Having overcome the once distant goal of access to education within the region, Gulf States now face a greater challenge: that of raising the quality of education imparted in its schools and educational establishments. To overcome this challenge, there must be an improvement in the skills of teachers and the management of the overall performance of the school system.
By supporting teachers with the right tools and skills required to conduct themselves effectively within the learning environment, Eton Institute aims to raise the quality of education in the region to international standards, through a series of Teacher Training and Development courses and workshops.
The educational topics offered by Eton Institute vary and span across different levels and subject domains, including Leadership and Management, Curriculum Development, Transformational Learning, Classroom Organisation and Time Management. In addition, Eton Institute offers internationally recognised teacher training certifications such as TESOL and TFL, approved and accredited by City and Guilds, the premier authority for vocational qualifications, with over 10,000 centres worldwide and headquartered in the UK.
Sue Brett, Head of Academic Studies, Eton Institute, said: “The teacher training programmes are facilitated by highly qualified trainers, employing modern, innovative learning techniques. The training is developed for schools and training centres, expected to enhance the skills of their teachers and to meet international standards and internal assessment objectives. We offer complimentary consultations to identify teaching development needs, allowing us to tailor the training to the specific requirements and ensure that the training has an impact in the classroom.”
The workshops and TESOL/TFL qualifications are aimed at refreshing and developing skills using current trends and innovations in education. The TESOL / TFL qualifications are conducted through intensive, extended and online learning platforms. TESOL certification is for candidates interested in ‘Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages’, whereas the TFL course certification is for candidates interested in ‘Teaching a Foreign Language’ other than English.
Successful TESOL / TFL participants will receive internationally recognised certification from Eton Institute as well as the ACE qualification from City and Guilds, putting them at the top of the pool of teaching candidates worldwide and delivering quality education in schools across the region.
