The IH TYLT is a professional development course for newly qualified and experienced English language teachers who are working or preparing to work with children and teenagers. It’s designed to help teachers gain a deeper understanding of the pedagogy for teaching this age group and acquire practical skills and ideas for effective teaching.

The IH TYLT is focused on learners between the age of 6 and 17. However, the pedagogy covered can be suitable for slightly younger or older learners.

Yes. The course is developed by the International House World Organisation and moderated by Cambridge Assessment English, part of the University of Cambridge. Certificates include the Cambridge logo, adding value and international recognition to the qualification.

The IH TYLT and the IH Intro to Young Learners are professional development courses focused on theory and practice in teaching younger learners.

 

The IH TYLT is a longer and more advanced course. It’s a formal qualification which includes assessment via teaching practice, observations and assignments. The course is developed by the International House World Organisation and moderated by Cambridge Assessment English, part of the University of Cambridge. The course is Pass or Fail, and successful participants receive a certificate with the Cambridge logo.

 

The IH Intro to Young Learners is a briefer and more basic programme. It’s a foundation course without formal assessment and it’s often taken as an extension to our Cambridge CELTA courses. The course is developed by our team of Cambridge-approved trainers and participants receive a certificate of attendance from International House Bangkok.

The IH TYLT is a professional development qualification for newly qualified and experienced English language teachers. It is designed for individuals who are working or preparing to work with younger learners. It is the ideal course if you have recently completed an initial TEFL qualification, such as the Cambridge CELTA, and would like exposure to this age group, or if you simply would like to enhance your skillset and acquire practical ideas for teaching children and adolescents. The course is also for teachers who need an official qualification to work in this particular context.

No. The course is designed for both experienced and newly qualified teachers with no experience in a young learners context.

Not necessarily. An initial TEFL teaching qualification is desirable only if you have little or no teaching experience. This is to ensure that you will be better able to relate theory and practice.

No. You should only have a proficient level of English, equivalent to CEFR C1 or above if English is not your first language.

The IH TYLT course covers a range of topics which give you a deeper understanding of theories of language learning, language learners, language skills and systems in a young learners context.


Sessions include input related to:

The assessment is based on your attendance and contribution to the course, and a portfolio comprising of weekly tasks, 3 hours of observed teaching and 2 reflective assignments, one focused on materials and another based on what you have learnt on the course. The portfolio is moderated by the IH Assessment Unit and the grading of the course is Pass or Fail.

Quite busy! Each day will include input sessions, workshops, tutor-assisted lesson planning, observed teaching, lesson observations and feedback sessions.

Since then, thousands of teachers have chosen us for their training and development. Today, we are still one of the organisations that set the standards in teacher education.
