Broaden your knowledge of teaching methodology and English language teaching techniques, while also extending your own English skills. We welcome applications from those working in primary, secondary, tertiary and higher education.
The course is designed to enhance your confidence in teaching in English, and encourage you to try out new approaches. You'll benefit from expert guidance and feedback throughout.
We'll explore a range of different teaching methodologies and approaches, and think about how these can best be applied to students' own professional roles. You’ll examine new approaches in a hands-on style, including flipped classrooms, effective use of technology and blended learning.
To provide you with practical hands on teaching, you’ll participate in micro and peer teaching practice and feedback, observations and presentations. You’ll be expected to discuss your work and will receive feedback in a supportive environment.
You'll study for 22 hours a week, with a mixture of training sessions, class observations and visits to educational establishments. You’ll also attend interactive workshops and seminars and have access to an online classroom.
During the course you’ll have the opportunity to build up a portfolio of all the training sessions and online materials to use when you return home.
As you develop your language skills during the course, there may be some additional classroom-based language development sessions. These will help extend your skills in contemporary vocabulary and grammar, pronunciation, fluency and receptive skills to build up your confidence in communicating and teaching in English.
You’ll also have the opportunity to practice your English skills on our social programme, which includes weekly day trips to popular cultural attractions.
