Professional development

Teaching Skills and ELT

Intensive short courses drawing on the University of Oxford's academic excellence for a first-class professional development experience.

For teachers and academics looking to further their practice and develop new skills, and for organisations involved in continuing professional development who wish to improve the effectiveness of their courses and materials.

Our courses range from a two-week residential summer school held in Exeter College, in the heart of Oxford, to online tutoring. Participants come from all over the world. Our flexible, bespoke courses offer the opportunity to focus on precise professional needs within a desired timeframe.

Other courses of interest for Teachers

Teachers wishing to further their professional or personal development may be interested by the variety of courses offered on our international summer schools. Courses last between one and four weeks over the summer, and are available in a wide range of subjects, including: creative writing, literature, history, law, politics and theology – and many more. Our international summer schools provide a unique opportunity to live and study in the historical and scholarly environment of the university.
