Workshops

Online International TEFL/TESOL 180 & Continual Professional Development in Teacher Training 

Each workshop is online via Zoom or can be face-to-face and is led by an internationally recognized instructor.

Each student receives study material in the form of a PDF, tasks, quizzes, feedback, and a certificate upon completion. These workshops  are interactive  and participants have the opportunity to communicate with other teachers worldwide.  If the teacher completes all 12 modules, they get a TEFL/TESOL 180 Certificate which allows them to teach anywhere around the world.

Each workshop is 2 hours in duration. 

There are a total of 12 online or face-to-face workshops.

As soon as I walked into CA Institute, I immediately felt like I was making the right decision. Everyone was incredibly supportive, helpful and beyond knowledgeable on the subject.  The TEFL/TESOL 180 teacher training certification course helped me grow professionally and personally. My favourite part of the course was the practical approach to teaching and the practicum. The number of practice teaching hours for each participating trainee set this course apart from other similar certificate courses. I am a hands-on learner and this allowed me to gain the experience and knowledge I needed to boost my confidence. It made me feel extremely comfortable with EFL students of all ages and levels. The daily feedback of my peers and teachers helped me advance rapidly. From day one, I felt as though I was absorbing information that was going to benefit me in the future as an ESL teacher … and I was! I am currently living in Brno and teaching ESL, mainly young learners at CA Institute. I still use what I learned in our TEFL course almost daily in my classroom. This course was definitely a great idea and I highly recommend it!
