What our students say

Here's what some of our previous students had to say about our Trinity CertTESOL module:

"Just wanted to say how much I appreciate your efforts in getting us through the two years. It has been refreshing to see some actually amazing teachers and your help has been truly invaluable. Although I don't intend to pursue TESOL as a career like others from the group, I am going to take a module as part of my degree next year where I'll be going into secondary schools to observe and teach as part of an initiative to encourage curiosity for computing in young students.

I would have never considered this module pre-TESOL and the confidence, insight and knowledge gained from experiencing this course is something which I am thoroughly grateful for. I have no doubt that the hard work has been worthwhile and it has been an absolute pleasure to work with such an incredible team."
