The Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) is an internationally recognised test from Cambridge ESOL about teaching English to speakers of other languages. It aims to increase teachers’ confidence and enhance job prospects by focusing on core teaching knowledge related to language, language use and the background to and practice of language teaching and learning. It tests candidates on their knowledge of how to teach English. It is not an English proficiency test. The test covers teaching methodology, the language of teaching, use of resources, lesson planning and classroom management methods.

It is a three-module course which will increase your teaching knowledge. Each module leads to an internationally recognised teaching qualification from the University of Cambridge. You should have an intermediate entry level of English. You will have a short interview to check your suitability for TKT. 

Who is it for?

If you are a teacher of English or you teach other subjects via English, this course can help you if you would like to improve your classroom practice and theoretical knowledge. This course is suitable for those who would like to take the TKT examinations, but can also be used as a standalone teacher training course.

This 60-hour course runs over ten weeks covering three modules:

  • Language and Language Teaching
  • Lesson Planning and use of resources for language teaching
  • Managing the teaching and learning process
