Our courses are designed to develop learner proficiency in English using communicative, student - centred methodology. Lessons focus on language activation, confidence building, and communicative competence. We use a topic - based syllabus, that is full of practical functional language, which the learners will be able to use on excursions and during activities whilst in the UK, and also in real life after the summer.

Students are taught in classes of up to 15 and placed into one of 5 levels (Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate and Advanced) upon arrival.

Each student receives a copy of our Quick Smart English coursebook, they can take away with them at the end of the course.

Teachers receive comprehensive guidelines for the “Quick Smart English” series. Despite the ready-made lesson guidelines, we expect our teachers to use their own creativity and adopt the materials to cater to individual needs. In addition to the coursebook and the lesson guidelines, we provide teachers with a selection of supplementary online teaching and developmental materials.

Teachers have access to these materials as soon as they return a signed contract.

Please contact us initially via email at the address given on the job heading in order for me to be able to invite you for the Skype/ telephone interview to discuss this position in detail. 

I’m looking forward to receiving your application

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


This unit involved how to teach productive rather than receptive skills. Productive skills include speaking and writing (producing content rather than receiving content). In this unit we looked at the differences between teaching for accuracy and teaching for fluency. Accuracy activities are sometimes more appropriate for teaching writing and fluency activities encourage creative speaking.This unit was useful as it broke down the different parts of lesson planning. It stated the purpose of lessons plans are to be an aid to planning, a working document, and a record. They should be simple and structured, and they should be flexible so you can have some room to accommodate for more or less time or material. It also provides a useful list of what to include in the lesson plan.
