The move from English language teacher to teacher trainer involves a lot more than a new job title and different learners. There has been much discussion about who should provide teacher education and what it should consist of. One of the problems in defining a knowledge base and a set of skills for teacher educators is the enormous range of situations and types of teacher training course.
ELT teacher trainers may work in universities, in private language schools, in cultural institutes, in adult education or in state schools. The kind of courses they work on include school-teacher training, CELTAs and DELTAs, one-off workshops, publisher-sponsored training, TEFL taster courses and courses of various lengths for those who are already teachers.
UKTA will provide you with experienced local tutors who work, and have worked, on a variety of Trinity College London, NILE and Cambridge courses to share everything we have learned so that you have the best start possible as you make the move into teacher education.
This tutor-led and highly interactive learning experience using the NILE platform can be done as a stand-alone course, or you can add on the Level 6 CertPT certificate and gain an internationally accredited qualification.
