The Nature of the Trinity CertPT Course

Trinity’s Certificate for Practising Teachers is an in-service vocational teaching qualification listed at Level 6 on Ofqual’s Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). Designed around pedagogical outcomes rather than specific English language competency and requiring the completion of four practical teaching activities. The CertPT uses resource evaluation, creation and application as a vehicle to support the development of teachers’ knowledge and practice. Recognising that effective CPD stems from the identification of specific learning and teaching needs relevant to context, the CertPT provides the opportunity for teachers to take an evaluative approach to their needs, relative to their context.

Aims of the Course

To provide in-service teachers with a deeper understanding of theoretical and practical aspects of the Communicative Approach to create a more communicative and effective classroom.

1. critically evaluate lesson materials in line with learner needs;
2. apply pedagogical theory to practice;
3. employ efficient and effective teaching techniques to boost learner motivation and engagement; and
4. plan and reflect on development both past, present and future.
