Product Description

Training the Trainer – A Resource Book for ELT Professionals is part of the new Garnet Teaching Skills Kit [TSK] series of teacher handbooks. Each book in the TSK series will follow a narrative from the point of view of the teacher, to support and inform ELT teachers in their profession.

Pedagogical reform and school improvement around the world is dependent upon the quality of teacher education. ELT is very often at the heart of these reforms, so ELT professional development plays a vital role, underpinned by the skills of the teacher trainers.

High quality training of teacher trainers provides sustainability and localisation, the cornerstones of many educational reforms around the world, and major elements of institutional strengthening.

This book has been written to support institutions with the design, development and implementation of train-the trainer courses in the context of ELT professional development. While not a complete train-the-trainer course in itself, the book comprises guidelines on course design and delivery, with ‘out of the box’ materials in the photocopiable resource pack that can be adapted to the needs of a specific institution.

As well as institutions, the book will be of interest to current and prospective teacher trainers.
