Languages Training & Development is a specialist provider of teacher training courses and has been in operation since 1996. We specialise in securing funding from various sources, including government, to support our programmes allowing us to offer them at a highly subsidised rate. For example, our 5-week intensive Cert TESOL programme costs only £250 and our Diploma £520.
At present, we have access to the European Union's Erasmus Plus scheme. Our programmes therefore, include a supported training placement with our partners, Szent Laszlo Technincal School, based in Szekszard, Southern Hungary. This arrangement offers course participants the possibility to obtain experience with both our learners in the UK (mixed nationality / language adult learners)and younger learners in a monolingual environment in Hungary. All travel to Hungary and accommodation while there is covered by the EU funding and is accessible to all EU nationals and citizens of several other Erasmus Plus partner countries.
We also offer the opportunity for the supported work placement in Hungary to those who have recently undertaken the initial Certificates such as CELTA or Cert TESOL. You accompany one of our training groups to Hungary, where you will deliver some group and 1:1 teaching assisted by us in your planning. Participants find this an excellent way to ease them into teaching. As with our other programmes travel and accommodation are covered and there is a small bursary.
Programmes are run throughout the academic year and we can advise on accommodation for those attending from outside the area.

MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
Location: University of Hertfordshire, School of Humanities
Final Qualification: MA
The MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at the University of Hertfordshire is a one year programme for graduates in English, with little or no teaching experience who want an initial preparation course in English Language Teaching at post-graduate level.
The programme gives an in-depth introduction to the teaching of English and provides a strong practical foundation for future development. A practical teaching element is a central feature of the programme; students will participate in practice teaching sessions throughout their study period. It is a twelve month full-time programme.
The two taught semesters (Semester A & B) are examined by coursework and lead to a Post-Graduate Diploma in the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. These are followed by a dissertation in Semester C (June - September), successful completion of which will lead to an MA (TESOL).
The programme will cover the following areas:
- A practical introduction to the teaching of English
- A teaching and learning-focused study of the English Language, including grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, texts, and genre
- Study of the extent and range of uses of English
- Theoretical insights into how languages are learned
- Methods of English language teaching and practical teaching sessions including needs analysis, syllabus design and materials production and evaluation, incorporating use of technology and testing
- Research methods - preparation for research and dissertation
- Dissertation - which will involve some collection and analysis of data
