About the teacher training centre
Do you want an online professional development course, no matter where you are in the world?
We have courses for every stage of a teacher’s career, from soon after your initial qualification to DELTA level and management courses.
On our courses you can ‘attend’ whenever (and wherever!) is convenient for you. You don't usually have to attend a live chat or webinar at a specific time, although sometimes there are live "meetups" so you have the chance to chat with your tutor and other classmates.
To help you there is ongoing support from your tutors in online forums and through individual feedback - and you'll probably find your other course participants are really helpful as well.
What is the IH Online Course in Teaching Young Learners and Teenagers?
If you are new to teaching YL classes and are finding that the guidelines you were given in your initial training don’t seem to apply to younger learners as they do to adults, this course is for you.
If you want to progress in your career, you will probably have to teach young learners at some point. You might even love this age group and want to specialise. This course will give you the key skills to help you excel in teaching Young Learners and Teenagers and get valuable practical ideas.
Our new course is entirely online so you can access the material and discussions whenever suits you.
The content is:
- An introduction to YLs and how they learn
- Classroom Management
- Materials/Practising language/Correction techniques
- Clarification of new language
- Speaking & Listening
- Reading & Writing
- Focus on the Learner
- Final Assignment
The course lasts 8 weeks. Weekly tasks and a final assignment makes up the portfolio of work that will be graded for your final certificate.
The IH Online CYLT with IH OTTI
Why take this course with us? Simple - we are the only training centre to offer it!
International House has been at the forefront of developing innovative courses for young learners teachers for many years. We first developed the IH CYLT course in the 2000s, and it has since become an industry standard.
This new course, revised and rewritten in 2018, is now totally online.
Good news! If you work in an International House school you will receive a discount, reducing the fee to just £300.
Unfortunately, for both business and individuals located in the UK we have to add 20% VAT. This means you will pay £450, or £360 if you are IH staff.
If you are not based in the UK, you won't be charged this.
