The Trinity CertPT is an internationally accredited level 6 qualification for teachers seeking to update, improve and enrich their professional practice.

Course Information

The Trinity CertPT is for teachers seeking to update, improve and enrich their professional teaching practice. It draws upon qualified TESOL teachers’ existing knowledge of teaching practice and theory, while promoting the acquisition and refinement of the specialist skills needed to develop and use effective teaching resources.

The guided learning aspect can be tailored to suit your development needs, focusing on Young Learners, Pre-Primary Education or Communicative Language Teaching (CLT). Through our partners at NILE-ELT we can offer a wider range of specialisms, including Teacher-to-Trainer. We offer courses run and delivered by UKTA (minimum 5 people) or courses with our education partner NILE-ELT.

Each candidate must complete four written assessment tasks where they evaluate, adapt, create and reflect on the use of resources, informed by knowledge and insight.
