SEELS offers world-class training and curriculum materials

We are delighted that all our TESOL courses have been accredited as high-quality courses by ACCREDITAT. ACCREDITAT is a leading, independent United Kingdom accreditation body. Their accreditation confirms that our course, tutors, assessment instruments and our company procedures are world-class, fully geared to help teachers succeed.

Our aim has been to make our courses as practical as possible for you. For us, practical insights and tips are more important than theory. Of course, theory underpins some aspects of teaching but, when you start Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), it’s these kinds of questions that will be in the forefront of your mind:

    • How do I plan a lesson?
    • When should I do this?
    • What should I do next?
    • How can I introduce this?
    • How do I know my students have grasped this?
    • What should I be focusing on?
    • How can I do this better?

Remember that much of the theory in learning is not proven. In any case, you will be dealing with individuals from different childhood backgrounds, different learning experiences, different learning styles, different attitudes and different levels of motivation, so the theory will not apply to everyone. Our approach focuses on what does work in practice.

We have twelve years of English teacher training experience. SEELS’ early years of formation is traceable from May 26-29, 2006 when the first training of the Community and Home-Based English Teaching or CHOBET was initiated. We have come a long way since then. Watch the Video

Job placement and self-employment opportunities are an integral part of our OBE-TESOL Professional License and International Certification. We are in partnership with a job placement agency, Enclave Japan, who will assist our students in preparing their job application and will help them all the way until they are hired.

Let’s not forget our world-class faculty! Our teachers have Doctorate and Master degrees. Others are those former students of SEELS Teachers Academy who have successfully completed their courses with distinction, demonstrating exceptional performance and great passion to teach and train.
