If you are looking to improve your skills in teaching, either by taking a short course, or maybe by enrolling on a distance programme, then first of all try our short quiz below to see where you are on our English Language Teaching professional development scale.
This quiz is based on the Cambridge English Teaching Framework and you can access the full version of the quiz here https://tracker.cambridgeenglish.org/
In the framework, there are four stages of teacher development, from Foundation to Expert, and five categories of teaching knowledge and skills. Each category describes the key competencies for effective teaching at each stage. The aim of the framework is twofold. It is there to both help teachers to identify where they are in their professional career, and to help teachers and their employers to think about where to go next and identify development activities to get there.
There are five Categories, representing areas of skill and ability.
