English teachers can win a top professional development course in Cambridge this summer by taking part in a new competition.
The University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL) and Bell are inviting teachers to submit ideas and tips about how they successfully prepare English language exam candidates as part of The Cambridge English Teachers’ Competition 2012. The competition is open to teachers of selected Cambridge English exams and four winners will receive a place on a two-week residential teacher development course at Bell Teacher Campus based at Homerton College, part of the University of Cambridge, from 1 – 14 July 2012.
“We’re looking to acknowledge the fresh ideas that teachers have for helping their students prepare for their language exams,” explains Simon Wright, Marketing Manager at Cambridge ESOL. “The competition has been designed to reward teachers who go that extra mile when preparing candidates for Cambridge English exams. Exam preparation ideas should be fresh, creative and practical and I’m sure the standard of entries will be very high.”
Tony Anderson, Director of Sales and Marketing at Bell, adds: “Bell understands the importance of preparing students effectively for a range of qualifications. Our teacher development courses encourage quality, ingenuity and dedication in English language teaching around the world. We look forward to welcoming teachers to Bell Teacher Campus to further enhance their language methodology and teaching skills which they can apply in their own classrooms.”
