The Graduate Certificate of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (GC TESOL ) is a short-term focused study that forms part of and with a direct pathway into the Master of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MTESOL) which is designed to address the wide diversity of educational backgrounds of students who wish to teach English, and to meet their professional needs. This course is offered to Australian students working and/or intending to work overseas as TESOL teachers, students who are unable to leave their place of work or country and wish to study in Cloud (online) mode as well as international students who want to study TESOL in Australia. The course is open to qualified professionals including teachers, in the field of education and training.
This course offers the opportunity for students to critically interpret communication in intercultural contexts; develop skills in analysing their learners' language and English as an international language; and develop an understanding of the language teaching profession in a local and global context.
GC TESOL is not an initial teaching qualification in Australia. If an applicant does not already hold a teaching qualification recognized in Victoria they cannot meet VIT requirements through undertaking this course.
Students who are qualified teachers and are eligible for Victorian Institute of Teaching registration are advised to enrol in the accredited teaching course E552 Graduate Certificate of Education (TESOL) to teach ESL in Australian schools.
The course is offered by campus and Cloud (online) delivery in both full and part time mode. Students may choose to do units in either campus or Cloud (online), full or part time modes. The campus based units will be taught at Burwood (Melbourne). Students receive instructional materials offered through CloudDeakin and website links.
Interaction with lecturers and classmates is also provided through use of CloudDeakin, email and telephone links. Campus based units are normally delivered late afternoon through face-to-face teaching in scheduled classes at Burwood (Melbourne).
