Course content

We provide academic and professional development for English language practitioners looking to advance their careers in teaching. This includes innovative teaching, curriculum and creative materials development, teacher education or training and other teaching-related activities.

You will gain practical classroom experience and you will develop creative multimedia resources and teaching materials through hands-on activities. There will be the opportunity to pursue a specialism, such as English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL), English for Academic Purposes (EAP), teaching English to Young Learners (YLs) or teacher training and English language teaching management.

We currently offer two routes of study:

Route One (Delta route) - This route is designed for experienced English language teachers with a high level of English, this route provides professional training and development with the option to enter for the widely recognised Cambridge Delta qualification. If you already have the Delta or an equivalent qualification, you will be able to top-up to a masters by starting in semester two.

Route Two (Non-Delta) -
Designed for the less experienced English language teacher who wants to gain a prestigious academic qualification in order to further their career, this route will enable you to gain insights into best practice through observing lessons either in person or on video, and you will reflect on your observations to develop an awareness of the principles and practice related to English language teaching.
