Face-to-Face Continuous Professional Development Courses at International House Doha
There are several ways to participate in Face-to-Face professional development at IH Doha. You can choose from either a short, intensive course to help you prepare for a teaching qualification exam (DELTA M1 Prep Course), a one-day-a-week course over a few weeks that fits easily into your busy schedule (TKC), or a 4-week full-time or 10-week part-time course for the world-recognised Cambridge teaching qualification (CELTA).
Our Teaching Knowledge Course (TKC) gives you an insight into the techniques and methodology behind modern English Language Teaching. We also call this the Pre-CELTA course because it is excellent preparation for the CELTA, giving you a head start over your classmates.
If you’re looking to improve your awareness of English grammar before embarking on a more challenging course like the CELTA, try our IH Language Awareness Course. This course is run by qualified and experienced teacher trainers and will be delivered over 21 hours on 2 weekday evenings for 7 weeks, with homework and a written assignment.
Our most popular face-to-face teaching qualification course is the CELTA. Here you will receive more in-depth training with a focus on teaching practice which is a key element when preparing to be an English language teacher. You will have input sessions demonstrating a variety of teaching methods and technology in the classroom environment, receive plenty of support from fellow trainees and tutors and complete at least six hours of observed teaching practice, which will build your confidence via experience and contact with real students.
