180 hour Level 5 TEFL Diploma

Modules One-Three:

Module One: Principles of Teaching English Grammar

You know how to use English grammar innately, but we’ll teach you the terminology and how to pass it on.

By the end of this module, you’ll know your present continuous from your present simple tense no problem. Most of all, you’ll be familiar and confident with grammatical terms. This module will improve your understanding of basic grammar and give you the knowledge you’ll need to communicate complicated language rules to your students. We know that grammar can be intimidating for new teachers – it won’t be at the end of module 1!

Guided learning: 32 hrs

Module Two: How to Teach English Vocabulary

Did you know that there are around 171,000 words in the English language? Don’t worry, you’ll only be asked to teach a few hundred of those! You’ll study the tools to teach vocabulary and use them effectively so that your students can use it in the right context.  These include; how to integrate dictionary use, designing tests for vocab learning and strategies to maintain vocabulary usage, in other words, finding settings to practice learned language in. From beginner restaurant vocab like, MENU, PLATE, GLASS, MAINS to advanced business such as, INCOME, EXPENDITURE, RECRUITMENT. It’s all about practice.

Guided learning: 15 hrs

Module Three: The Principles of Learners’ Needs and Teaching Methodologies

When you arrive at this module, you’ll know the nuts and bolts of what makes up the English language. Now you are going to learn how to present it, so that your students can learn easily and effectively. You’ll learn the importance of understanding WHY your learners are studying English to ensure that your students’ learning objectives are met. When you complete module three, you’ll know the most commonly used methods of teaching English as a foreign language.

Guided learning: 14 hrs

Modules Four-Six:

Module Four: How to Teach Reading & Listening Skills

These are called ‘receptive skills’ because the student is receiving language. By the end of this lesson, you’ll know the most effective ways to engage students in reading English and how to comprehend what they listen to accurately. This includes setting listening tasks to music, radio and recordings, to skimming and scanning letters, emails, Facebook posts both inside and outside the classroom. Oh yes, you’ll be setting a lots of homework for your students!

Guided learning: 17 hrs

Guided learning: 18 hrs

Module Six: How to Teach Pronunciation & Phonology

Help your students speak English confidently by practicing pronunciation. This is the primary reason that they want to learn English from you. As a fluent English speaker pronouncing a word like ‘enough’ is simple for you, not so with many other nationalities. But how do you help students whose mother tongue doesn’t even have sounds that can be found in the English language? We’ll show you that. By the end of this module you’ll have mastered modern techniques to help your students sound as fluent as possible. They will converse with the pronunciation that you have taught them with assurance and that’s always a good feeling for you as their teacher!

Guided learning: 16 hrs

Think: Podcasts, videos and flashcards. TikTok, YouTube and Facebook. Newsfeeds, Buzzfeed and Spotify. But how can you use these resources effectively without drowning in content?

This will make your job as a creative teacher much simpler and will help you create compelling, relevant and useful lessons either online or in the classroom.

Guided learning: 17 hrs

Preparation is key to all successful English lessons. In this module you’ll become skilled in designing engaging lesson plans and adapting lessons naturally in the classroom.

Questions and Answers

What does Level 5 mean?

A Level 5 TEFL course under the regulated qualifications framework (RQF) developed and put in place by Ofqual, is equivalent to a CELTA, diploma or higher education (DipHE), foundation degree, or Level 5 NVQ. 

Obtaining a Level 5 TEFL qualification means you’ll be awarded an English government regulated teaching certificate.

Is it better to complete a Level 5 TEFL course?

Yes, you will qualify for more jobs and higher pay. A Level 5 qualification is the level below a bachelor’s degree so it sits high up on the Regulated Qualifications Framework. 

By completing a Level 5 TEFL course, you’d get a higher level qualification than most TEFL courses offer.

Why take this course instead of CELTA?

A CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Adults) course is typically completed over a 4-week full-time study schedule. It costs around $2,000 / £1,500 and is aimed at educating adults.

So, if you want to learn about teaching younger learners too, have a flexible study schedule and pay a fraction of that price – an online Level 5 regulated TEFL course is a winner!

How long does it take to complete the course?

Most learners complete this course in 6 – 10 weeks, depending on how much time you dedicate to your coursework.

You will have 6 months of study time access from the day that you enroll and can add more time if you run out.

What does it mean for a course to be regulated?

Regulated courses are officially recognized by the English government; the award sits on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualifications.

What’s Ofqual stand for?

Ofqual stands for Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation. It regulates qualifications, exams, and assessments in England and vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland.

What’s the difference between accredited and regulated TEFL courses?

In the simplest terms, TEFL training organizations are accredited and the qualifications they provide are regulated. When choosing the TEFL course that’s right for your unique plans, it’s important to pick an organization that is accredited, and that gives you the opportunity to complete a Government-regulated course.

Should I do a Level 5 TEFL course?

There are many ways to become a TEFL teacher and be certified to teach English. Deciding whether or not to take a Level 5 TEFL course will depend on a number of factors. 

These include how long you’d like to teach English for, where you’d like to teach (at home, online, or abroad), how dedicated you are to TEFL teacher training, how quickly you’d like to be qualified, how much time you have to dedicate to your studies, your level of English (native or fluent) and so on. Taking an English level test can help you discover if a Level 5 course is for you.

I completed the Level 5 TEFL Diploma a week ago, and I'd like to express my gratitude to Premier TEFL for providing this excellent... opportunity and helping me achieve my dream of obtaining this certificate. I would recommend this course not only to new teachers but also to experienced ones because, even after teaching English for 12 years, I learned new things. What I really liked about the course is that it was well-structured, and I had six months to complete it at my own pace without getting overwhelmed. If you're working and studying at the same time, it's the best option.Special thanks to Laura Graham for resolving all the doubts about the course on Discord, to Jacob Thomas for providing informative feedback about the progress, and to Rachel Walsh who sent me a certificate and made sure that my address to send a hard copy of the certificate is correct.read more
