Programme Fees and Funding
The LSSE leads the way by making the ‘English as a Foreign Language Course,’ a mandatory part of the diploma. This not only fulfils the government’s objective to promote teaching English; it also ensures that students who have graduated with a diploma, will have attained the necessary specialised knowledge and skills to be able to deliver their teaching with confidence. The course is suitable for both existing teachers, and student teachers.
The LSSE believes in inclusion and equality, hence, there are no stringent entry requirements for keen students who wish to attain the ‘Diploma in English & Cultural Education.’ All that the LSSE requires, is for candidates to have an acceptable standard of English language and grammar; and to be genuinely interested in teaching and understanding the values of African culture.
Teaching English as a second language (ESL), is an important role for educators. This is due to the fact that ESL teachers not only help bridge the language barrier; in many cases, they serve as cultural mentors to their students; thus, helping them manoeuvre the many cultural nuances and differences that spring up in a new country. Indeed, ESL teachers have a direct effect on their student’s lives.
The Teaching English as a Foreign Language Course is a 120-hour training course for teachers of English as a Foreign Language.
It is suitable for existing teachers as well as student teachers. All we ask is that you have a good level of English and a good knowledge of grammar. If you think you may need to top up your English skills, please take our English course at level C2 first. This will provide you with the required English language skills.
Section 1, Introduction, is the document you are reading right now.
Sections 3 to 8 concentrate on Teaching EFL. Please work through all the materials and submit your assignments. In total, you are asked to submit 3 teaching videos of 5 minutes length each. There are 11 assignments for you to complete and submit. There is no end-of-course assessment/test.
Section 2 is a very large part of the course. It is, in fact, our complete Diploma in Teaching course. We have included this because we wanted to ensure that you have the best possible start to your career in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. It gives a very detailed insight into what it means to be a good teacher, how to create and deliver successful lessons, classroom management, how to deal with difficult students, and much more. There are no assignments for this part of the course, as we really want to concentrate on Teaching EFL in this course. However, you must read the materials and fill in your personal development journal. Of course, we will be discussing any questions you have regarding any materials in this section during our regular online sessions.
This course is accredited and, to be awarded credit, you must satisfactorily complete written components. Successful students will receive credit, awarded by the Board of Studies of London School of Social Enterprise and Sustainable Economics and International Affiliates. The award will be presented in the form of Advanced Certificate. Exceptional students will be recognised.
