Professional development for language teachers

Partnership Remote Language Improvement (PRELIM) project

Delivering professional development courses for ELT staff as part of the PRELIM project

We are thrilled to announce collaborative project to develop the confidence and skills of English Teaching Association (ETA) members in Argentina. Our partners on this innovative teacher training project are APIBA, FAAPI and ACPI

Which organisations endorse the PRELIM project?

Our bespoke language teacher training courses for English Teaching Association (ETA) members started in January 2021. The PRELIM project is a joint initiative with British Council, IATEFL and English UK.

Paola Lopez Cano (ABIPA Argentina) reports ‘One particular asset we fully appreciate is the sensitivity to local teaching contexts as attention to situated teaching and learning is woven into every single exchange.’

What does this Teacher Training course cover?

Our Teacherr training programme is interactive to help understand individual learning needs. It focuses on language development and confidence in the classroom. 

Some of the key learning areas include Micro Teaching techniques, encouraging learner autonomy, and exploring new technology.

Networking opportunities

The success of the project has led to us creating a Community of Practice for teachers from both cohorts to network and share ideas. This means that the benefits of the project continues, even after classes finish.

Why choose our Teacher Training programmes?

We have a background in offering quality teacher training programmes. St Clare’s have offered IB teacher training courses in cooperation with the IBO since 2002 and have delivered bespoke English language teacher training for many years.

This project complements our mission to ‘advance international education and understanding’.
