English Language Teaching Program

Description

This British Council program will help English language teachers understand and plan their own professional development needs and share their experience with other teachers around the world.

Continuing professional development (CPD) has been defined as:

> “The process by which, alone and with others, teachers … acquire and develop critically the knowledge, skills and emotional intelligence essential to good professional thinking, planning and practice.”Day, C (1999)

The British Council’s CPD Framework identifies 12 different practices that teachers should consider as they plan their professional development inside and outside the classroom. From planning lessons and courses to promoting 21st century skills, the Framework is a practical guide for teachers in all situations.

The Teaching for Success program looks at the 12 professional practices in three areas:

Lessons and Teaching Learning and Learners The Classroom and the World. Taken in any order, the three courses will equip any English language teacher with the tools they need to take responsibility for their own CPD. Each course will look at four professional practices, explain their importance to the continuously developing teacher, and offer a range of practical advice and suggestions, as well as the opportunity to interact with fellow teachers around the world.

Accessible on desktop, tablet or mobile and delivered in bite-sized chunks, the courses provide a flexible way to develop as a teacher – whatever your situation.

When you complete all three courses and obtain a Certificate of Achievement for each, you will earn a FutureLearn Award as proof of completing the program of study.
