Professional development

Whether you are a teacher, a teacher educator, a manager, a researcher or a materials writer, your professional development and the professional development of the people you work with is an important part of your career and a vital element in maintaining your growth in the English Language Teaching profession.

Our professional development resources are organised by professional practice using the British Council’s Continuing Professional Development frameworks for teachers and teacher educators, two unique frameworks that address the skills and knowledge English language professionals need in their day-to-day working lives and throughout their careers.

If you are a newly-qualified teacher, or if you have been working in English language teaching for many years, you will find a wide range of useful resources and insight to help you continue your development pathway.
