TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language)/TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is gaining traction in India at a rapid pace. Teachers, aspiring or professional, are now looking to do TEFL courses because of the edge they provide in terms of career choices. In fact, IB schools (schools with International Boards), ICSE and CBSE schools nowadays are preferring TEFL qualified teachers.
India speaks over 1000 languages, but English remains one of the most used languages in the country. In fact, it is one of the two languages allowed by the Constitution of India for business in Parliament. India is an inclusive country, and the English language provides a lingual canopy for people with different cultural backgrounds to come together and intercommunicate. Not only is the presence of English language in India rooted in its history, but it continues to permeate the fabric of modern Indian culture. Schools in India place high importance on being ‘English-medium’, which means that the medium of instruction in such schools is English. A TEFL certification then helps open doors for you in a country like India. Especially, if you have a certificate in Young Learners Teacher Training, which is offered by London College of Teachers as a TEFL specialization.
TEFL certification helps to widen the professional prospects of teachers across India. Not only is there a demand for English teachers across the country in regular schools and international schools, but there’s also a huge demand for language instructors. Language instructors are language trainers hired by various organizations to hone their employees’ communication skills. Since English is used very heavily in professional and commercial areas, TEFL certified teachers will find themselves at an advantage when applying for such jobs. A TEFL/TESOL certified teacher can also become a soft-skill trainer, which is increasingly becoming prevalent in India. BETT (Business English Teacher Training), offered by London College of Teachers and Trainers, is one such TEFL specialization that trains teachers on how to teach business or professional English.
