Business English has been on increasing demand for several years and professionals with a sound knowledge of the world of business and associated teaching methodologies are coveted individuals.
The LCCIE First Certificate for Teachers of Business English is an advanced qualification awarded by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry International Qualifications (LCCI IQ) and a worldwide recognized certificate. Holders of this qualification on top of an initial TEFL or TESOL certificate are ideal candidates for great many teaching positions around the globe that require versatile teachers who are qualified to teach both General and Business English.
At the end of the course successful candidates receive two certificates:
The Anglo Centres Further Certificate in Teaching Business English
The LCCIE First Certificate for Teachers of Business English.
In order to obtain the LCCIE FTBE certificate candidates will need to take an official examination. Exams can be taken at any of the examination centres that LCCIE have worldwide.
Successful candidates have the option to supplement this online course with a Teaching Practice Certificate and thus gain the Advanced Certificate in Teaching English for Business.
This further TBE qualification is offered in two versions:
Online: Course participants do the course electronically on their own time at their own pace and take the exam at their nearest LCCIE centre. The course includes continual support from a personal tutor and specific exam preparation sessions.
3-Day intensive: This takes places over the course of 3 days in our centre in Tarragona, Spain. Input is delivered in a series of practical workshops where the onus is on interaction and active candidate participation. The course includes specific exam preparation.
The aims of this syllabus are to enable candidates to develop a basic knowledge and understanding of the Teaching Business English (TBE) profession in order to:
2) Identify the methodologies that are most effective in the Business English classroom
3) Demonstrate an understanding of the basic business concepts and practices with which the Business English teacher is expected to be familiar.
The course is divided into three main topics:
1 Teaching Business English (TBE) professional skills (e.g. needs analysis, syllabus/course design etc)
2 TBE methodologies (e.g. different approaches, classroom management, use of materials etc)
3 Basic business concepts and practices (e.g. business terminology, letter layout etc)
The examination consists of 3 Sections: in Section A there will be one extended question on topic 1, in Section B there will be one extended question on topic 2, and in Section C candidates will choose 2 out of 3 shorter questions on topic 3. Candidates may be expected to draw upon related syllabus topics when answering the questions.
