SGI have been running high quality, good-value teacher training courses in London since the summer of 1993. Over two thousand English language teachers have successfully completed one of our highly-regarded and globally-recognised Trinity College London Cert TESOL courses. This is an excellent qualification providing very solid and thorough training for those with little or no prior teaching experience and who wish to teach English either overseas or in the UK. The course is now also available at our school in Vicenza, North East Italy. We now also offer a very useful Trinity add-on award to the TESOL Certificate called PTTLS. This short fast-track on-line course enables you to teach in the UK Lifelong Learning Sector in institutions such as further education colleges.
Besides the Trinity Certificate, we are also validated by Trinity to run courses leading to the more advanced English language teaching qualification commonly known as the Diploma (Trinity College London Dip TESOL). We have been running this online distance learning course since 1995. Hundreds of experienced teachers have successfully completed their Diplomas with us and many now have senior positions within English language teaching and teacher training organisations. The flexibility of our distance Diploma combined with our customary professional and effective approach has consolidated the industry view that we are one of the most affordable high quality providers of English language teacher training in the UK.
Another exciting new teacher training course that we now offer is the Trinity Certificate in International Business English Training (Cert IBET). This course is designed for teachers who have obtained their initial TEFL qualification experience or have some teaching experience who wish to develop their expertise in Business English teaching. Like our Diploma, this on-line distance learning course enables people from anywhere in the world to undertake the training. As always, we build flexibility into the programme enabling participants to work at their own pace. This new internationally-recognised qualification is an excellent way of building on your TEFL certificate qualification and should greatly increase employability prospects.
