Are you responsible for English language teacher professional development (PD) in your organisation?

  • Do you worry about how your PD budget can meet the needs of all your staff?

  • Are you frustrated because your face to face events have been cancelled?

  • Do you end up staying up late at night, finalising your PD programme?

  • Do some of your staff get confused or bored when your PD sessions are pitched at the wrong level?

  • Are your classroom observation sessions just a time-wasting compliance exercise, without a specific focus?

  • Do you think staff are embarrassed to ask for assistance on the more basic topics?

  • Have you managed to harness the power of flipped and peer learning for PD?

The ELT Training Library in Action

Paloma

Paloma has a group of visiting students arriving in her class tomorrow. She wants to make sure she’s doing what she can to foster great group dynamics between the new and the existing students.

Mariko

Mariko has found an awesome YouTube video to use in her class tomorrow. It’s long, though, so she’s looking for ways to break it up, and put in some comments and questions, to guide students as they watch.

Gary

Gary walks out of his class with a sore throat. He suspects he’s talking too much in his class, and wants to find other ways to communicate with his students.
  • How we help

    With access to the ELT Training library, Paloma, Mariko and Gary are all able to get the input they need, right when they need it. Their individual needs are met, and their Director of Studies does not need to prepare three different sessions!

  • Download and reflect

    Each course has a downloadable PDF to help them reflect on their learning and put it into practice. When it comes to their annual performance review, they are able to pull out their portfolio to show their DOS what they have been working on throughout the year.

  • Manage courses

    As the person responsible for PD, you can suggest appropriate courses for your staff when they express the desire to learn more, or when an evaluation suggests further training could assist. You may even like to encourage organization-wide focus on a particular topic each month, to encourage staff to share their learning, and focus their sharing of best practice.
