What is the workload?
The extensive, part-time teaching practice in your centre takes place between January and May.
Intensive, full-time attendance in Cadiz in May (4 weeks) includes teaching practice and lesson preparation, preparing for the phonology interview and exam revision of around 20 hours a week.
The distance component is compatible with full-time teaching, though we recommend you aim to reduce your teaching commitments if you can.
Why should I do the course here?
The on-line part of the course includes plenty of opportunities for interaction. Our aim is to encourage support and sharing of ideas between participants. To achieve this, we make sure that you are in regular live contact with other course members, working in groups and pairs to complete tasks. We also hold live webinars on modules and have 1-2-1 tutorials throughout the course so you can discuss your progress with a tutor.
We make use of the latest technology to give you the chance to see and hear your colleagues, and use a virtual classroom to develop discussions on teaching and learning.
Preparing for the Diploma is demanding and you will feel under pressure at times. We aim to reduce unnecessary stress as much as possible by making sure you have the personal support you need and the focus and direction necessary to ensure your work time is well spent.
What do we do in the face-to-face block?
