The program has been designed by Global TESOL authorities to license qualified teachers to teach International English worldwide. Certification applies to teachers from English speaking countries as well as from countries where English is not a mother tongue. Unfortunately, today due to the growing demand in English teachers most of the unqualified teachers are being hired and this compromises the reputation and true value of real professional TESOL education system. To avoid this precedent, TIELC together with ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages - USA & Canada) issues Certificates and Licenses to teach English as proof of qualification and experience while verifying credentials of a teacher. In order to obtain the license, teachers must take the CETC (Certificate English Training) Course accredited by TESOL. As the result of this training, teachers will pass the final qualifying test and acquire:

  • “Certificate of a Teacher of English as an International Language”
  • “License of Advance Standing for Teachers of International English”
  • “License to Teach International English”.

The Certificate and License prove that the holder meets internationally acceptable English teaching standards and can be hired by any school, college, university to teach EFL, ESL, ESOL, EIL worldwide. The certification distinguishes the holder with an internationally acknowledged qualification in teaching English. Currently most of the countries in need of qualified teachers TEFL, TEIL, TESOL, TESL like USA, China, Japan, S. Korea, most of Middle East and European countries are reconsidering their criteria of hiring professionals where the license becomes the milestone to choose the best and secures the Internationally set standards. TIELC has authority to grant “Certificate of Good Standing” to institutions allowing them to enter a database of internationally recognized schools where English teaching quality matches International TESOL/CELTA standards.

The course espouses three categories depending on credentials the teacher wishes to obtain. However, trainees for only 120- and 60-hour courses can acquire both certificate and license. Licensed teachers have full recognition to work in any country of the world where they are hired as ESL teachers.

120-hour course is titled as the Master course and gives full rights to a holder to teach university and college students, adults and children. Their sphere of competence is not limited. The 60-hour course or Standard one is basically for middle and high school teachers, although it is up to an employer’s discretion to hire them for other levels. The 40-hour course is designed for teachers of primary schools and kindergartens and mostly is used to be employed locally. The selection for the level is determined by the passmark in a final qualifying test.

Important: Number of hours in the header of the course DOES NOT correspond to actual teaching hours. These are credit hours and the duration of the course depends on such parameters as the size of the class, successful academic achievements of trainees, number of modeling lessons they perform, etc. The table shows minimum and maximum time limits for each course.

 

SUGGESTED PRICING (franchisees are free to tailor their own pricing policy with regard to the market they operate on)

  1. Master (120-hour) “unlimited”  - for the university and college level teachers ($ 340.00)
  2. Standard (60-hour) - for the middle and high school level teachers ($ 280.00)
  3. Junior (40-hour) - for the kindergarten level teacher ($ 190.00)
  4. Master waiver – Online ($ 225.00)
  5. Standard waiver – Online ($ 195.00)

Certificates and licenses are recognized worldwide.

 

As you may have noticed, the course is divided according to the assessment criteria to meet the job placement requirements. The more credit hours you have the higher qualification you claim. Although it is up to the employer's discretion to decide which category of qualification works better for his institution. In ESL world it counts which level you apply for - university, school or kindergarten. At list it should be that way, but frankly speaking it is not a commonplace when employers take into account this qualification grading and therefore, when hiring teachers they squeeze them into position whichever is vacant or which they deem necessary to fill in. Nothing's outstanding here and we take it for granted. However, when deciding on remuneration or salary packages, the certificate level speaks for itself. In most cases the qualification level turns out to be the priority to reach agreement on the salary issue. The 120 credit/hour background is the maximum credit one would need to acquire. Finally, the teacher who's accomplishments state maximum in educational background will always have advantage when there is a rivalry for the position. This is logical and inevitable even in other spheres.

 

Master Full has all the proof one needs to teach on any hierarchy of levels and will not need any "upgrades" if opportunity strikes for advancement. However, Standard and Junior courses might need the upgrading if the employer requires one. In most of the cases, employers, as I have already noted, do not pay much attention whether you have Master or Standard unless it comes to decide how much to pay. I think I was clear on this specific issue.

 

Let's turn to another question:  which one? Master Full or Master Waiver?

The basic difference between these grades lies in issuance of the LICENSE "on top" of the certificate. The TESOL license confirms that the holder of the certificate meets the INTERNATIONALLY accepted standards in teaching English and his/her qualification and professionalism leave no room for doubts. As far as 90% of ESL teachers work abroad, holding the license helps authorities in another country to decide the eligibility and preparedness for the job, particularly in granting employment-based visas or completing the work related red tape. In addition, the FULL package includes more tangible evidence of completing the training than the WAIVER one.
