Are you an ESOL teacher looking to improve your skills and qualification?

Our ESOL Teachers Training programme offers an accredited Level 3 ESOL Teacher Training award in English for Literacy and Language Teaching.

The training will help to: 

  1. Build your confidence as a teacher,
  2. Adapt materials for different learner levels,
  3. Address issues for lower-level learners and those with literacy issues,
  4. Integrate low-level technology in your lessons

Our Commitment

We know there is no one-size-fits-all approach to learning, and your success is our primary objective. We offer learner-friendly delivery modes which mean we have various options to suit your schedule and learning preference. We will complete a bespoke learning plan determining your journey on the programme, lasting a maximum of 6 months. Course delivery includes five one-to-one online coaching sessions and targetted learning activities in small groups.


We are committed to supporting you so that you can reach your goals.

  • The course delivery includes an evening and weekend option, for those who work full-time.
  • If you have more free time and would like to complete the course as quickly as possible, there is an intensive option.
  • For those used to working school hours - we offer you an option to attend then.
  • And if you have limited time during the week - we have an option for you to attend lower weekly hours, for more weeks. 

Your Commitment

The only thing we require of you is your time and dedication.  

  • Completing the Level 3 award will require approximately 60 hours of study. 
  • The award must be completed over a maximum period of 6 months.
