LTTC launches Level 6 TESOL Diploma in association with TQUK

Written by
London Teacher Training Collegeis delighted to confirm that after working in partnership with TQUK, the OFQUAL Regulated Level 6 Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (RQF) is now available to learners. Since 1984, LTTC has been providing TEFL courses to help thousands of teachers gain a recognised TEFL qualification from all over the world.

Based in South London, LTTC prides itself on the quality of its courses and the individual attention that it provides to every student who enrols with them. It is these qualities which were recognised by TQUK when LTTC were approved as a centre and when LTTC approached TQUK about the possibility of developing the Level 6 Diploma in TESOL, it was an obvious and easy decision to make. Along with being the first TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) provider that partnered with TQUK back in 2014, LTTC were the first TQUK recognised centre to be allowed to run regulated qualifications and Endorsed TEFL/TESOL programmes. Training Qualifications UK Managing Director Andrew Walker said: ‘We’re extremely pleased to have developed the Level 6 Diploma in TESOL with London Teacher Training College. They have an excellent track record for providing first class training and have been an exemplary centre of ours since they joined TQUK.’ ‘We pride ourselves on being able to adapt to centres needs and requirements quick and effectively, once LTTC approached us regarding the development of the TESOL Diploma, we jumped at the chance to get the course up and running.’ The mandatory units included within the qualification include language theory, language teaching methodology, classroom planning and organisation and linguistics and language teaching.

If you would like to learn more about the OFQUAL Regulated Level 6 Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (RQF), you can find information regarding the course via the London Teacher Training College, alternatively you can find the qualification specification and information sheet on the TQUK website.
