Intermediate TEFL-YL Course
Are you a teacher in search of further professional development and EFL classroom experience? Have you considered studying on a TEFL-YL course in Austrian Alps to earn the Cambridge English TKT Certification from Cambridge University?
SPRING COURSE DATES: 29TH MARCH TO 29TH JULY 2016
Increase your employability as an EFL teacher through this unique opportunity to learn, travel and teach, whilst studying for a TEFL-YL certification in and around the Austrian Alps. The course puts a strong emphasis on the implementation of CLIL and young learner education techniques and methods. As a trainee on an intensive teacher training course, together with your teaching practice group, you will learn to teach English as a foreign language to young learners from the ages of 8 to 15. Trainees will gain experience teaching in more than twenty different schools while living in different locations in Austria. Course participants will also add to their theoretical knowledge behind language acquisition, teaching skills, language awareness and working with young learners. Experience using technology to teach via an online Virtual Learning Environment is also provided. Thanks to the support of sponsors, donors and our supporting members, the college is structured in such a way so as to subsidize the course costs of each trainee studying for their TEFL-YL certification.
The main campus is located in the Austrian Lake District (the region made famous by the “Sound of Music” movie), but college apartments in Vienna, Graz and other locations provide trainees with easy access to students all across Austria and beyond. The English Teacher Training College and its associated Bilingual Classroom Initiative (ABCi) is a not-for-profit Austrian College with a dual mission: Firstly, as a college and as an official Cambridge English Exam Preparation Centre, to provide a practical education in teacher training for trainees from the English-speaking world based solely on the candidate's academic merit. Secondly, as a charity outreach, to promote language learning, cultural exchange and foster understanding between English-speaking countries and Austria by bringing hundreds of teachers from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, America, Canada, New Zealand and Australia into Austrian classrooms to reach every child with a free English project by the year 2020. The College has a special focus on bringing free English projects to rural and often otherwise overlooked children in the alpine region.
