What topics does the course cover?

Designed for experienced teachers, who are interested in taking on teacher training positions within their schools or in working as freelance teacher trainers,  the IH Teacher Trainer Course aims to give an overview of what can be expected internationally from professional teacher trainers. Where possible it is not course-specific but designed to enable participants to work on a variety of pre-service and in-service teacher training courses, in the international context.
