English language teacher workshops

English and Methodology for TESOL* Purposes (EMTP) is designed and delivered by ICTE-UQ for English language teachers who have a language background other than English.

This workshop is ideal for English language teachers at primary and secondary levels, and representatives from governmental Boards of Education.

The workshop will provide opportunities to find out more about the highly successful EMTP program, including:

  • creative and innovative methodology and techniques for teaching English
  • new resources and material for use in the classroom
  • improve your own English language skills.

For more information about the EMTP program, watch our latest video here or download the information flyer in English or Japanese.

“The combination of English skills and teaching techniques included in the EMTP program has been very valuable for me. I have been able to learn more about lesson planning and other skills and how to apply these to my own teaching. Being in an English speaking environment has also been important for me and I have had the opportunity to meet fellow English language teachers from around the world and to discuss similarities and differences in our teaching styles. This course has given me new ideas for my teaching and more confidence in my own English language skills”.
