Trinity DipTESOL – An Overview

Course Review, Diploma, Oxford TEFL, Trinity DipTESOL, Uncategorized

In this podcast we talk about the Trinity DipTESOL, which is a diploma level qualification in Teaching English. We’ve invited Sinéad Laffan and Nicola Meldrum, two DipTESOL trainers, to give us an overview of the course, the assessment and the content. They also give some very useful tips for candidates and talk about why it is worth investing your time and money in this qualification.

  1. really glad you’re doing some podcasts on the Dip – I feel like it’s a bit underrated compared to the DELTA. I finished my Dip in 2014 – found it really rewarding and gave me loads of confidence in the classroom. It has also got me into materials writing, and contributing to ELT magazines a bit. The freedom I got when doing the action research really allowed me to find my path in the industry.

  2. This podcast (and those on the Delta) have come at a good time for me, as I’m in the process of deciding which one to do. I think I’m more likely to take the DipTESOL as the pronunciation and phonology aspects would be really useful in my job. I still have a couple of months before I do make a decision (as I’m currently working on the IH CAM course) so I’d be interested in seeing what other people have to say. Thanks for a great podcast series!

    1. Thanks, Martin! I did the DELTA and really enjoyed it, but the more I learn about DipTESOL, the more I might be inclined to take it. Like you, I think the emphasis on phonology on the Dip is important, and this is an aspect DELTA lacks.
