ESOL Outreach

Date: 29/04/2021 14:00 UK

Ideal if you are thinking about setting up TESOL/ESL outreach or English café, or a useful refresher if you are already involved but looking for new ideas or direction.  Great if you are keen to re-engage your church with ESOL teaching and support post-lockdown.


Interactive price: £20.00

Interactive: PC/Mac/tablet compatible. Work on our interactive platform. Good internet access required.


This is a great ‘how to’ starter course for Christians with a vision to reach internationals through English language teaching. 

Through some short, preparatory modules leading to a live Zoom workshop, you’ll discover ways to:

  • build a team to support ESOL teaching
  • get the whole church behind your ESOL outreach efforts
  • build relationships with learners beyond the classroom
  • make your ESOL outreach sustainable in the long-term while helping prevent burnout and overreach

Tutor-led, the helpful pre-modules will introduce case-studies and discussion points for you to consider before a live, tutor-led 1-hour Zoom discussion workshop. With our support, you’ll be encouraged to build a plan for your next steps with a focus on whole church outreach.

We are here for advice and feedback throughout your short course.

There is no final exam and you are graded by continuous assessment through the pre-session modules and attendance on the Zoom session. You’ll receive a certificate upon successful completion.

How this interactive Zoom course works

This course is ideal if you’ve got a good broadband connection so can work entirely online via a tablet/PC/Mac. You’ll complete interactive exercises, watch videos via YouTube before your live Zoom session with up to 8 other trainees, led by an expert trainer to help bring the subject to life. 

Meet your course tutor

This course is led by William Bradridge, Director of Studies at Global English TESOL. 
William has over 25 years' experience in the TESOL industry, in teaching English, managing language schools and developing teacher training programmes. Read more from William at the tutor profile on this page.  

Eligibility 

Open to native and non-native English speakers over 18 years old with a good level of spoken English. If you are a non-native English speaker, please see the course eligibility requirements on our FAQ page. Remember you can always ask us if you are not sure about your level of English. 

Course duration

This short course can easily be completed in a day, or over a few hours each evening. However, you have up to 60 days to complete it. 

What do I need to take part?

* A PC/laptop/iPad/tablet/phone with a webcam and microphone, and the ability to screen share.
* Headphones are preferred but not essential.
* You will need some basic Zoom competency, such as the ability to join the session, enable your camera/sound etc. Our short pre-sessional course is essential before the live Zoom class and will help you here, but it is your responsibility to be ready technically for the live session.

A prior TEFL/TESOL certificate is not needed for this course.

What about any tech problems on the day?

We know it happens occasionally. Hopefully, you will have worked through any major Zoom issues beforehand. On the day, if you have trouble getting online, get in touch. We will try to help, but we cannot guarantee support and you should consider that if you cannot connect to a session that is running successfully, you will have lost your place. We can transfer you to a new session upon payment of a £10 Spotlight transfer fee.

Everything you need to complete your course and gain your certificate is included in the one fee above. However, check out these optional extras:

Additional time course extensions available if you need to go beyond 60 days 

Global English printed and embossed certificate posted to you (£15 UK / £20 outside)

Resources from the course available as a FREE downloadable PDF from your student area

Discount on further Spotlight Live TESOL sessions or Global English online programmes

This five-hour short course on ESOL outreach contains approximately four hours of online material and video and a one hour Zoom seminar/workshop where you participate with a small group.
