Moderated courses

Led by a British Council moderator, and working with a group of teachers from around the world, these courses have fixed start dates. All our moderators are expert online teacher trainers with many years of experience in various teaching areas. We offer three moderated courses:

Primary Essentials

Primary Essentials is a development course for teachers of English teaching children of seven to eleven years old. The course is delivered as an online course in which a group of teachers and a trained moderator work together.

The course consists of six modules and lasts approximately 12 weeks. The modules includes readings, audio, videos of teachers in the classroom, interactive exercises, collaborative exercises, discussion forums and other activities. Participants are assessed at the end of each module. Participants who complete the course successfully receive a British Council certificate. We run several courses a year.
