There is an increasing demand for primary, secondary and tertiary teachers with up-to-date qualifications and improved skills in teaching English. Courses combine specialised English language development, English language teaching methodology and teaching practice. This enables you to improve your own English language skills, as well as developing your English language teaching skills.

Courses can be run in Australia, in your own country, or a combination of both. All courses are designed according to the needs of the group and can be of any length.

Some of Curtin’s previous clients include:

  • Putuo District, Shanghai City, China; English Teacher Training Program
