Assessment 


The course is structured by a series of tasks that address the various aspects of each unit. These tasks will be completed and assessed as you progress through the course. Your trainer will give you guidance on how to complete the assessment tasks and also provide you with feedback on your assessment tasks throughout the course.

 

​Unless a special exemption applies, all LTi TESOL Course students are required to submit their assessment via the LTi TESOL On-line Student System (TOSS).

You need to be assessed as competent in all of the assessment tasks in order to be awarded your qualification.
