6-week TESOL Internship programs are also available for TESOL Seminar graduates who have also completed a Discipleship Training School with Youth With A Mission. (Enquire specifically about this in your application).
Graduates from the TESOL seminar are invited to join staff with YWAM Perth to work with our English for Missions program; to participate in English Teaching ministry in the Perth city area; to join staff of the TESOL seminar; or to join / pioneer a church-planting team, teaching English overseas.
