Course requirements and grading
|Assessment by course trainers, oral and written, is ongoing and cumulative. Course trainers may require timely resubmission of work that fails to meet course standards. To receive a passing grade trainees must:|
|Attend all required parts of the course, actively participate||Trainees should participate in all workshops and all required|
teaching practice sessions. Absence is only allowed in exceptional cases
and trainees must make up for any missed sessions.
|Plan and conduct lessons||Course trainers will assess your lesson plan as well as the delivery of each lesson. There will be partial grades for each of the lesson components|
as well as an overall grade and overall written comment indicating the degree
of acceptability (or not) of the lesson as a whole. Throughout the course trainees should demonstrate progress in lessons, as this is a very important factor to the final grade.
|Complete 4 assignments and all homework|
|Observe at least 7 lessons of the TEFL Teaching practice and 2 lessons of experienced EFL teachers||Apart from teaching their own lessons, trainees will also attend lessons of their fellow TEFL trainees and lessons of senior teachers working in EDUA Group.|

85 % to pass the test. If a trainee’s score is lower than 85 %, he/she will have a second attempt at the test in Week 4 of the course.
|Be professional||Professionalism is one of the key characteristics of a good teacher. Trainees should conduct themselves in a professional way towards trainers, trainees, the school staff and Czech students throughout the entire course.|
