    About Trinity

    EfA represents Trinity College London's ESOL and Drama offering in HK, Macao and China.

Trinity College London is a leading international exam board and independent education charity that has been providing assessments and qualifications around the world since 1877. Trinity specialises in assessment of communicative and performance skills covering music, drama, combined arts and English language. 

With over 850,000 candidates a year in more than 60 countries worldwide, Trinity qualifications are specifically designed to help students and teachers progress and develop the skills needed for work, study and life. 

At the heart of Trinity’s work is the support provided for teachers, both in terms of specific support for teachers preparing candidates for our exams, and more general teacher development. Trinity’s work with teachers is supported by a growing international network of relationships with key education institutions. This ensures that Trinity teachers have access to the best professional development available.

Our TESOL trainers are all members of Trinity's regional Professional Support Team, receiving regular training from Trinity's senior academics and providing Trinity teacher support to local schools and organisations.

Recognition and trust

Trinity’s TESOL qualifications are listed on the UK Ofqual qualifications framework and, as such, are recognised in the UK and internationally.

Trinity’s teacher training qualifications are among the most widely recognised and respected in their field. 

All Trinity programmes go through a rigorous development process during which all aspects of the course are scrutinised by Trinity’s validation review panel, negotiated with the course provider and discussed constructively and in detail during a validation visit by Trinity. 

Every Trinity qualification is independently moderated by Trinity representatives. This means that the quality of the training you’ll receive meets the highest of standards. As a result, over the years, the Trinity stamp of approval has come to be trusted by TEFL employers everywhere.
