Oxford Teachers’ Academy courses are suitable for teachers with an initial qualification and some teaching experience. Typically they provide 30 hours of core material spread over 8 sessions, with suggestions for further reading and interesting websites, videos, and blogs for each topic.

Participants have 12 months to access the course content on their computers anytime, anywhere with access to the internet. That means they can fit their study around teaching commitments, at a pace to suit their own learning style.

Session aims and topics have been mapped onto the EAQUALS Framework of Language Teacher Training and Development.

The structure of the session specifically facilitates self-study and helps all participants stay engaged through a media-rich, interactive learning experience, encouraging reflection, and providing suggestions of possible answers and solutions. Participants can also contribute to and create discussions and chat with other teachers taking the same course.

The courses are full of innovative ideas, approaches and theories. They offer plenty of food for thought, including chapters from Professional Development and Applied Linguistics books, video interviews with experts, and links to academic journals. To fully benefit from this rich resource, we recommend English proficiency level of at least B2 on the CEFR.

Completion of Oxford Teachers’ Academy courses is certified by Oxford University Department for Continuing Education. In order to receive a Certificate of Completion, course participants must submit an Evidence of Learning Journal on completion of the course. The Evidence of Learning Journal will be evaluated against the Evaluation criteria. If all criteria are met, participants will receive an electronic Certificate of Completion within six weeks of submitting the Evidence of Learning Journal
