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. All the work is done remotely and based on tasks 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 FCE certificate, or IELTS 6.5. Any other C1 certificate used as proof of linguistic level must have been issued in the 18 months prior 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.

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.
