Description

The programme will give practicing teachers the opportunity to explore current issues in ELT, and to deepen their understanding of the theoretical and practical concerns that underlie their teaching. The programme benefits in particular from the CLCSs involvement in the development and implementation of two Council of Europe tools that are important in the current debate about language learning, teaching and assessment world-wide: the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and the European Language Portfolio.

Applicants should have a good honours degree (at least an upper second or equivalent; GPA of at least 3.2). Preference is given to applicants with relevant teaching experience. Students whose first language is not English are provided with a four-week induction programme in September to prepare them for postgraduate study in Ireland. All applicants are expected to show proficiency in at least one language other than their first language
