60-HOUR ONLINE TEFL COURSE

For PMGY volunteers joining our teaching programmes the only real ‘qualifications’ you need are bags of energy, commitment and enthusiasm. If however you’d like a chance to do some preparation work before you hit the classroom, we’ve got the perfect introductory course to teaching english abroad.

 

At only 60 hours and completed online, this course is hugely convenient because it can be done in your own time, at your own pace and you don’t even need to leave the house! You’ve got a whooping 75 days to complete the course, so there is no rush and you can fit it in when you can. An hour here and there certainly adds up over the course of the couple of months you have to complete it, so there really is no pressure.

Once completed you’ll not only have acquired some key skills for teaching English abroad but you’ll also gain an internationally accredited certificate. If you find that teaching really is your calling, this course can be built upon with more modules leading to a paid teaching position in the future.

 

As well as a core module in the ‘Principles of Teaching English’ which covers ‘Understanding language’, ‘Key English grammar points’ and ‘How to teach grammar in the classroom’ you will have a choice of one of three specialist modules. The ‘Survival teaching’ module is perfect for volunteers covering ‘Teaching large classes’, ‘Teaching with limited resources’, ‘Learner-based training’ and ‘Cultural awareness’.

Core ‘Principles of Teaching English’ and ‘Survival Teaching' modules included.

I’d never been volunteering before and this was my first time travelling to anywhere off the beaten track. I hadn’t taught English before either so it was all very new and a bit daunting to be honest! I thought the TEFL course would help me to be prepared for at least one aspect of the trip and it was worth every hour and every penny. It really helped me to help them if you know what I mean. By having more than a few teaching tricks up my sleeve, each day was fun and productive too. Not sure what I would have done without it?

It wasn’t until I got to Ghana that the true benefits of the TEFLcourse came to life. The 60 hours didn’t seem to take long when I spread it over the few months and the course content was relevant to the project, especially the cultural awareness. I don’t think anyone can be 100% prepared for how different everything is in a developing country like Ghana but I do think the cost of the course and the time required was well spent as it just made my time there a lot more productive.

Even if you’re pretty confident in front of a classroom of students, this course prepared me for things I’d not necessarily expected, like how big and mad the classes of children are. There where days when there were a lot of kids, all pretty hyper and desperate to get involved. It was pretty full on and sometimes a bit overwhelming. I found the extra Survival module a life saver as it gave you lots of tips and skills on how to manage. It just made the reality of teaching easier and much more fun.
