Applicants must complete the Application form and Pre-Interview Task (hand written).
These should be posted to Waikato Pathways College or scanned and emailed.
Besides daily sessions on teaching methodology and language analysis, the course offers teaching practice, observation of experienced teachers in the classroom and the completion of a range of practically-focused written assignments.
Candidates are assessed continuously during the course and there is no final examination.
TEFL is not the name of any one specific course; in fact, it's a concept.
It stands for 'Teaching English as a Foreign Language', and is often found written in many other variations: TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), ESL (English as a Second Language) and TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) among them.
The CELTA, however, is the TEFL qualification, and it’s what most employers are looking for when they request it on their job advertisements.
