These are observed by a trainer, and detailed and constructive feedback is given to you after each lesson, to help you improve for your next lesson, and your career to follow. (You will get an opportunity to teach both young learners and adults). Our qualified trainers will assist you with the lesson planning process. Read our blog on making the most of your observed lesson

  • Materials project: Here you will present the materials used for lessons, to the class.

  • A journal entry assignment

  • Various lesson planning and group work assignments

  • Various tests and tasks over the 4-week course, covering grammar, punctuation and a few other aspects covered in class. We work with our teachers to adequately prepare them for these tests. All content of the tests is covered during the course.
     

There is no final examination that determines your pass grade. Your final course result is determined by the combined marks of the assignments above, as well as on your participation and teamwork in class, attendance and behaviour.
 

A grade of at least 70% is required in order to pass the course. More than 50% of this grade is made up of marks for teacher practices.
Trainees are awarded with either a 'pass', 'merit', 'high merit' or 'distinction' on their certificates. All graduates also receive a report, and those who obtain a merit or higher, are also presented with a personalised letter of reference.
