About the course

Teach your students to get the best grades in their IELTS Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading exams.

There are four separate four-week, part-time, online courses, each specialising in a different exam paper, to help you prepare your learners for their IELTS exam.

Enrol if:

  • You are new to teaching IELTS
  • You are at B2 level of English or above

(You don’t need to be teaching an IELTS class currently to complete the course.)

Course content

Each course is practical, with tips and advice from experienced IELTS teachers and examiners. You can experiment with different methods and discuss your experiences with your group peers. 

You will be encouraged to reflect to improve your own teaching skills. 

All courses are 100% online and 100% asynchronous, self study with support from an online tutor. 

Each course, whether Speaking, Listening, Writing or Reading, will cover the same main topics:

  • Overview of the exam, types of tasks involved and grade descriptions. 
  • Common student difficulties and errors 
  • Activities to help students overcome common errors
  • Exam techniques (specific to the exam)
  • Feedback methods to keep motivation for IELTS high

Duration and your time commitment

We advise you to spend about 5 hours each week, for the 4 weeks of the course.

Assessment & certificate

There is no formal assessment. If you complete the weekly tasks and engage with your tutor, you will receive a certificate of completion. 

All certificates are digital, stored on a registered verified site so a prospective employer, client, or anyone else you choose to share your certificate with can be sure it is genuine.  It will look like this:

This means things are as simple and straightforward as possible for you. A digital certificate is more safe and secure for you than paper – it won’t get lost in the post, it won’t get damaged over time, and won’t get lost. It is always available, you can share in just one click, or you can print as many copies as you like whenever you would like. And, it’s better for the environment. Reducing paper, ink, and delivery means a lower carbon footprint.
