Teachers courses

Clare Language Centre offers teachers practical training courses that have been specifically designed for non-native teachers of English at primary and secondary-school level or for teachers who would like to use Content and Language and Integrated Learning (CLIL).

These courses provide language development classes and methodology modules focused on the teaching of English in the classroom.

The teacher should leave with practical skills and resources to use in their classes upon completion of these courses.

Teachers should check for funding options with Erasmus + as all courses were developed within the Erasmus+ framework.

These courses have been specifically designed for non-native teachers of English at secondary school level and help teachers to develop their classroom skills and to prepare their lessons effectively. The main focus is on practical ideas, communicative English in the classroom and materials development.
