Teacher Development Course for K12 English Teachers

Confidence in the Classroom

Facing a class of students can be a daunting experience, especially for a teacher new to the profession! Aimed at teachers in their first years of teaching, this entirely practical 20 hour course aims to equip teachers with the confidence to plan and deliver effective and creative lessons in the K12 teaching context. In addition to core areas of teaching such as presenting and practicing grammar and the four language skills, the course also addresses a range of topical themes such as critical thinking, creative adaptation of course books, and ways for spicing up your lessons.  

While the target audience is teachers who are in their first three years of teaching, the course is also suitable for:

  • final year undergraduate ELT students with an interest in teaching in a K12 school,
  • more experienced K12 teachers who are keen to refresh their skills,
  • teachers working in other teaching contexts who may wish to further their career in K12 schools.
