About this course
This free online course is for English language teachers around the world. It will help you develop the skills and practices you need for your continuing professional development (CPD).
This course is part of our Teaching for Success: Practices for English Language Teaching program. In the program we will look at the 12 professional practices for CPD on the British Council’s teacher development framework.
In this course you will look at four professional practices:
- Planning lessons and courses
- Managing resources
- Managing the lesson
- Taking responsibility for professional development.
Each week will focus on one of these practices. Short video interviews with experienced teachers will be combined with classroom films from around the world to illustrate the main points of each week. Video tutors, Suzanne and Claire, will guide you through each week’s content, offering tips, advice and downloadable resources at every stage. You will be asked to share your own experiences and opinions as you become part of a global community of English language teachers discussing what leads to success.
