Taking part in the Language Assistants programme this year? Now that you know your students and their needs, learn how to set up your own classroom activities (and how to keep them fresh over the course of the year) by registering for one of our training courses. 

We have two subsidised courses available exclusively to English Language Assistants:

  • Starting Teaching (£65, regular price £150): this moderated course is structured over seven weeks and will show you how to set up your classroom activities. The course begins on Wednesday 25 October. Please note that the British Council has the right to cancel the course if there are not sufficient applicants for it to be viable. 
  • 40 self-access modules across three categories (one-off payment of £50): go at your own pace and dip in and out of teaching topics as you need them, starting on Wednesday 18 October. You will have access to all of the modules for two years from the moment you sign up. This offer is valid until Friday 13 October. 

If you are interested in either of these, please complete the form below. Once you have submitted your application, you’ll receive instructions on how to pay. In the case that a parent or guardian is paying on your behalf, please ensure that they write your name in a note.
