I think I remember a few people on DiS talking about wanting to do this course.
Groupon offering it for £65 today
Note: It doesn't actually give you any classroom experience, just a load of paperwork and questions and answers about how to do it, you don't get a particulaly recognised certificate and it sounds kinda shitty (an online teaching course with no teaching). Not worth quitting your job over it.
If you're thinking seriously about jacking the country in and moving abroad to teach, and £65 isn't too big an expense, maybe worth doing as preliminary thing that might make teaching a CELTA or DELTA (the proper certificates) a little easier
why I dont know, but at least it gives me something to do, and an option.
but, if you're going to end up with a PGCE in teaching anyway, is it actually a useful extra qualification?
...is the usual price really £300? That's more than most classroom based courses.
