Description and methodology:
This Expert qualification offers participants the chance to work towards achieving a holistic curriculum through English. Over the three individual partss which make up the Expert qualification, participants will be presented with a practical framework for teaching each of our focus subjects (natural science, social science, arts and crafts, music, performing arts, physical education and mathematics). These frameworks have been designed to meet the challenge of imparting these subjects through English and the need to establish attainable content and language learning outcomes. We will look at exploiting the natural links between these subjects and how aspects of each can be integrated into and developed in at least one other subject area and suggest practical ways how this can be done.
Each part will be organised in 2 modules and six blocks. Teaching will mainly take place through the Moodle learning management system and will also contain three intensive face-to-face sessions (one in each course).
Minimum level of English recommended: CEFR level B2. The programme will be in English throughout.
