New to ESOL Teaching Practice Course (Code: C1037)
This course is an opportunity for ESOL practitioners and volunteers to work in teaching practice groups with an experienced trainer, to try out practical approaches, techniques and ideas with their learners and to share their insights and experiences. Each teaching practice group of approximately five practitioners will work with an experienced trainer who will set practical teaching tasks for each group matched to their teaching contexts and learners. Groups will meet fortnightly, for an hour, between January and March 2021, and participants will feed back and share experiences.
Who is this for?

To provide participants with the opportunity to try New to ESOL focussed approaches, techniques and resources in the context of supportive and reflexive teaching practice groups with experienced trainers.
