English language teaching

Professional development for English language teachers

Gain skills and new techniques at all stages of your teaching career.

Join teachers from across the globe to share best practices and gain a wealth of ideas to use in your own classroom. You'll be taught by experienced international trainers, ELT course leaders and authors of teacher-training publications for OUP, Macmillan, Heinle Cengage and other publishers.

Both our summer programmes are held at historic Oxford colleges:

  • Oxford Teachers' Academy: professional development courses for English language teachers of primary and secondary learners. Aimed at teachers with between two and five years' experience.
  • English Language Teachers' Summer Seminar: a two-week full-time programme immersing you in English-language teaching alongside fellow teachers. Aimed at teachers with more than four years' experience.
