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.
IH Certificate in Advanced Methodology
If you’re a teacher with at least one year’s experience and you want to improve your theoretical knowledge of teaching, this course is for you.
Many teachers with experience say the IH CAM feels like a natural next step in their career, particularly if they have a view to complete the Delta or other Diploma qualification in teaching one day. The course is a good way for teachers to develop themselves professionally and personally, and to deepen their knowledge in certain areas of teaching theory.
There are 19 topics including theories of language learning, language learners, skills and systems. The course is moderated by Cambridge Assessment English.
At the end of this course, participants will be assessed based on a portfolio of homework tasks and a final assignment.
The IH CAM lasts 19 weeks (5 months).
