Teacher Training

Even teachers need time to fine-tune their skills and expertise, and UK2Learn’s teacher training programmes are ideal for non-native English language teachers, both trainee and practicing, wishing to improve their English language and teaching skills.

UK2Learn tailors the teacher training programme to specific requirements, so year on year the programme is modified to reflect changes in requirements. UK2Learn has found that this level of flexibility is a huge appeal for teachers who prefer to adapt the course content to suit their current interests. It also provides an opportunity to share teaching ideas and experiences with teachers from other countries.

In addition to the classroom activities, there is plenty of time to explore the major sites of the UK by taking part in UK2Learn’s excursion programme.

UK2Learn ensures that class sizes are kept small;  a maximum class size of just 14 means that you are ensured better teaching and learning. Remember that for every group of 10 teachers that sign up to UK2Learn teacher training, to show our appreciation, we will provide one additional teacher place absolutely free.
