Entry requirements. Candidate trainees must:

- be sufficiently proficient in English to follow the course (at least a C1 level and accredit their language competence in the case of non-native speakers).

What can I expect from the course?
It is intensive, with a lot to learn in a short period of time.
Trainees are given a daily routine involving input sessions, teaching practice, feedback time, and guided lesson planning. Evenings and weekends are required to work on assignments and prepare lesson plans. Most trainees find the course demanding but highly gratifying as progress can be readily felt and evidenced.
At the end of the course, successful trainees should be capable of:
- making a learner needs assessment
- plan/prepare and execute classes which respond to learners’ needs
- show sufficient control and awareness of knowledge about language and the 4 skills
- apply appropriate teaching/classroom methods to allow students to learn effectively
- display professional awareness and responsibility
The end of each week test together with the trainer feedback will show how the trainee is advancing and at the end of week 4 there is a final assessment. Grading and certificates are given out on the last day.
