Due to the pandemic, we will not offer face-to-face courses in the second semester of 2022. The good news is, on-site courses will be back in 2023.

First Things First

This course prepares teachers of English to sit C1 Advanced (formerly known as Cambridge English: Proficiency (CAE)). It consists of two modules, offered along 2 terms. Some work is done virtually and is based on the files uploaded by tutors. Our groups are formed only by teachers of English. Before teachers sign up, they are asked to send us a scanned image of their FAE certificate, IELTS 6.5. Any other C1 certificate used as proof of linguistic level must have been issued in the previous 18 months to enrolment and will be analysed by tutors. In case the teacher has no official exam certificate, a placement interview (usually via Skype or Whereby) can be arranged. Candidates are also asked to dedicate an average of 3-5 hours a week (outside the classroom).

Assessment happens all throughout the course. Officially, each module consists of:

  • 3 compositions

  • 1 full Practice Test

  • 1 end-of-term test

Deadlines for these tasks are not negotiable, and need to be respected. Tutors mark the papers and give feedback to candidates. Other aspects such as self-study, homework, online tasks, are also going to be analysed along the course. Reports will be issued to participants or schools.
