Become an English Teacher
Our Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (Or CertTESOL for short) is an internationally recognised qualification for teaching English as a foreign language! This course is accredited by Trinity College London and is recognised by The British Council as an initial qualification for teaching English both abroad and here in the UK. This certificate is accredited on the UK Qualifications Framework at level 5 (equivalent to the second year of a degree).
Some of our graduates have gone on to teach in colleges, universities, and private language schools here in the UK; while others have used the qualification to travel around the globe – teaching in situations as varied as Japanese Universities, Italian summer camps, primary schools in rural Tanzania, and everything in between!

We have developed two different models of this course in order to make the CertTESOL as accessible to as wide a range of people as possible. Both models will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to teach English to your students in both online and face to face settings. Both models result in exactly the same internationally renowned certificate.
Model 1: Part-time: This model takes 15 or 16 weeks to complete and usually involves elements of online and face to face study (note – now a fully online option is available for those who are unable to attend our school in Nottingham). In this course the teaching theory and methodology modules are learned through online work completed from Monday to Friday each week. The practical modules are completed either by attending sessions on Saturdays – either face to face, or online via video link. This course has been designed with those who are working, or completing other studies, in mind – requiring on average around 9-12 hours of study per week
Model 2: Full-time: This model usually takes 5 weeks to complete. It covers exactly the same content and practice as the part-time course, but requires full time study for the duration of the course, and is held face to face at our premises in Nottingham.
Why study with us?
Language Tuition Nottingham is proud to be one of the first schools to offer the CertTESOL qualification as a ‘blended learning’ course – which combines the convenience of online learning with the practical advantages of learning face to face with experienced tutors. (And we have now expanded this with a fully online option, which allows you to attend our face to face sessions by video link!) You will leave the course with all the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience required to teach English as a foreign language in both face to face and online classroom environments.
Our course has been designed to be accessible to all, and meet the needs of modern professionals who want to work as they study, or for those who would like to complete a teaching certificate while studying another course (for example to complement a University degree).
Our tutors are incredibly experienced with years of experience as teacher trainers, both here in the UK and abroad. We have worked very closely with Trinity College London to prepare the online study materials, so you can be sure that you won’t find anyone more qualified to guide you through this course.
In comparison to many other teacher training course providers, we work in small groups – with a maximum of four trainees* for every tutor – to ensure that you receive the time and support that you need to kick start your career.
