Our Cert ICT (Certificate in Teaching Languages with Technology),
Cert IBET (Certificate in International Business English Training)
and Moodle Starter courses all got off to a flying start last week,
with participants from the UK, Hong Kong, Australia, Germany, Spain,
Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Italy, Denmark, India, Indonesia, Poland,
the UAE and Canada!
We have several short online 2-week courses (10 hours) and 4-week
courses (30 hours) which look at various ICT tools and their
application to f2f teaching starting from later this week, and in
February and March, also with nice interntional groups already signed
up on them. Our short courses offer you the chance to invest in
quality online teacher training at reasonble rates, and without the
expense of having to travel or leave your workplace while gaining a
highly-regarded additional qualification – something that can come in
handy in these troubled economic times to give you a competitive edge
in finding or keeping a job.
As you know, our courses run 100% online in Moodle, and a have a
limit of 15 participants per course.
