Course overview

There is growing demand for English Language teachers both within the UK and overseas, and this exciting degree is designed to help meet that demand by producing graduates with the knowledge and practical skills required to take up a variety of roles within a number of professional environments. Sharing themes with our BA (Hons) English Language and English Language Teaching course, this course has a strong vocational focus and incorporates the internationally recognised UCLES/RSA CELTA qualification.

In the practice modules you will take part in supervised lesson planning and observed teaching practice with feedback from experienced CELTA tutors. It is important to note that the UCLES/RSA CELTA component has to be completed in one year. The English as a Foreign Language side of the course offers a comprehensive course of study, one that covers not just English Language development, but also the valuable transferable skills of debating, presenting and negotiating. You will also have the opportunity to engage critically with some of the key issues of the political, economic, historical and cultural background of the UK and Europe. This course offers a balance of theoretical and applied practical language work.

All assessments will be in accordance with the learning outcomes and the range will provide both formative (eg non-assessed discussions and presentations, language laboratory work, class exercises etc) and summative (eg unseen examinations, in-class assessments, essays, portfolios, assessed seminar presentation etc) functions.

In the majority of modules, a combination of assessment types is used to ensure that you are able to demonstrate your theoretical knowledge of and engagement with a topic, but usually also include a more practical element. For example, the assessment for a module may consist of a traditional essay in which you will discuss a particular theoretical approach, but also a data analysis exercise which allows you to demonstrate that they are able to apply their knowledge in the 'real world', and to link theory with practice. For those doing the CELTA component, the teaching practice assessment is based on classroom-related written assignments and continuous assessment of lesson plans.

Dedication: full-time.
