Welcome to our online training page for teachers of English. This page replaces our previous site, which offered self-study modules.

Our short courses on FutureLearn are free for anyone to sign up to. 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. British Council educators will answer your questions on all of the courses.
