Why this course?

This course is designed for Christian TEFL trainees and those engaged in TEFL or ESOL for outreach. 

If you want to discover how to better manage classes where students present with different levels of ability, this short course will give you lots of practical suggestions and ideas.

On this short programme, we look at strategies we can use to vary materials, so that we can keep every student engaged while working as a group. There are section on how we differentiate aims for different learners within the classroom and then how we plan our lessons to be effective, making sure no learner gets left behind.

We will also look at materials and how to tailor a specific piece of material for different levels, then strategies for keeping our more advanced learners challenged, while we give further support to those who need more help.

This course is aimed at class-based learning, but the skills and techniques we cover are equally valid if you are teaching a group on Skype or Zoom as well.

We are sure you will find this course helpful in your everyday teaching, whether you are teaching adults or younger learners. Practical and full of advice, it’s been developed and produced by members of the Global English TESOL team, who have varied and wide-ranging experience in the ELT field.

Your course will take you step-by-step through short, pre-session modules, followed by a one hour Zoom session with your course tutor and a maximum of 7 other trainees. In that session you'll have the opportunity to present a differentiated learning task to your peers in a small group setting. There is also a personal tutor on hand for advice and for feedback.

No final exam, as you are graded on your marks across the modules so you will always know how you are progressing.  A PDF certificate in Teaching Mixed Ability Classes is available on successful completion.

We've made this course as flexible and easy for you to access as possible. 

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 and participate with others in a Zoom session, which helps bring the subject to life.

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, or take a test of your English here.   

As this is a course aimed at assisting Christians in English outreach, the Zoom course session will start with a introduction to who we all are and a short time of prayer.

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 TEFL certificate is not needed for this course, although some experience of teaching groups would be useful beforehand.

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 an 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 Teaching Mixed Ability EFL/ESOL classes contains approximately four hours of online material and video and a one hour Zoom seminar where you participate with a small group.
