The St Giles TEC is a teacher development course for non-native teachers of English who want to update their teaching methodologies, as well as improve their English.
Participants develop and explore aspects of teaching methodology and techniques, and learn to assess and utilise a variety of teaching aids and resources. At the end of the course, all participants receive a certificate of attendance and a St Giles Teachers of English Course Certificate. You can also opt to prepare for the Cambridge TKT as part of the course, as detailed below.
The main elements of the course are:
- Language development
- Background to language learning and teaching
- Different methodologies for teaching
- Classroom management and practical teaching skills
- Lesson planning
- Teaching aids and resources
- Observation of experienced teachers
These courses are designed to be very flexible, and can be adapted to suit the specific needs of the participants. We can also arrange closed group courses for groups of teachers travelling together at any time of year.
Your level of English should be at least level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages to take part. (This is equivalent to FCE, IELTS 5, TOEFL computer-based score of 173)
Teachers from the EU enrolling on a St Giles TEC course or Cambridge ICELT course may be eligible for funding under the Comenius or Grundtvig programmes. These programmes provide training grants to enable staff involved in school education and non-vocational adult education to attend training courses of up to six weeks' duration, in participating European countries.
The deadlines for grant applications are far in advance of the course dates, so it is necessary to apply early. Those seeking this EU funding should contact their National Agency. Details of the courses are not included in the Comenius database, but St Giles can provide the information needed to support an application for an in-service training grant.
