Course summary

Not only will successful completion of the course give you a dual qualification that will allow you to apply for positions overseas or in the UK as an English Language teacher, but you should also receive a thorough grounding in English language and linguistics, developing your critical thinking, analytical, written and spoken communication skills, which are vital in almost any career. Depending on the optional modules you choose, you can specialise in teaching English for academic purposes (EAP) or teaching young learners, at primary and secondary school level. You will also learn about ‘online’ language teaching and have opportunities to practise using a range of applications that enable this.You’ll be taught by staff with many years of experience in the field of language teaching and teacher training, who themselves have taught in Spain, Greece, Poland, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Turkey, Russia – and more – and the UK.There are opportunities throughout your study to gain authentic experience of teaching learners of English. A large component of the assessment in Year Two is centred on teaching practice with learners attending specially arranged classes at the University. Also in Year Two you will have the chance to try teaching online, and in Year Three you have the opportunity to teach EAP – English for academic purposes – to international students studying at Coventry University. You can also apply for a year’s work placement for an optional enhancement year, which has led previous students to work as English teachers with the British Council in Spain and France or at partner universities in China, for example.Key course benefits;* Recognized teaching qualification may be gained by the end of the second year: Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) or the Cambridge Assessment English accredited Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT)* A selection of modules are available via the Add+Vantage module programme which will allow you to volunteer in schools to gain experience as a teaching assistant.* Current significant links with a wide variety of employers such as secondary schools, magazines, newspapers and local charities, many of whom may offer professional experience opportunities.* Opportunity to apply for a work placement*, which has led previous students to experiences such as English subject mentors at Cardinal Newman School and Grace Academy in Coventry, a marketing and events social media and newsletter editor at the Coventry Irish Society, an editorial intern at Grazia Magazine, a freelance journalist at Coventry News and Sport, and English teachers at partner universities in Spain and China.* Field trips, which in the past have included a visit to the Language Show Live in London in October – currently Europe’s biggest exhibition for language education and language service providers.
