Why a TESL diploma?   

There are many excellent teachers out there who don’t have formal training. There are many community workers and volunteers serving immigrants that may want to get into teaching ESL. And there’s a growing need for ESL classes throughout the province as immigration numbers swing back to pre-covid levels and higher. 


We’re flexible, supportive and well-regarded. You can read all about it on our website! CCLCS has been around for 30 years and have trained thousands of teachers. And as an IRCC-funded LINC school, we understand the realities of teaching ESL.

What do our graduates say?

The instructors were well-versed, accommodating, and supportive. I took both certifications (TESL Canada and TESL Ontario) and I am so happy that I did! Being able to observe and do our practicums in LINC classrooms has been a game changer.” Anuba T.

My training at CCLCS was excellent in my opinion. The Instructors were all very welcoming, helpful, and supportive. The feedback received was always done in a thoughtful and constructive manner and was extremely pointed and clear to assist in personal improvement. Also, the administration was always responsive and courteous with any questions and/or concerns.” Felipe F.

I completed the TESL Canada certification a few years back, and am in the process of completing TESL Ontario now. TESL Canada provided an amazing foundation to begin working as a language teacher – I’ve been able to succeed over the past few years in part because of the lessons and techniques that were shown. Thanks to your wonderful team of teachers and the admin staff who made this process as painless as possible!” Alex Rogers
