Course outline Prices & course dates

This immersive and interesting Advancing your Professional Practice (creative methodology) 10-day course will allow participants to develop English skills and personal classroom practice through trainer-led lectures and practical-based sessions. Having the opportunity to share your ideas with others and then actually deliver them in ‘mini lessons’ makes our course something unique and extremely appealing to the can-do teacher.

Participants are expected to take a full and active part in all aspects of the course in order to maximise the teaching and learning opportunities on offer. A wide range of ideas will be explored, creating a forum for experienced classroom practitioners to share and discuss teaching in the modern age.

Working with our enthusiastic and professional practitioners, a wide range of stimulating ideas will be considered to produce engaging and relevant lesson content .

Course content will include the main topic areas:

Creative Classrooms

A plethora of ideas will be explored, including games, drama, music and art-based activities, to turn dry coursebook content into kinaesthetic, fun and memorable learning experiences.

Future Focus
Staying in the creative mould, the key focus here centres around using modern technology and techno-themed ideas to appeal to young English learners brought up in a modern and social media- centric world.

Throughout the course you will also:

  • evaluate and develop your own teaching techniques and personal practice
  • be actively involved in your own lifelong learning journey
  • discuss and critique your own ideas with other professionals in your field

The broad topics covered in this course include:

  • Discussing Methodology within Schools and Reflective Teaching
