​TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test) is suitable for teachers of English in primary, secondary or adult teaching contexts and is intended for an international audience of non-first language or first language teachers of English.
​Candidates taking TKT will normally have some experience of teaching English to speakers of other languages. TKT may also be taken by:

  • Pre-service teachers
  • Teachers who wish to refresh their teaching knowledge
  • Teachers who are moving to teaching English after teaching another subject

Each module has one test paper, which lasts 80 minutes and has 80 questions. Among other things, they test the knowledge of the terms and concepts of English language teaching, factors underpinning the learning of English, a range of materials, tasks and activities for English language teaching, the knowledge and skills you need to plan lessons, the types of assessment and resources that can guide your lesson planning, teachers’ and learners’ language and classroom management.

The Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) is a test from Cambridge ESOL about teaching English to speakers of other languages. It aims to increase teachers’ confidence and enhance job prospects by focusing on the core teaching knowledge needed by teachers of primary, secondary or adult learners, anywhere in the world. This flexible and accessible award will help you to understand:

  • Different methodologies for teaching
  • The ‘language of teaching’
  • The ways in which resources can be used
  • The key aspects of lesson planning
  • Classroom management methods for different needs.

The course will give you a thorough introduction to the exam and help you prepare and pass successfully. You will learn more about teaching methodology and will feel more confident about naming, describing and evaluating different teaching approaches, activities and techniques.

TKT: CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) is a specialist module of the Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) that focuses on content teaching in a second or other language.
