(In-service Certificate in English Language Teaching)

This is a Cambridge award for practising teachers of English which aims to enhance and develop candidates’ practical teaching skills, teaching knowledge and expertise and professional English language skills. Many non-native teachers study for this award but native teachers of English may also do so.The programme is divided into two modules:

Module One: Language for Teachers

Module Two: Teaching and Methodology

Module One on its own can be completed either in the UK, or in your home country.

Module Two must be completed in your home country as the teaching context must be taken into account. Therefore Modules One and Two are often taken together in the home country.
