Reflecting and evaluating classroom-based research and the impact of what we do in ELT training is the inspiration and motivation for this year’s “The Future of Training Conference”. Building on the successes of 2018, International House London will host this conference for a second year on the 9th of November. Industry leaders and teacher educators will come together for a day of interactive talks and discussions around a range of training strands and a plenary led by, ELTON award-winning, Nick Bilbrough, rounded up by an informal drink’s reception.

Founded in 1953, John and Brita Haycraft opened their first language school in Spain soon branching out to Central London in 1957. Establishing a need for English teachers in 1962, resulted in the birth of CELTA being the first qualification for teaching English as a second language.

Being at the forefront of innovation has always been of great importance to International London. At the 2018 conference, one of the key innovations presented was the flipped CELTA. In 2019 delegates will have the opportunity to hear from a panel of educators who have been experimenting with this theme facilitated by Adrian Underhill. There are a number of key strands which will be represented this year including: initial training courses such as the CELTA / TESOL, Delta, mentoring, working in different contexts such as China and Nepal, and specialisms such as CLIL and YL.

This is a not to miss event for teacher educators, researchers, practitioners, academic managers, trainers in training and those who wish to expand their knowledge in this field.
