We are proud to announce that Nottingham Language Tuition will soon offer Trinity College London’s Certificate for Practising Teachers (CertPT) as a new addition to our portfolio of internationally recognised and accredited teacher training courses!
What is the CertPT?
The CertPT is an advanced qualification for practicing language teachers seeking to update, improve and enrich their professional teaching practice. It draws upon established and evidence-based teaching theory, while promoting the acquisition and refinement of the specialist skills needed to develop and utilise effective teaching resources.
This qualification is accredited by Trinity College London and sits at level 6 on the UK’s National Qualifications Framework (the same rating given to the final year of a bachelor’s degree at university). This places it between the Trinity CertTESOL/Cambridge CELTA and DipTESOL/ DELTA qualifications
Over the course, you will develop your ability to evaluate, adapt, create and reflect on the use of different teaching resources, with a specific focus on their application in your own teaching context. Beside general language teaching, contexts could include, for example, teaching young learners, or teaching English for specific or academic purposes.
Who is this course for?
This course is aimed at in-service language teachers looking for meaningful and practical CPD (Continuing Professional Development), or for those who would like to upskill and update their knowledge as a bridge to starting a level 7 teaching Diploma, such as the Trinity DipTESOL or Cambridge DELTA. All course participants should have either an initial teaching qualification and six months teaching experience; or a minimum of two years’ teaching experience.
This course is suitable and relevant for teachers of all languages; including those who teach English as a Foreign or Second Language, or modern languages such as Spanish, German, or Esperanto … or even for teachers of ancient languages who wish to bring their dead language back to life! We currently offer the opportunity for either English or Spanish language assignment submissions (Although, please note that all course content will be delivered in English. So, there is an English language requirement that all course participants can communicate at a minimum of CEFR B2 level).
Please visit the Trinity College website for more information about this qualification.
We will soon be running an internal trial and prototype of the course before we open to the general public. We have a very limited number of places for external candidates on this trial course available at a discounted price. Contact us now to register your interest or to ask us for more details.
Normal price: £850
Trial Course Price: £500 (Scheduled for July 2022 start)
