IH Business English Teaching Certificate
The International House Business English Teaching Level 1 course (BET 1) is a 50 hour course consisting of 30 hours of input and 20 hours of homework (reading or action research) tasks, plus a post-course reflection. It is aimed at either newly-qualified teachers (post-CELTA/IHCTL) or more experienced teachers who are new to teaching Business English. Successful completion of the course will earn participants an IHWO certificate and also prepare them to take the LCCI FTBE exam (London Chamber of Commerce and Industry Further Certificate for Teachers of Business English) should they wish further accreditation.
The course has three strands:
- Basic Business Awareness
- Professional Skills
- Methodology & Materials
The course aims to raise participants’ awareness of business topics, dealing with students as clients, and teaching business language within a business context.
