How does Gotoco's TEFL work?

Our TEFL is offered in-house. This means we deliver and tailor the training segment to suit the needs of our programmes and our participants. The TEFL is awarded on the basis of 120 hours training and practice, which takes into account upwards of 70 hours teaching and lesson planning, as well as the 50 hour online course, delivered via PDF prior to and during the projects. Many schools also give you basic TEFL refresher training prior to beginning your teaching. Our TEFL will teach you TEFL’s core principles and enable you to get much more out of your programme.

There are nine chapters to the PDF training course covering different aspects of teaching in the classroom, with tips for resources, activities and on joining programmes in China. There are short questions to work through at the end of each chapter. At the end of the summer, once you have completed the questions and hours in the classroom, you will need to complete the short exercises and send them in for review. We will then issue you with your TEFL certificate.

For those of you who already hold a TEFL degree or wish to jump start their teaching careers with a higher certificate, we now offer the Trinity CertTESOL as part of many of our programmes. More information on the TESOL can be found here.
