Specialized TESOL courses are tailored programs designed to enhance specific teaching skills and increase employability in various niches of English language teaching. These include the Certificate in Teaching English to Young Learners (CTEYL), the Certificate in Teaching Business English (CTBE), and the Certificate in Teaching English Online (CTEO). Each course focuses on a unique aspect of TESOL education, equipping educators with targeted expertise. The CTEYL specializes in techniques for young learners, the CTBE focuses on business English, and the CTEO prepares instructors for the digital realm of teaching English online.

Our specialized courses are specifically designed to build on the topics that are covered in a standard TESOL certification course so an existing TESOL certification is usually necessary. If you already have extensive experience in English language teaching then exceptions to this rule may be granted. However, if you do not have an existing qualification, we are currently offering our CTEYL or CTBE course for free when you sign up for our 120-hour TESOL certification course with tutor support.
All of our specialized courses are completed entirely online and all necessary materials are accessed via our online training system.
These online courses are divided into six individual units that you can work on one at a time. After each unit you will complete an assessment via a short online test. Once all six units and their corresponding tests are successfully completed, you then complete the course by submitting a summative task for assessment. Upon completion of all sections of the course, you will receive your CTEYL, CTBE, or CTEO certification.
If you are in a real hurry it is theoretically possible to complete these courses in as little as one week, however, the average completion time is around three to five weeks. The maximum time frame for these courses is six months.
