The Ministry of Education’s English Opens Doors Program, in collaboration with the British Council (BC), is pleased to announce the first call for TP Training in 2021. This online course is directed at English teachers working in Technical-Professional schools, with the main objective of providing methodological updates for teaching English in a technical-professional context, thereby contributing to the strengthening of teaching and learning English in EMTP.
What is TP Training?
It is an e-learning course based on CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) in which participants will work with a BC moderator as well as other course participants in a cooperative and collaborative way.
Each module has three units, and, in each unit, there are several tasks: online activities, forum discussions, synchronous meetings, and assignments etc.
In the forum discussions and in the live meetings, participants will interact with each other experiencing the methodology which underpins the whole course, including the communicative approach and reflective practice.
After the online course is finished, participants are invited to go further to put into practice what they have learnt during the course and share TP projects with teachers from all over the country, in a final event called “Good Practice Day”. (Follow-up activity)
