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.
