In order to pass a UK-TEFL course, you will be assessed during your course by your trainer. This is a practical assessment, where you will participate in group teaching practices which are designed to allow you to test what you have learnt in order to reinforce your understanding.
You will be assessed by your trainer to ensure you meet measured learning outcomes on completion on your course. To allow for progression during the course, your final teaching practice will be the one that counts towards you passing the course. You must demonstrate all of the following elements:
Use of target language
Encouraging high student talk time
Fun and engaging lesson
Flow of lesson from one activity to the next
Maintaining a positive learning atmosphere
Achievement of the main lesson objectives
Lesson organised effectively
Clarity of handouts, pictures and board work.
How are the UK-TEFL certificates awarded?
UK-TEFL qualifications are awarded on a pass/fail basis.
Can I fail the course?
It is possible, although the majority of students pass. In order to pass you must demonstrate evidence of the units above. The most common reasons for not passing the course at attendance level are an insufficient level of English or not being able to stand up and teach in front of a class.
What qualification will I get?
On successful completion of the course you will receive a certificate issued directly by NCFE who are a national awarding organisation. The courses have been accredited to an equivalent QCF level of 2 for 2/3 day standard courses and 3 for an advanced course.
