The course is aimed at teachers of English who wish to train IELTS candidates or are already doing so and would like to develop and specialize their teaching.
It is delivered in three online sessions, which are followed by an assignment to submit within a week after receipt via email.
Before the course sessions there is pre course reading in order to complete a short entry quiz after signing up, with the purpose of getting to know our course participants.
Online input sessions are divided between receptive and productive skills presented in the following order:
How to teach IELTS Speaking
How to teach IELTS Reading and Listening Skills
How to teach IELTS Writing
Course content includes:
planning, creating and choosing material, teaching techniques, teaching for specific band scores, dealing with general training and academic mixed classes and IELTS 1-2-1.
It is required for participants to have a good internet connection, working speakers and a microphone, a webcam is not necessary.
The course is certified once candidates have received feedback and passed all two assignments. If a course participant does not meet the criteria, they have a chance to resubmit once but will not be awarded a distinction. Each assignment can be resubmitted once and course participants can ask the tutor for assistance before submission and resubmission.
Distinction, pass or fail.
Candidates who have failed submissions and resubmissions do not get a certificate and should retake the course.

"I decided to do Ielts course online since it is my first time in this level/exam preparation. It has been really useful and fruitful as we had to put what we were taught into practice and that is what I´m using in my classroom now. "
