice performance, upon which the bulk of the grade is based. As well of this there are three written assignments, and a language awareness examination.
