What is the LTCL Diploma?

Trinity's DipTESOL is an an internationally respected, widely available qualification for teachers of ESOL/EFL with at least two years' full-time teaching experience.

Here are two of the reasons teachers commonly give for taking this qualification:

  • They are planning to work in a position or organization that requires a diploma-level qualification. Examples include academic management, teacher training or work within the higher education sector.
  • Having completed an initial certificate course and two years of ESOL teaching, they now feel they need to develop their skills and knowledge both for their own sake and so that they can support and guide less experienced colleagues.

The DipTESOL is regulated in England by Ofqual and registered at Level 7 on the Ofqual Regulated Qualifications Framework, the same level as master’s degrees and many other post-graduate qualifications. The DipTESOL is accepted by the British Council as a full English Language Teaching (or ‘TEFL’) qualification for teachers in its accredited teaching organisations in the UK and in its own teaching operations overseas. Having the DipTESOL enables holders to have roles such as examiners, teacher educators and centre managers/directors of studies.
