An online Certificate in Teaching English to Children and Teenagers

London School of Languages are delighted to announce a brand-new teacher training certificate: The YLs Course. This 24-week online course has been created by teachers for teachers and aims to provide them with a deeper understanding of the teaching of English to both children and teenagers.

What is it?

The YLs Course is a 24-week online course, with optional 6-hour face-to-face and exam components. The course consists of 20 modules on a wide variety of teaching topics relating to Young Learners; making it the perfect course for teachers wishing to build on the knowledge gained in their initial teacher training course and better prepare themselves for their YLs classes. Participants are expected to spend around 3 hours per week on the course, in order to complete all 20 modules within the specified time. There are 4 extra weeks of online access at the end of the course to complete two written assignments.

There is also the option of taking the official Cambridge Assessment English TKT:YL exam in San Sebastián at the end of the course in order to receive an official Cambridge Assessment English teaching qualification; recognised in countries all over the world. The exam will take place three times a year (March, July and November). Participants must sit the exam after completion of the online course component and within 12 months of doing so.

Each participant who successfully completes all elements of the online course within 24 weeks and submits the two pieces of written work will be awarded with a certificate outlining the length and topics covered on The YLs Course. Teachers who also complete the face-to-face component will see this reflected in their final course certificate.

Teachers who complete and pass the TKT:YL exam will receive an official Cambridge Assessment English certificate outlining the qualification obtained along with the date.

Some of the components covered on the course will be:

  • Motivational Factors in the YL classroom
  • Classroom management
  • Using the coursebooks
  • Integrating exam preparation
  • Technology in the classroom
  • CLIL

There are no set start/end dates for the course and participants will have 24-week access to the online material from the day they receive their log-in information.
