TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test) – Cambridge Assessment

What is TKT?

The Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) is an internationally recognised test from Cambridge ESOL about teaching English to speakers of other languages. It aims to increase teachers’ confidence and enhance job prospects by focusing on core teaching knowledge related to language, language use and the background to and practice of language teaching and learning. It tests candidates on their knowledge of how to teach English. It is not an English proficiency test, that is why there is not a pass/ fail result, but you will receive a certificate which will represent your performance in terms of bands. The test covers teaching methodology, the language of teaching, use of resources, lesson planning and classroom management methods.

There are five TKT certificates available, three core modules, 1, 2 and 3; and two specialist ones, Young Learners and CLIL. Each module leads to an internationally recognised teaching qualification from the University of Cambridge. You can sit for them one by one or all together on the same call. You should have at least an intermediate entry level of English to cope with the test contents.

Who is it for?

If you are a teacher of English or you teach other subjects via English, this course can help you if you would like to improve your classroom practice and theoretical knowledge. This course is suitable for those who would like to take the TKT examinations, but can also be used as a standalone teacher training course.

How is the course organized?

Module 1 is divided in four parts, modules 2 and 3 are divided in three parts each as it is shown in the table. You can cover the contents at your own pace, according to time available and previous knowledge on the subject, but a month is recommended for each of the parts. All in all, the contents of the three modules should be able to be covered in ten months approximately.
