INTEGRATED AND ONLINE COURSES

Often, teachers and schools want to take part in professional development courses, but don’t have the time to do all the courses they want.

At Leeds Language Academy, we offer integrated CPD training, meaning you can complete two courses at one time. As well as our bespoke modules, you can also choose to complete an online training course from Oxford Teachers’ Academy or Cambridge Online Teacher Development. You can also choose to take an online course individually, with full support from our trainers.

 

Some of the online courses available are:

Teaching English to  Young Learners
Teaching Grammar
Teaching Vocabulary and Pronunciation
Understanding Assessment
Teaching Learners with Special Educational Needs

and many more! You can find a full list of online teacher training courses here.

 

 

Why should I take an online course to improve my teaching? Online courses are a great way to improve your teaching around work, family and volunteering and are cheaper for individual teachers. These online courses are from the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, so are good quality courses from respected academic institutions that we are proud to work with.

Why should I do an online courses with Leeds Language Academy? An online programme cannot give you the support and help of a real person. You will be able to email and talk to our trainers to get advice, ask questions and better understand the online information.
