This is a fantastic opportunity for native speakers of various languages to participate in professional tutor training and language certification at one of only two UK universities accredited by EUROLTA.
23 August - 10 September 2021
Being a language tutor is an extremely rewarding experience, so if you are passionate about sharing your language and culture, we would love you to join us this summer.
Trainee language tutors will receive:
- Tutor training certificate in three weeks
- An exciting opportunity to pass on your language and cultural knowledge
- Opportunities for paid work on successful completion of the course
Your tutor training will cover topics such as student-centred learning, class dynamics and interaction. You will also develop and improve your communication, leadership, and organisation skills. In turn this will improve your understanding and knowledge of other cultures.
How will this course be taught
You will be guided and supported by staff who are passionate about the subjects they research and teach. We have experts across a whole range of disciplines including business, engineering, communications, English, media, emerging technology, sustainability, health, and psychology.
The classes draw on the latest information and research, are interactive, and focus on developing your knowledge and English language skills (if necessary). The academic sessions are interactive and allow you to learn from different perspectives.
Our courses are based on four principles:
- course content from leading academics and industry experts;
- industry specific fieldtrips which will be embedded into the programmes;
- cultural and social activities allowing development of transferable skills;
- pastoral care and ongoing support throughout the programme.
After successful completion of your course(s) you will receive an official Coventry University transcript with individual grades for each course* and a certificate of attendance. The certificate of attendance is presented in the last week of your coursework and the transcript will be sent to you or your home university in September.
