Online TCE 1 Course

The TCE 1 Course is for both those who aren’t sure how to start working with children and for those who have been working with children for a long time. Those of you who desire to teach children more effectively from God’s word.

This course offers you biblically based teaching for your ministry among children. We will look at how we can teach the gospel to children on their level of understanding. We will share proven methods and ideas to make your children’s programme attractive and interactive so that the children will enjoy learning from God’s word. You will have the opportunity to learn from experienced teachers and put into practice what you have learned through practical assignments and evaluation.

This course is divided into modules where you can choose to do module 1 (4 weeks), module 1 and 2 (7 weeks) or all 3 modules (12 weeks). This is so you can be flexible when working around other commitments. It also means that you can pick up modules at a later stage. The TCE2 course offers modules 4, 5 and 6. However, is it required that you are able to join most of the classes on Zoom and complete the practical homework for each module. When all 3 modules of TCE 1 are complete you will receive a certificate. Likewise for the TCE2 course.
