Course Description

The Graduate Diploma in TESOL provides a specialist qualification for those who want to teach English to speakers of other languages in Australia, internationally, to children, teenagers or adults, especially in the vocational sector. Students gain an in-depth understanding of areas such as second language development, systems of language and computer assisted language learning, along with practical skills in second language teaching and learning. Participants can choose from a range of subjects which provide a foundation in second language teaching and learning. The course also includes a supervised TESOL placement - a requirement of many employers. Although the program has a strong practical core, there is a greater emphasis on theory than the Graduate Certificate. Applicants are advised to check with potential employing bodies regarding employment requirements.
