Training courses for language teachers

Combine a teacher-training course with an active holiday in a beautiful destination. Offered at accredited teacher training centres in superb international locations, these courses are your chance to enjoy a refreshing break with tangible career benefits. Whether you are an experienced teacher or new to the profession, a native speaker or a non-native speaker, these language teacher development courses will help you become a better teacher.

Initial teacher training courses & refresher courses

If you are considering a career in language teaching, an initial teacher-training course provides the skills, knowledge and hands-on teaching practice you need. At the end of the course, you will be confident and ready to teach your first class. Studying topics like lesson planning, classroom control and learner psychology, you will learn the essentials of the job.  
Refresher courses typically focus on a specific area of teaching, such as CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) or technology in the classroom. You can also choose from a selection of general refresher courses which combine practical teaching skills with language training. 

Courses for native & non-native speakers

We offer language teacher training courses for native and non-native speakers. Courses designed for non-native speakers include language tuition alongside the teacher training, putting you back in touch with the language you teach. You will also have the chance to exchange tips and experiences with language teachers from all over the world.
By studying in a country where the language is spoken, and living surrounded by the culture, you will continue to learn outside of class, while having an enjoyable active holiday.

I had a very good time doing the CELTA course, though it was very hard work I enjoyed learning the latest methods of teaching English with English people.

I am very grateful to my tutors Dave and Lucy for enlightening me with the latest methods of teaching English to adults. I gained immense knowledge by their teaching. I am highly indebted to them. I also learnt a lot by observing other experienced teachers of BEET like Julie, Annabelle, Martin and Ali.

I will always cherish these sweet memories of BEET people throughout my life!

The teachers are very competent and friendly. The most interesting thing I have learnt here is... everything! I want to share the knowledge that I have gained here when I get back home to my city in Brazil. My advice to teachers coming to ITTC is to be open to different cultures and be ready to meet different people and listen to different accents.

I have learned so many things. I am sharing my knowledge and experience – all the things I’ve learnt throughout my studies and my career - with others. You can interchange ideas and knowledge with... it’s constant. It’s a very useful experience. I encourage people to apply for these kinds of courses because they are really, really useful... not only to grow as a teacher but to grow as a person. As an individual, you experience a lot of different things. When I come back to my city I will try to share the knowledge acquired because I believe in sharing knowledge. The extra activities that BEET plans are nice: going out, sightseeing during the weekend. They provide a timetable with movies, trips to see live music at the pub and lectures. I would tell potential applicants about the experience of living here, meeting new people... going out! My advice to teachers coming to ITTC would be to be open-minded because you will meet a lot of people from all over the world. Also be ready to give everything a try and be open to anything. This is not just a course to improve your English... you learn a lot about life.
