We intend to confirm places at least 2 weeks before each course begins but late applications may be considered up till the start of the course. During the interview there will be group tasks as well as an individual interview time - it is a competitive process and not first come first served.

Where can I progress to?

Although employment can be gained in the FE sector, further specialist teacher training must be undertaken in-service. This includes a DTLLS and the L5 ESOL Subject Specifications which can be taken as an 'Additional Diploma' through a variety of awarding bodies including Cambridge or Trinity.

After 2 years teaching experience the DELTA can be undertaken and this is the best qualification for those who wish to work mainly in the private sector or overseas.
