Stay up to date

CPD plays a fundamental role in ensuring a high level of expertise and enables teachers and educators to keep their teaching skills and knowledge up-to-date. Methods are changing at a rapid pace and training is essential for all teachers to keep up with the challenge of the 21st century, its learners and their expectations. At NICILT our events focus on developing a wide variety of techniques, areas, skills and cater for teachers of all languages in the curriculum. They are tailored towards particular needs of teachers and are run in collaboration with a range of well-known organisations and bodies to provide the very latest information.
