TESOL

Open up career opportunities both within Australia and overseas with a Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) course. Get the skills you need to teach language and literacy to students from a non-English speaking background. 

Study TESOL

Our Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) courses will equip you with the technical and practical skills required to teach language and literacy to students from a non-English speaking background.

A qualification in TESOL can open up a number of career opportunities both in Australia and overseas. Learn how to design a syllabus and confidently teach spelling, grammar, pronunciation, reading, and writing to students from a non-English speaking background. With Australia’s migrant population continuously increasing, qualified TESOL teachers are always in demand. Employers are looking for qualified candidates who are caring, work well in a team, and can communicate clearly with people from diverse backgrounds.

As a TESOL student at TAFE Queensland you'll learn from expert educators who have a high degree of technical skills and knowledge. In 2022 our TESOL courses were recognised by the NEAS (National English Language Teaching Accreditation Scheme), with the NEAS tick recognising high quality education and training.
