Are online teacher training courses valuable?

11 Oct

The introduction of online teacher training courses have rendered it more accessible to people with hectic schedules and also those staying in remote places and others reluctant to invest time and money in commuting. But a lot of people are still reluctant to sign up for these online teacher training courses in the fear that they do not hold any value and credibility in the market.


Teacher training courses like the prestigious TESOL program and the TEFL Certificate course are available in onsite as well as online modes. But with the videos and speaking options available in the onsite courses, one can get the classroom feel and do the course sitting back at home and avoid the hazards of traveling. Assistance is provided to all the trainees of online teacher training courses through voice and chat facilities available on the internet. Moreover, the word ‘online’ is not specified on the certification and hence, the online teacher training course has the same value and accreditation as their onsite counterparts.

The TEFL Certification and the TESOL program are the most sought after online teacher training course because they are recognized and accredited worldwide. The TEFL (Teaching English as Foreign Language) Certificate Course is apt for teaching English to young learners and familiarizes teachers with child psyche. This course trains a teacher on teaching the basic language skills namely listening, speaking, reading and writing. The TEFL Certificate Course trains a teacher to make tailored training sessions understandable to the young learners and to execute lessons in a participatory nature helping in retention of knowledge.

The TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages or Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) Program is designed for teachers interested in acquiring knowledge about teaching both young learners and adults. The TESOL Program is an advanced course detailing the know-how of teaching language such as grammar and phonology. It trains a teacher to plan customized lessons for people coming from different age groups, linguistic, regional and cultural backgrounds.

These courses are available in both online and onsite modes and both have equal value and credibility in the market.
