Call for trainers

23rd November 2021

IATEFL is looking for a small number of teacher trainers to run teacher development sessions as part of an online training day IATEFL plans to run for both members and non-members on 26 January 2022.

We are looking for trainers to deliver 2 x 90 minutes sessions around a selected theme. The sessions will be offered twice, once in a UK morning slot and then again the same afternoon. The trainer must be available to present both sessions. The sessions will be delivered using the Zoom platform. The sessions should have a practical, interactive focus utilising a workshop approach to training. Both sessions should explicitly focus on the trainer’s selected area.

While IATEFL is open to suggestions for topic areas, some possible areas are:

  • Pronunciation refresher masterclass
  • Teaching using technology in low resource settings
  • Teaching large classes
  • 21st century English / Englishes
  • Refreshing your skills as an EAP teacher
  • Dealing with multilevel classes
  • My role(s) as a teacher

Aside from leading the sessions, there is an expectation that the trainer will create media for use in the session i.e. PowerPoint, Handouts and / or worksheets. The copyright for such materials will be shared with IATEFL for the purposes of this event, and the materials will be circulated to participants who will also receive a link to the recording and a certificate. In return IATEFL will pay a fee of £500.

Who we are looking for?

Experienced ELT teacher trainers within the particular topic areas.  While trainers need not be members of IATEFL preference will be given to those that are. Trainers working for publishing companies are welcome to apply but must be aware that the sessions should not have an overt publisher or product focus. In addition to the delivery day, the trainer must be available mid-December for a briefing as well as early-January for progress check-ins.

Applications will be selected through a blind recruitment process by an IATEFL selection committee. If you are interested in applying, please complete the from here.

The deadline for applications is 10 December 2021.
