The Cambridge TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test) is for speakers of any language who teach, or want to teach, primary, secondary or adult students. Whatever your background and teaching experience, the TKT is designed to develop your knowledge of teaching language, resources, lesson planning and methodology. It is divided into three modules, each of which is assessed by an 80-minute exam consisting of 80 multiple-choice questions. The TKT is a formal qualification that is recognised all over the world, as it is awarded by Cambridge ESOL, part of the University of Cambridge.
ITTC offers courses in TKT Modules 1, 2 & 3 to groups by arrangement both here in the UK and overseas. Your school or organisation can contact us for information on dates and fees.
You may also receive Erasmus+ funding for the course through your school or organisation.
