The 250-hour TESOL Diploma from Ontesol is recognized at a higher level than CELTA or any 4-week TESOL certification program. Those who complete a 20-hour Practicum after the online TESOL program are eligible for TESL Canada Standard 2 accreditation, which is highly recognized for teaching English in Canada, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Australia, and all of Europe.
The 250-hour program by Ontesol offers a very comprehensive curriculum for new teachers who wish to get the best level of training from the very beginning and experienced teachers who wish to upgrade their qualifications.
Trainees study online for a period of 6 months with assistance from a professional teacher trainer who is registered by Ontesol at the TESL Canada federation. Teacher trainers have MA degrees in Education and/or TESOL, more than 5 years of experience as teacher trainers, and an average of 15 years as ESL teachers.
The online method of study offers flexibility to those who are currently teaching and cannot take an intensive 4-week TESOL course.
