Language teacher training courses

Enjoy an active holiday with career benefits: combine a teacher-training course with a stay in an exciting destination. In partnership with accredited teacher training centres in superb international locations, we offer language teacher development courses, for experienced teachers and new teachers, whether native speakers or non-native speakers. Refreshing your skills can be a pleasure.

Initial teacher training courses & refresher courses

For new teachers, an initial teacher-training course provides the skills, knowledge and hands-on teaching practice you need to be a successful language teacher. The courses include topics such as classroom control, lesson planning and learner psychology, along with time in front of a real class.
Language teacher refresher courses often focus on a specific area of the craft, such as technology in the classroom or CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning). We also offer a range of general refresher courses, ideal for brushing up on the latest methodology and giving your teaching career a boost.

Courses for native & non-native speakers

Within our range of language teacher training courses, you will find options for native and non-native speakers. Courses designed for non-native speakers generally include some language tuition alongside the more technical aspects of teaching. This option is ideal if you find yourself out of daily contact with the language you teach.
Refresher courses offer the chance to meet language teachers from other countries. Studying in a country where the language is spoken adds authenticity to the experience.

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.
