This two-day course will be beneficial to teachers who are already teaching IELTS classes, as well as for ESL instructors who wish to teach IELTS classes in the future. ESL teachers will receive a Certificate in Teaching IELTS Preparation upon the successful completion of the course.

The course introduces participants to the most effective strategies for achieving student success. Through direct 'hands on' experience participants will leave the workshop equipped with a wealth of ideas, classroom activities and source material to reduce student stress, enrich their own teaching of academic writing, reading, speaking, and listening, and encourage the highest possible outcomes for future IELTS candidates attending their classes.
