What the world has seen in the past months is unlike anything that we have encountered in our lifetime. The sudden and unexpected coming of the COVID19 virus highlighted the global infrastructure system’s inadequacies and shortcomings. Everything from the healthcare, banking, food, travel, educational systems were severely affected, impacting us all as a global community.
One aspect of our daily life that was badly impacted was our children’s education. Many of our children could not go to school and receive the ever-important education they need for the future. Many parents, family members, guardians were inconvenienced as they had to either go into isolation with their children, find alternative care while they were at work or find something to do with their children’s suddenly free schedules. However, with this came a big opportunity for qualified and certified TEFL teachers to help with these issues by providing important educational services while maintaining social distancing guidelines. In fact, remote or online teaching is looking to be the new norm for many children around the world, but let’s look at how your Trinity College CertTESOL certificate degree can help you find work during this time of crisis and at the same time give something back to the global community.
Certified and qualified to teach an important skill
When it comes to online or remote English-language teaching, no other qualification is as recognised and accepted as the gold standard Trinity College CertTESOL certificate. The Trinity College CertTESOL certificate, a British Council recognised, and accepted certificate literally stands above the rest. It will tell language schools that you are qualified, certified, and well trained to take on their clients. They will know that with your knowhow, English language teaching skills and CertTESOL certificate, you will be the ideal English teacher to help their ELLs (English language learners). With your gold standard Trinity College CertTESOL certificate and work experience? I leave you to be the judge of what the TEFL future has in store for you.
Online teaching follows social distancing
Many ELLs are unable to attend their English classes in schools or private language academies. Online or remote English teaching removes the need of a classroom environment and enables the ELL to learn while maintaining social distancing. Online or remote English language teaching can help ELLs learn in the safety and comfort of their homes. This type of teaching is also good for English teachers as it cuts out the travel, the exposure to the virus and the expense incurred in moving from one school to the other.
People want to learn new skills
With COVID 19 leaving many global citizens both out of work and stuck inside their homes until the pandemic subsides, many have turned this extra time into learning a new skill. This new skill can help them find better work, can help them acquire a skill that will help them travel the world or also to keep them from the mundanity of being stuck at home. This means that there are more people than ever looking for good English teachers who can teach English remotely or online. Language schools or private students choose a teacher primarily on their certification, qualifications, and work experience. The Trinity College CertTESOL is a global name for excellence in TEFL and TESOL and the name will speak strongly for itself at interview time.
Preparing for “the new future”
How education is provided will need to be more flexible while making sure the students are safe and healthy while they learn. Many schools, educational organisations, language academies, private students will be looking to those teachers who are qualified to teach the but also are not restricted to being physically present to teach. The principles behind the Online Trinity College CertTESOL certificate course mean that the knowledge acquired must be applicable to both online and face to face learning and can be used interchangeably. Teachers who have a Trinity College CertTESOL certificate, are trained to teach online and face to face and therefore will be better suited for new distance teaching roles.
COVID-19 has proven that we were previously educating our students in an environment that could prove to be unsafe. As a global community, we are now paying the price for not having enough teachers trained to teach online to keep our learners safe and well educated as well. There has never been a better time to invest in your Trinity College CertTESOL certificate to jumpstart your teaching career or add an additional skill to complement your existing skill base. There are many schools asking for this complementary skill so getting TEFL trained now is an obvious choice.
Many schools are forced to close which has led to a big demand for TEFL teachers to teach remote or online. This has created a unique opportunity for certified and qualified TEFL teachers to earn money during the pandemic through TEFL. Many Online companies do not have enough qualified and certified teachers to cope with the current demand for online English teaching.
