Train to become an accredited Aviation English Teacher
The Teaching Methodology courses are designed to help suitable candidates become effective teachers of Aviation English. They are suitable for:
- English language professionals who want to specialise in Aviation English teaching or assessment,
- Aviation professionals who want to become Aviation English teachers or assessors
- Experienced Aviation English teachers who want to improve their teaching skills before applying for professional accreditation
Pre-requisites for English language professionals who want to become Aviation English teachers
English language teachers should have a recognised externally assessed teaching qualification such as CELTA or Trinity Cert TESOL, and at least some formal experience teaching adult learners in a large classroom environment. Candidates with a purely English language teaching background and very little exposure to aviation should enrol on an Aviation Familiarisation course before attending the Teaching Methodology course.
Pre-requisites for aviation professionals who want to become Aviation English teachers
Aviation professionals (typically this means aircraft engineers, pilots and air traffic control officers) should have several years of experience in a role directly related to flight operations or aircraft maintenance. Candidates with a purely aviation background and very little exposure to language teaching should enrol on on an externally assessed teaching course such as CELTA or Trinity Cert TESOL, or alternatively the Aviation English Organisation offer an internally assessed Certificate in Fundamental English Language Teaching (CEFELT) which is suitable for aviation professionals who want to learn the basics of language teaching.
