Cambridge TKT Preparation Course - Teacher Training Course

The Babel Academy Teacher Training course is for English teachers who would like to gain formal recognition of their experience, keep teaching skills up-to- date and develop career opportunities. If you are a non-first language English speaker and teacher of junior or adult learners and would like to improve your language skills, then this is the course for you. We offer a fully immersive, highly targeted course to maximise language learning and prepare teachers for the Cambridge TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test).

We explore innovative teaching methods such as tasks incorporating music and drama in the classroom, situation-based communicative activities and focus on specific challenges such as dealing with mixed-level groups. Participants have the opportunity to put their skills into practice and get structured feedback during the course through peer-teaching. Social events and cultural excursions give teachers a chance to enjoy Irish culture themselves and socialise with colleagues.

Tailored Programmes for Groups:

We can tailor programmes for groups of teachers with specific or specialised interests such as Teaching Younger Learners and CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning). Please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.

Package includes: All course materials | Babel bag and welcome pack | 3 mid-week excursions | 1 full-day Saturday trip | Accommodation (including meals)

I enjoyed everything during the course. It was kind of a challenge for me to come here with a group of teachers because it’s the first experience of our scientific-educational centre to organise it. Now I’m sure that it’s worth coming here. I like all the materials which I am going to take home with me. Thank you for everything!
