In 2020 the Centre for Academic Language and Development at the University of Bristol will be running three one-week intensive TEAP courses with slightly different target audiences.
January 6 -10: we particularly welcome those with more EAP experience who would like to work toward the BALEAP TEAP Fellow or Senior Fellow. The 5 strands (A-E) of the BALEAP TEAP competencies will be addressed.
March 30 – April 3: we are flexible regarding the level of this course and will adjust the course according to the needs of the group
June 8- 12: we particularly welcome those with less EAP experience – perhaps a pre-sessional summer programme or some non-EAP teaching experience. This course will focus more on the core elements (C1 & C2) of teaching practice, assessment and feedback leading to a claim for Associate Fellow
In all cases the group size will be kept to around 14-16 and we welcome participants from a range of different backgrounds.
The scheme of work covers a 5-day week from 9:00 -5:00 and there will be preparation tasks and reading outside of those hours. It really is intensive!
There is no teaching practice. Teaching observation will be done using a video clip.
The course is not assessed. Participants will receive a certificate of completion.
Accommodation is not available through the university.
The registration fee of £400 will be payable through the University of Bristol online shop. Application can made through email to email@example.com from September 2019.

The Certificate in Teaching English for Academic Purposes has been created by Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University to advance the very best practice in EAP in higher education in China and beyond. It is the only qualification of its type in China and is designed for employers to recognise a teacher’s excellence in the field. It is a practical certificate that will have a direct impact on a teacher’s understanding of EAP and their classroom practice.

The programme is intended for those working in English-medium institutions or programmes, whether you work in wider contexts where English is a first or additional language.
