The Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching English for Academic Purposes (TEAP) will provide you with the core competencies required for the design and delivery of effective teaching programmes in English for Academic Purposes (EAP), while furthering your knowledge across the range of key concepts and issues related to teaching EAP.

This course will develop the knowledge and skills required of you as an expert EAP practitioner. The modules you will study relate to - and are closely informed by - the competency framework set out by BALEAP, the leading professional organisation for EAP in the UK.

The course will provide you with:

-Enhanced employment prospects in the field through gaining a specialist postgraduate qualification and developing the knowledge and skills required of an expert EAP practitioner.
-Knowledge of academic practice, academic contexts, disciplinary practice, academic discourse, personal learning, development and autonomy.
-Understanding of EAP students' needs, student critical thinking and student autonomy.
-Skill in syllabus and programme development, text processing and text production, as well as in programme implementation and assessment practices.
-The ability to manage, reflect and enhance your own learning.
-Opportunities to extend your range of transferable skills, including your study and research skills.

This course is a unique platform for developing your experience and knowledge of TEAP because it combines the knowledge and experience of our School of Education in delivering distance learning courses with the skills of staff from our English Language Teaching Unit, who are active practitioners in teaching EAP.

Course Modules Include:

• Academic Practices: values, practices and conventions in university settings
• EAP Students: adapting to the new academic environment

The PgCert TEAP is for experienced teachers of English who wish to develop their career by gaining specialist skills and knowledge in teaching English for Academic Purposes (EAP).

During the course you learn to

  • recognise the differences between general English as a foreign language and English for academic purposes
  • extend your knowledge of literature and scholarship in EAP
  • use and critically evaluate live classroom observation instruments as a method of data collection
  • evaluate a range of current EAP materials both practically and theoretically
  • respond to the needs of individuals and groups of students and design a suitable EAP tasks for them using contemporary research
  • reflect on your own practice by planning and carrying out structured classroom-based investigations including peer observation
  • demonstrate an understanding of current academic issues and their appropriateness to your own professional teaching and learning context
  • compile the evidence to support an application for BALEAP accreditation

The course is a professional development qualification designed to meet the increasing global demand for well-qualified teachers in EAP. It carries sixty credits, which can be used towards other post-graduate qualifications.

On the first of two modules, you deepen your understanding of learners, cultures of learning, academic discourse and student transition through UK academia. You look in-depth at a range of issues in EAP including learner autonomy, specific-disciplines, argumentation and critical thinking.

On the second of the modules, you take aspects of your own classroom practice and explore and critically evaluate them using current methodology and applied research. By researching a significant aspect of your own teaching you gain a deep understanding of EAP pedagogy.

The scholarship and research skills you gain will allow you to improve the learning experiences of your students and influence the practice of your institution.

The TESOL Centre has thirty years of delivering postgraduate courses to working teachers. We have an established reputation for providing e-teacher education courses and today use Blackboard, a virtual learning environment.

Flexible and dynamic learning online enables you to fit your study around your own personal and professional commitments.

You can choose to further focus your Masters qualification through our programme streams. To qualify, you must choose the optional module and complete your dissertation in the same topic area.

Course Learning and Teaching

ELC MA programmes are delivered via lectures, seminars, practical sessions and micro-teaching sessions, giving students a solid grounding in both the theoretical and practical aspects of the field. In many cases, contact hours will be a mixture of these approaches (rather than, say, a session consisting solely of a two hour lecture). The balance will depend on the particular module, with some more suited to a lecture/seminar approach, others being of a more practical nature.

The focus throughout the programmes is on independent learning and student engagement, with students expected to participate in presentations, micro-teaching and the like. The average weekly number of contact hours over the first two terms is 12, with students filling the remaining time with reading, class preparation and assignments.

In addition, starting in the first term, students attend a series of dissertation sessions (typically 2 hours per fortnight) culminating in a poster conference in term 3. Students are assigned a dissertation supervisor, and can expect 3 or 4 meetings during term 3 and the summer.

  • Students each have an academic tutor, with whom they will meet on average once a term, and all staff have office hours.
