Is there a difference between Trinity CertTESOL and CELTA?
Both Trinity CertTESOL, and CELTA are qualification courses aimed at both beginner teachers and those who are already practicing. Both are provided by British Universities – (CELTA – Cambridge, Trinity – Trinity College, London). Both are Level 5 certificates according to the British grading system. Trinity is also accredited by OFQUAL.

Both certificates are recognised equally by employers.
Is it necessary to have teaching experience?
You do not have to have experience in order to be accepted onto the course, although candidates should have some language awareness. However, we find that trainees with previous teaching experience gain a lot more insight into their teaching and usually gain a lot more.
How is the course assessed?
Your tutors are Trinity approved, and will assess your work throughout the course. They will grade each lesson, and also mark your assignments on your chosen learner and the unknown language. There will also be a Language Awareness test in the final week. Your tutors will be on hand to help you through all of these, and if a trainee slips then the tutors will work hard to support him or her. On the final day, a Trinity approved moderator will assess your materials assignment and conduct a short interview with each trainee. Again, we will prepare you well for this in advance.
What are the final grades?
The course is PASS/FAIL. However, we only accept candidates onto the course who we believe are capable of succeeding. Even if there are some slips, we believe that every candidate can pass the course.
