CLED Special Programs offers substantial experience and expertise in training English language teachers. We develop programs for teachers working in diverse cultural environments with different challenges and resources. We also provide analysis and advice to countries seeking to expand English in their national curriculum for public schools.
In all of our programs, our approach is to teach strategies that can be applied immediately in the classroom and encourage teachers to continue their own learning. We emphasize Communicative Language Teaching, where students learn English by using it in real-life situations. This method is highly effective for teaching English in classrooms around the world.
Individuals new to the EFL field may select:
Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Certificate Program
This course is conducted online for 16 weeks, followed by a 5 day on-campus practicum. Students work remotely on the challenging coursework through a web-based system, then come together for intensive teaching practice with real classes.
CLED Special Programs also provides custom teacher training.
- Organizations may request a custom program for their groups. CLED Special Programs works with educational councils, ministries of education, universities, and government agencies.
