The autumn course leads up to the nearest exam, to be held on Wednesday, December  5th, 2018. But you are free to take the exam at a later day (June 2019).

AM I THE RIGHT CANDIDATE?

To qualify for the course, you need to meet the following criteria:

  • have at least 2 year’s full-time experience of teaching English, ideally of a range of levels, ages and contexts, although applications from less experienced candidates may also be considered
  • your English (spoken and written) is good enough to teach at a range of levels (Minimum CEFR Level – speaking and writing: C1 or above.)

You will normally have an initial English language teaching qualification, such as CELTA.  We may still accept you on to the course without CELTA, if you demonstrate that you would be likely to complete the course successfully. This will be assessed during the interview.
