This Course at a Glance

  • Complete a specialist TESOL CPD qualification and increase your earning prospects
  • Ideal progression from Level 5 TEFL/TESOL qualifications

About Your Course

If you’re a practising online teacher (or transitioning to online teaching) who is looking to grow your teaching experience and enhance your specialist skills in developing practical and effective teaching resources, the Trinity CertPT is for you. This Level 6 certificate assesses the professional knowledge and insight you need to evaluate, adapt, create, and reflect on the use of context-specific teaching resources, all of which support your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

The course is designed around pedagogical outcomes rather than specific English language competency and requires the completion of four teaching activities. These activities require you to use resource evaluation, creation, and application to develop your knowledge and practice.

With direct reference to your teaching context, successful completion of this course will enable you to evaluate, adapt, and create teaching or training resources to meet the needs of a specified learner or learner group. You will also be able to justify and reflect on pedagogical decisions made to meet the needs of learners, demonstrate an awareness of their formative assessment, and use academic referencing to meet the needs of intended learning outcomes.

Additional Information

This Certificate for Practising Teachers (CertPT) is an in-service vocational teaching qualification listed at Level 6 on Ofqual’s Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), equivalent to a Master’s level qualification.

Trinity College London is an international exam board regulated by Ofqual (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) in England, CCEA Regulation in Northern Ireland and by Qualifications Wales.

Getting Started

The Level 6 Trinity Certificate for Practising Teachers (CertPT) is all online learning, which means you don’t have to wait for a new term to start, as you would do with an in-person class, and you can fit your learning around your existing schedule. All you have to do is enrol and you can start studying whenever you’re ready, at a pace that suits you, via our online student portal.

As one of our students, you will also have a dedicated tutor to support you throughout the course. They will be able to answer any questions you might have about the modules or tasks and will be marking all your assignments.

In addition, as the UK’s leading online learning provider, we want to make sure our courses are as affordable and accessible as possible. So, we have created flexible payment options to suit every budget.

You will be provided with support throughout your learning journey. Specialist tutors will be assigned to you, guiding you through your Teaching Practice. They’ll mark your assignments and answer your questions.
