Inspiring future teachers North Shore Language School has been operat- ing for nine years. In addition to offering English classes, the school conducts courses in teacher training to achieve the TESOL qualification (Teaching Speakers of Other Languages Level 4) -- popular with beginning teachers and with quali- fied teachers who'd like to develop further skills in teaching. Director of Studies Ali- son Rankine says: We are proud of the support- ive and friendly atmos- phere of the school. We are fully focused on helping our students reach their goals. The TESOL course is designed to give all trainees many oppor- tunities to gradually develop and practice their skills and this allows the trainees to experience high levels of achievement. We believe that all students can develop wonderful teach- ing skills and we aim to inspire them to pursue teaching as their career.'' During the course, trainees study teaching theory and they also get practice opportunities. All of the theory is closely linked to practical sessions in which the trainees can plan and teach lessons to English language learners. The trainees have a lot of fun in these teaching sessions and enjoy seeing their teaching abilities develop; also being able to work with English language learners from many countries around the world. Graduating students have stated that they have developed a passion for teaching during their TESOL course and that it has given them the confi- dence to consider teach- ing as a career. The trainees are also prepared for the Cam- bridge University Teach- ing Knowledge Test (TKT). They learn the theory and participate in practice tests to ensure they are very familiar with both the content and the layout of the three core modules of the TKT. This qualification is well-recognised inter- nationally. All the North Shore Language TESOL trainees who have sat this test have achieved very high grades -- and many have achieved the highest grades that are possible (Grade 4). Graduating TESOL students have been able to pursue their teaching careers, some going into direct employment as English language tutors. Others use it as a step- ping stone into univer- sity to do a degree in Teaching in ECE, Pri- mary and Secondary education. Some students plan to travel overseas and teach English in other countries. North Shore Language School is located at 122 Wairau Rd Glenfield, phone 442-4500. Students loans and allowances available. www.nsls.ac.nz.
