ENGLISH TEACHER TRAINING & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

We offer a broad range of teacher training and professional development courses for school teachers (TDP), college/university faculty (FDP), and Senior Management (SMDP). These task-based intensive workshops provide extensive hands-on experience, preparing teachers to overcome teaching challenges such as classroom management, effective lesson planning and how to manage large mixed ability classes along with teaching the English Language in an engaging and interactive manner. We equip Indian teachers who are largely non-native speakers of the English Language with tried and tested strategies that help them to improve their confidence and ability to use English more effectively while teaching it as a foreign language to Indian students.
