Teacher Training Group Courses

General

Program Description

Our Teacher Training Courses (also eligible for Erasmus plus funding) aim to give teachers of English or any other language taught as a foreign language the opportunity to further their professional development as language teaching practitioners in their respective settings, whether among primary or secondary school children, with students from the same or diverse backgrounds, and even in a classroom with impaired learners.

Whatever your training needs are as a serious teacher in search of self-improvement, we are sure that you will find something to whet your professional appetite in our selection of carefully structured and seriously thought out teacher training programmes.

In terms of methodology, participants on any of our teacher training courses can enjoy a combination of explicit instruction and direct teacher involvement. Following the format of a workshop, sessions are:

  • Interactive with plenty of ongoing group discussion and opportunities for participants to draw on their own experience and exchange ideas they feel are worth sharing;
  • Demonstrative in the presentation of teaching approaches, lesson planning, and materials design;
  • Practical and hands-on when it comes to trialing some of the ideas presented in class, with the aim that participants will be able to take something tangible away with them (a specific technique, a particular activity, a general way of planning lessons or adapting resources, etc.);
  • Experiential in nature, so that participants can experience the content being presented and promoted (methodologies, teaching styles, lesson plans etc.) first-hand, from the perspective of students, through which they will be better positioned to make judgments on learning effectiveness;
  • Evaluative with opportunities for individual reflection, teaching practice, lesson observations and peer feedback.
