Course Description

This 12 week course part-time course is taught by highly qualified and experienced trainers provides candidates with a practical grounding in teaching techniques and methodology through a combination of instruction, observation and extensive supervised teaching practice.

The course involves over 120 contact hours and includes six hours of observed teaching practice with English language students.

The class size is limited to 12 participants, which helps to create a friendly and personal atmosphere. Each day consists of input sessions and teaching practice. Please note that during the summer months trainee numbers may be increased to 15 trainees per course.

The first two weeks of the part time course is all input. After that, the evening sessions cover Teaching Practice and Saturdays cover input.

Sample course content

1. Input sessions

These sessions consist of workshops, discussions, lectures, peer teaching and video viewing and cover the following areas:
- Analysis of language from a foreign learner’s perspective
- Learner motivation, needs and expectations
- Lesson planning and syllabus design
- Classroom management and the role of the teacher
- Approaches and techniques for introducing and practising language and for developing language skills

2. Teaching Practice

Teaching practice is an integral part of the course. It is organised in small groups of 5 or 6 trainees with volunteer students at two different levels and takes place every day. After each teaching practice session, a reflection and evaluation of the session is led by a course tutor. Personalised, individual, written feedback is also given.

3. Observation

The observation of formally-qualified, practising teachers is an intrinsic part of the course and takes place outside the main timetable.

4. Written Assignments

There are four written assignments to be completed during the course. These are of a practical nature and are designed to support the development of the teaching practice of course participants.
