Teaching Knowledge Test

Teaching Knowledge Test

The Cambridge TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test) is an award for English language teachers. The test aims to increase teachers' confidence and enhance job prospects by focusing on the core teaching knowledge needed by teachers of primary, secondary or adult learners, anywhere in the world. The TKT can be taken at any stage in a teacher's career, and is also ideal for those who have not yet started teaching.

St Giles offers a TKT Preparation Course at St Giles Brighton.

The TKT comprises three modules:

  • Module 1: Language and background to language learning and teaching
  • Module 2: Lesson planning and use of resources for language teaching
  • Module 3: Managing the teaching and learning process

All TKT candidates will be automatically entered for Module 1, and can then choose the number of additional TKT modules they wish to prepare for. Candidates will prepare for the test(s) through input sessions and directed study, and will take them during the final week of their course.


You may be able to get some help towards the cost of your course at St Giles International and your stay in the UK, from the new EU programme ERASMUS+.

Please note that individuals cannot apply for funds from this programme, but your school, college or university can apply for an ERASMUS+ mobility project once a year, in March, and they can use this to support your participation. Your organisation will need our PIC (Personal Identification Code) number which is: 943613867

You can download a short ERASMUS+ information sheet here and you can find more details of ERASMUS+ on the European Commission website.
