Teaching Diploma for Teaching License

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have nearly finished my BA in Tesol, unfortunately, halfway through I learned that this will only get me a temporary license and I need to do a post grad. teaching diploma;  I have found a provider named St. Roberts Group, I would like to know if they are approved by TCT, and how would one go about checking which schools are approved by TCT. I have looked through google, kind of feels like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Another thread is running on this topic. Can't link it properly with my mobile. Sorry.

To answer your question, there is no approval list. Will the diploma get you a teaching license along with 1.5 years at a current school + 3-5 teachers including the director that will sign on your behalf. Yes, at the moment it's possible. 1.5-2 years from now when you have your paperwork sorted. Who knows.

I had some contact with Khurusapha (TCT) recently, and they claimed that the diploma you get from St Roberts is good enough to get a teacher license. The woman I talked to also said there were no guarantees, since they are changing the rules all the time (what a surprise).

 

I also called St Roberts, and they indicated that you can get a temporary teacher license during the course if you can show TCT that you are enrolled in a program that will let you apply for a license. In other words, you can work while studying. Can this be true?

 

Btw, the TCT almost never answers your calls. They also don't reply if you send them an email. That's my impression, anyway.

 

Cheers

I forgot to mention the number of work permits you're allowed to have without a teacher license. TCT claimed three during a period of six years. Correct?

You could consider Uni of Nottingham via online. They have a dip ed that will enable you to get a license. They also have a Masters in Ed.

It is the labour office that issues a Work Permit, not the TCT. The TCT issues waivers for the teaching license, allowing you to teach and get a work permit. 

The maximum number of waivers is indeed 3, but more is not uncommon. The registration is not that good at the TCT and they also consider things as if you are really trying to get certified.

I'm not at all certain either of these programs will work. I think the only budget option is St Babbitt's.

 

Honestly, it's all a crapshoot until you get your license in hand. That's not comforting I know.
