Continuing professional development for English language teachers, at all stages of their career, is essential.
At NATECLA, we realise that high quality, current and affordable practical in-house training, specifically tailored for ESOL departments, is in short supply. Utilising our network of highly rated teacher trainers, NATECLA has now established an in-house training service for further education colleges, adult and community education services and private training providers, including those in the EFL field, to support teachers and managers across the UK with developing practical teaching skills.
Our innovative and highly experienced trainers - all with varying experience and approaches - offer a wide range of practically-focused 90 minute, half day or full day sessions which can be tailored to your departmental requirements. Here's a small taster of what our trainers can offer:
