A 10 hour, online course designed for English teachers working in primary education with younger learners aged 6-12 years. This creative, interactive, and fun programme will give you practical ideas you can use in your own classes – giving you more confidence and the opportunity to network with other teachers from around the world.

You can enrol at any time of year and take up to 4 weeks to complete. You will be given access to downloadable materials, suggested reading lists, and have the option to submit a lesson plan and self evaluation for comments from our team.


  • Learn how to create a productive and happy learning environment
  • Source and adapt a range of activities for use with younger learners of different ages
  • Boost your language skills through fun and interactive learning activities that will also practice teacher language for the primary classroom


The course has 10 hours’ worth of content – a mixture of training videos, interactive tasks, and guided self-study. You can enrol at any time of year, and will be given access to the content and materials for 4 weeks, so you can complete activities at your own pace. Before the end of your course, you can submit a lesson plan, and a self-evaluation of that lesson, to one of our teacher training team for feedback.

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.


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.
