Webinars, workshops, conferences

We would like to invite teachers of English to visit our educational events, which are regularly held in our centre as well as online, on a paid-for basis and free of charge.

At our webinars, workshops and conferences, where we explore up-to-date and important teaching topics, as well as share our experience and the latest news from the ELT world.

We also keep track of all the updates in ELT and would love to share them with you.

Who is it for?

We offer professional development for teachers of different qualification levels, interests and teaching areas, and would gladly welcome you in our training sessions and conferences if you are:

  • Freelance teachers
  • University and college teachers
  • Teachers from private and public schools
  • Pre-school teachers
  • Representatives of any public institutions

All our events are held in English, so we recommend registering for them if your level of English is Intermediate or above.

For teachers who do not have an international qualification yet (for instance, CELTA or DELTA) — our webinars and workshops will help you gain the impression of the way we work and the kind of content our experienced trainers are eager to provide.

For experienced teachers with international qualifications, it will be interesting to look at the research into important and controversial issues in teaching done by our professional trainers.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a commitment that our team of teachers and trainers stick to, and we hope that you will share this attitude with us.

We invite teachers to our events
