HOW IT WORKS

You can also choose to upgrade your course:
- With our ‘Professional’ upgrade, you can also submit a 1-hour video of your teaching, for very detailed feedback.
- Group bookings (5 or more) can arrange to have a series of live webinars with one of our training team.
ABOUT OUR ONLINE PLATFORM
For the last 10 years, the teacher training department have used Moodle, to run various training courses, including the internationally-recognised Trinity DipTESOL programme for experienced teachers.
Moodle is one of the most popular learning management systems in the world, providing an effective teaching experience in a collaborative, private environment.
Our courses feature a variety of video materials, quiz types, short answer questions, chat threads and directed tasks for self-study, drawing from current and well-respected materials in the EFL world. They are designed by our senior teacher training team, who have years of experience turning activities from a book, into creative, social and gameified online tasks.
