The Professional Teacher Development Course builds on the knowledge and teaching experience that new teachers will have already obtained from completing a 120+ hour practical TEFL course.

This course is designed to combine advanced teaching instruction with the opportunity to share classroom experiences in a supportive and collaborative atmosphere. As well as lots of interaction on a peer-to-peer basis, there will also be experienced English teachers available for discussion and feedback.

To preserve the high quality of this course, we restrict enrolment to no more than 10 students at a time.

Course Format

The 20-hour per week required course time is divided between input sessions at the school, regular assignments and language awareness tasks.

Four general modules cover technique, methodology, language acquisition and language awareness. For each module you will complete a series of reflective evaluations and critiques, create materials and lesson plans, and also keep a teaching journal.

These tasks and corresponding instruction will help to become a critically aware and confident teacher. In addition, all students will maintain a personal portfolio.
