We offer a number of different training courses, either on FutureLearn or our British Council teacher development platform. 

The short courses on FutureLearn are free for anyone to sign up to for a seven-day trial. The courses are three or four weeks long and there are a range of topics, from assessing learners to planning a great lesson. Study at your own pace and communicate with other teachers from all over the world.

The short courses on our teacher development platform are free and run on specific dates during the year.
