8. Gain new practical skills
Set yourself apart from other English teachers by having a useful specialism that could be in demand where you’d like to work. For instance, our Teacher Training - Drama Music & Culture Programme will equip you to introduce these skills in a primary school English language classroom. Your pupils can be learning English whilst acting or improving their music.
9. Get equipped to teach at the right level
Lecturing and running seminars and tutorials at university is very different to teaching young children, and requires a whole different set of skills. You might have to give lectures and presentations, create academic documents and understand how to write articles for publication, and our Erasmus+ General English + Academic Writing & Presentation Skills programme is designed to help non-native English speakers teaching in English to do all of this. You’ll also get knowledge and skills you can share with students and colleagues, and use to move on in your career.
Get those skills: how to be a good English teacher
You can, of course, improve some of these skills for yourself. You can join professional groups, sign up to CPD blogs, work with senior staff and peers in your school to reflect on your teaching and get better. And it’s important to do that to keep on improving in your career.
But taking a short general English teacher course in as little as a week or two can do so much more for you. Teacher training in Ireland can give you a good start in learning new skills, improving existing ones and learning how to work with your peers.
