Teachers of English Course

Teachers of English Course

The St Giles TEC is a teacher development course for non-native speaker teachers of English who want to update their teaching methodologies, as well as improve their own English skills and develop their professional knowledge.

Participants develop and explore aspects of teaching methodology and techniques, and learn to assess and utilise a variety of teaching aids and resources. At the end of the course, all participants receive a certificate of attendance and a St Giles Teachers of English Course Certificate.

The main elements of the course are:

  • Language development
  • Background to language learning and teaching
  • Different methodologies for teaching
  • Classroom management and practical teaching skills
  • Lesson planning
  • Teaching aids and resources
  • Observation of experienced teachers

These courses are designed to be very flexible, and can be adapted to suit the specific needs of the participants. We can also arrange closed group courses for groups of teachers travelling together at any time of year.

Your level of English should be at least level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages to take part. (This is equivalent to FCE, IELTS 5, TOEFL computer-based score of 173)


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.
