Course Details

The TSL Practicum is optional; however, certification students seeking TESL Canada Professional Certificates must successfully complete the teaching practicum.

The Calgary based practicum consists of 10 hours of classroom observation followed by 10 hours of supervised classroom teaching. You must have completed all four Level 1 certificate courses before starting the practicum. The 20 hours of observation and teaching are completed during the day (Monday to Friday) or part-time in the evening in our English Language Program or Part-time ESL program. You will meet with the Program Administrator and the Sponsor Teacher to determine a schedule. Observing or teaching sessions are usually completed in 1 hour sessions over the duration of the 10-week course. Practicum placements are limited so please register early!

Registration must take place a minimum of two weeks prior to the start of the practicum.
