Whatever teacher training course you do, help reduce the on-course stress by getting one step ahead with these unique preparation tips :

  • BUILD an awareness of the English language
  • BRUSH UP on your English language awareness
  • READ selected chapters from a reliably sourced teaching manual - see "recommended reading".  NB: a copy of Learning Teaching by J.Scrivener is included in every StepIntoELT course. 
  • ORGANISE your time carefully particularly if you have a family with children. It's essential to arrange childcare well in advance and get your child/children used to the new routine and your absence well before the course; set aside a specific space that is 'yours' when you study at home. 
  • There is a lot of new TEACHING TERMINOLOGY to use. The British Council teaching English website has a useful online glossary.
