You will be assessed throughout the course, with no final examination. An external assessor, appointed by Cambridge English, moderates each course. There are two components of assessment:
Teaching practice The course is very practical in nature with a heavy emphasis placed on performance in observed and assessed teaching practice sessions. Candidates teach six hours of assessed lessons over eight to nine lessons. Teaching practice is completed at two different levels with candidates teaching volunteer groups of students. Assessment is based on overall performance at the end of the 6 hours.
Written assignments There are four written assignments with a total word count of 3000 words: one focusing on adult learning; one on the language system of English; one on language skills; and one on classroom teaching.
