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. This course can be added during your online application or after by emailing one of the team if already registered.

 

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 6 months 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 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. You can choose to download this certificate for free or pay a little extra to have a hard copy sent out to you. 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.

 

You will get the chance to work through 6 modules during the 60 hour TEFL course. These modules will include learning about the roles of the teacher and roles of the learner, pronunciation, teaching grammar and lesson planning. There will be assessment quizes at the end of each module and 2 assignments to complete along the way before finishing your course with a final exam.

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 TEFL course 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 all the modules very beneficial as they give you lots of tips and a range of skills on how to manage. The course just made the reality of teaching easier and much more fun.
