Level 5 Certificate in TESOL Teaching Practice Component
INTESOL offers you two options for the teaching practice component of your course:
Onsite Teaching Practice
INTESOL is the first TESOL/TEFL training provider to offer its Online Cert TESOL trainees a full week* of observed teaching practice. We have subsequently been able to develop a practice that will significantly enhance your skills and confidence not only in the classroom, but also during job interviews.
During your teaching practice you will:
For 8 hours per day, Monday to Friday you will be involved in observation, lesson preparation and teaching. By the end of the practice you will have completed at least 6 hours of observed and assessed teaching practice which satisfies the British Council requirement.
Starting day is Monday. The Teaching Practice component of the Level 5 Certificate in TESOL is available all year. You will be able to choose your centre later in the course.
Please note: The Onsite Teaching Practice is a one-to-one course with your personal mentor for the week. You will have gained all of the theory before you take any teaching practice, plus you will practice on real students in a real language school not on your peers or fellow students.Choose your teaching practice centre from the list below

Online Teaching PracticeA low-cost, time effective format and accessible by anyone wherever they are in the world is the INTESOL online TP. All you need is a computer and Skype. You will be given lessons to prepare. Your lesson plans and materials will be emailed to the Director of Studies in the school whose students you will be teaching.
You will be asked to suggest dates, and lessons will be arranged at times mutually convenient for you and the school. You will be able to decide whether to do your lessons on the same or different days. You will also have the option of planning and delivering just one group initially so that you can draw on the experience to plan the following group. You will be expected to plan 6 lessons of 40 minutes each, 3 at elementary level and 3 at a different level. You will be sent details of the lessons you must plan.
Here is an example of a lesson you may be asked to prepare and teach:
All your lesson materials will be printed out ready for the lessons; you will be able to ask the tutor to assist by handing out materials, showing flashcards etc.
At the end of the TP you will be asked to reflect on the practice and for oral feedback. Full oral feedback will then be given by the Director of Studies or tutor.
The Online Teaching Practice is a totally flexible, convenient method of completing your training.
