London School of English to offer Tesol courses

15 October, 2015

The London School of English (LSE), UK, has announced it will add the Trinity College Tesol teacher training certificate to its professional development portfolio from November.

The London School of English will offer Trinity College teacher training programmes for domestic and international students.

The four-week intensive Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (Tesol) programme will be offered at LSE's Westcroft Square training centre in West London.

The Trinity College CertTesol is designed for students starting out a career in English language teaching and is accepted by the British Council as an initial qualification for teachers at its accredited centres in the UK and its own language training operations overseas.

Course Coordinator, Karen Chambers, said, "We have a long tradition of teaching excellence at The London School of English and our team look forward to sharing their experience and expertise to enable trainees not just to be good teachers, but great teachers. We will help them to reach their full potential in the classroom."

Commenting on expected demand for the CertTesol, Martin McDonald, Director of Sales & Marketing at LSE, said, "We anticipate the majority of business will come from London, although not necessarily from just UK nationals. And there should also be interest from certain European agents too."

He continued, "We often receive requests from institutions that require specific teacher training and it also sits nicely alongside our Effective Lecturing Skills in English course, which is aimed at tertiary-level lecturers who operate with English as their medium for instruction."

Established in 1912, LSE is the UK's oldest accredited language school, with two centres in London and another in Canterbury, as well as a branch in Stockholm, Sweden, and franchise operations in Thailand, Saudi Arabia and Georgia.
