Aims and Structure
This course is practical and consists of workshops and input on the key basics in YL teaching.
Course Participants (Cps) will:
- Practice planning to meet aims
- Learn about activities to use to stimulate and support language development, for example craft, games, stories and songs and ways to make learning opportunities from play
- Learn classroom management techniques
- Practice online teaching
Seminars and inputs will take place completely online with interactive remote lessons. All trainees will then have the opportunity to peer teach online, putting their new skills into practice and receiving feedback from the tutors. There are no written assignments or coursework.
CPs will self-assess their learning throughout the course, compiling a learner diary which, along with their tried and tested lesson plans and feedback will provide them with a portfolio of ideas, suggestions and reflections to take them forward in their YL teaching.
If you’ve always wanted to teach Young Learners, this course is the kit you need to get started!
