The Language Training for Employment (LTE) programs, such as Occupation-specific Language Training, has created an increasing need for qualified instructors with the knowledge and experience to teach the specific language and communication needs of immigrants preparing to enter the Canadian work force.
This certificate is designed around four components identified as key to LTE teaching: language, building on teaching skills gained in initial TESL training, as well as ESL instructors’ expertise and experience; context, situated in the areas of job preparation and specialized job search, reflecting the primary motivation and goals of learners in an LTE course; content, grounded in the workplace focus of LTE and the backgrounds of the learners; and culture, including both general Canadian workplace and sector-specific cultural norms, behaviours and practices.
The Post Teaching English as a Second Language Training for Employment 25-hour certificate course is intended for experienced English as a Second Language (ESL) instructors. It builds on their professional classroom skills and knowledge with training specific to the instructional context of employment-related programs such as Occupation-specific Language Training, Enhanced Language Training (ELT), English for Nursing and Business English.
