Why the Certificate Course in Academic Writing for English Teachers?

This certificate course in Academic Writing has been developed to help English language teachers with their written assignments in English at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Teachers who are not native speakers of English often find the written requirements of their courses very challenging. In addition to the vocabulary of academic English, they have to learn new conventions of style, referencing and format. Furthermore, some teachers during their university studies show lack of critical thinking skills, and sometimes failure to answer the specific question and their inability to develop answers logically. Issues around vocabulary, plagiarism and referencing skills are significant additional worries.

This course sets out to address these problems directly. It recognises that English language teachers are expected to write perfect English, accurate and effective language use is an essential skill for teaching professionals.

The skills taught in this course will empower English teachers to succeed in any college-level course or professional field. They will learn to conduct rigorous academic research and to express their ideas clearly in an academic format.
