TESOL Certificate IV program

The purpose of the course is to produce skilled and knowledgeable entry-level (English as a Foreign Language/English as a Second Language – EFL/ESL) teachers, teaching assistants and tutors. The course will also enable experienced but unqualified people to acquire a formal qualification in TESOL.

This course is intended to provide participants with a range of knowledge and skills to perform a variety of functions associated with teaching English to speakers of other languages and assisting learners to improve their English language skills, and to obtain teaching positions, tutoring or teaching assistant positions.

Participants will develop skills in classroom management, presentation techniques, lesson planning and resource preparation, together with skills and knowledge to assist English as a foreign language (EFL) and English as a second language (ESL) learners to improve their grammar, pronunciation, reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.

Participants will also develop an understanding of different methods of testing language ability and will have the skills and knowledge to be able to assist learners to prepare for a range of English language tests. They will also be provided with an overview of cultural issues likely to be encountered with English language learners both in Australia and overseas.


AICOL is particularly well-placed to deliver this Certificate lV in TESOL as it offers actual classroom experience to students of the TESOL course.  Practical classroom teaching experience, teaching both adults and children, is an essential part of the TESOL course.  AICOL can provide teacher experience to its TESOL students with our classes ranging from 6 years of age through to adults.
