The TESOL programme is designed to provide individuals with the necessary knowledge and qualifications to teach English to speakers of other languages and is presented within the framework of a Christian worldview. It has a balanced focus in teaching the different skills TESOL professionals need and will provide students with:
• Sound understanding of how to teach English language forms and functions
• An awareness of cultural issues connected with language teaching and help students develop a sensitivity to cultural diversity
• An awareness of the diverse factors in teaching adult language learners and help students develop strategies to address the challenges
On completion of the TESOL programme opportunities for graduates may include:
• Teaching in professional English language programmes helping migrants and refugees gain language skills
• Teaching international students in English language schools or overseas universities, colleges and schools
• Working overseas in cross-cultural Christian ministries assisting in English language development.
