Summary

The PG Certificates are part-time courses studied over a period of one to five years and are run by the International Education Institute. They are designed to be particularly useful to experienced English language teachers as part of their continuous professional development, as well as those considering a career in English language teaching.

All PG Cert students take four modules. If you choose to study for the PG Cert without a specialism, you choose any four modules to shape your studies and explore your own interests. If you choose to study for the PG Cert with a specialism in a particular field, you also take:

  • Action Research for Teachers

  • the relevant module for your specialism

  • two other modules of your choice.

Highlights Focus your studies in your particular area of interest and gain a better theoretical and practical understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing practitioners in the field. Join experienced practitioners and scholars in the English language teaching community, with opportunities to be involved in ongoing professional development events and the annual English for Academic Purposes (EAP) conference. Integrate theory and practice – discuss theoretical concepts and frameworks in small groups and apply these through practical assessments and peer teaching sessions.
