Tailored Teacher Training for Groups
The University of Adelaide’s English Language Centre has an impressive record of delivering tailored English teacher training programs for overseas education departments, international schools and universities. The key to the success of our programs lies in their flexibility – they can be run for any length of time, and the program content is tailored to meet your group’s specific learning needs. Run by our highly experienced TESOL trainers, our programs offer a unique way to develop participant’s English language and TESOL methodology skills, learn about Australia, the English language teaching industry and to practise English in real situations. The English Language Centre is a CELTA - Cambridge English Language Assessment authorised centre.
About the Program
Each program is designed to meet the specific learning requirements of the groups however, most programs have two key focus areas:
- Improving English language proficiency.
- Development of teaching methodologies; learning concepts and undertaking practical experience.
Morning sessions might involve TESOL methodology classes and English language training, while seminars, workshops, cultural activities and self-study project work is undertaken in the afternoon. The cultural activities, incorporated into both the language and methodology classes, provide an ideal way to explore Adelaide and practice English. They could include city tours, University tours and visits to Adelaide’s renowned museums and galleries. Accommodation, again, is arranged to meet the needs of your individual group. Homestay is popular among many teacher groups because it provides an opportunity to live with local South Australians and gain confidence in speaking English.
Each program is designed to meet the specific learning outcomes of the group. Generally at the end of the program, your group members will have:
- developed English language proficiency
- knowledge of the Australian English language teaching industry
- a range of teaching methodologies for use in the classroom
- improved knowledge of classroom management and organization and how to plan a lesson
- confidence in the classroom; and
- practical experience.
And at the end of the program, all group members will receive a certificate from the prestigious University of Adelaide.
Our specialist study tour staff would be pleased to tailor a program or course to meet specific your needs. Contact the Manager, International Relations firstname.lastname@example.org
