 Could you teach English to Adults?

If the answer is Yes!, then CALAT has a great opportunity for you. 

We offer the high quality training you need to develop your professional skills and become a teacher of adults.

L3 Award in English for Teaching Language or Literacy  

This qualification is the minimum level qualification required to teach English within the adult education sector.  On each course you will learn, develop and practise the English skills required for entry to the specialist teaching qualification. You will complete written assignments throughout the course. This course is also a very useful follow on if you have the L3 Award in Teaching and Learning, the generic teaching qualification and you want to develop a subject specialism. On successful completion, this qualification may lead to a Diploma in Education and Training or PGCE (Post Compulsory).

The 20-week course will start Friday 26th January 2018 10.00am – 1.00pm. 

Fees £650.00 (no concessions)

You must attend the information and assessment session before you can enrol on the course.
