How is the course assessed?

Clear guidance is given at the start of the course as to how your written and practical work is to be assessed. All Trinity validated courses are visited at the end of the course by an independent moderator appointed and trained by Trinity. The moderator talks to all trainees in groups and then individually.

All trainees are interviewed by the moderator for a period of 15 minutes to discuss their work for the Materials Assignment (Unit 4). The moderator assessed them as Pass or Refer on this unit. Trainees are well prepared for this interview and rehearsals are timetabled.

Moderators also read a representative sample of all written work by trainees, including journals for teaching practice, guided observation, unknown language and the learner profile and the language awareness assignment (grammar and phonology).


All successful candidates will be awarded a certificate from Trinity on completion of the accredited TESOL Certificate course. In addition, APP will award grades of Distinction, Merit and Pass for Teaching Practice.
