This specialist certificate is designed for qualified English language teachers and is designed to equip them with the skills and knowledge to teach English to children and adolescents in the age range 7-16.
TYLEC is now available at Language Link Hanoi after meeting Trinity’s rigorous validation criteria. All TYLEC courses are validated and moderated by Trinity College London.
TYLEC courses are designed to build knowledge, understanding and confidence in areas such as using resources, classroom management and lesson planning. They also raise awareness of the context and theory of language teaching and learning to children and adolescents. Courses consist of over 50 hours of input, assisted lesson planning time and tutorials. There are also five assessed observations (one diagnostic and four assessed) as well as opportunities to observe experienced teachers working with young learner groups.
In addition, participants have to keep a teaching practice journal and complete an externally-assessed assignment on materials development. Validated courses build on pedagogical and practical skills and also give participants a firm foundation for self-evaluation and further professional development.
