The Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages is awarded by Trinity College London, and is recognised by the British Council and by language schools worldwide as a suitable initial qualification for teaching English as a foreign language. To gain the Certificate, candidates must follow a course at a centre approved by Trinity College and satisfy the course tutors and a Trinity College Moderator, who visits all courses and interviews all candidates personally. Candidates are assessed continuously on their contribution to the course, their teaching practice, their lesson planning and written work, and on a range of assignments including a materials project and a written profile of an individual learner.
