Entry Requirements

Can anyone teach English? What are the conditions?

The path to becoming an English teacher isn’t difficult or long. Most important, is that you enjoy and have the patience to teach; this will give you confidence and control of the classroom.

English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers are auxiliary to the education process, focusing on listening comprehension and speech; there is no need for a full English linguist education degree. All candidates over 20 years old are welcome to apply for the 10695NAT - Certificate IV in TESOL course hosted at Seu TESOL and provided by Language Training Institute (LTi), RTO Provider Code 30173..

What are the requirements?

• All native or near-native English speakers aged over 20 years old with any bachelor degree which was studied/completed in English are welcome to our course.

• There is no previous teaching experience or qualification required.

• We can accept Non-English mother-tongue speakers if they provide English language efficiency evidence.

Evidence of English proficiency examples include:

• Completion of a Certificate III or higher level Course in the Australian Qualification Framework (this must have been studied/completed in English)

• Enrollment in other courses of study requiring equivalent or above levels of English ability (for example a University Bachelor Degree)

• A result from an endorsed English proficiency test (with an IELTS score of 5.5 or equivalent for 10695NAT - Certificate IV in TESOL entry or 6.0 for 10688NAT - Diploma of TESOL entry)

If you are unable to provide evidence of English proficiency, you may be asked to complete an entry test. Please contact us to discuss.
