Teaching English for Academic Purposes (TEAP)

In 2021, the Centre for Academic Language and Development will be running several one-week intensive TEAP courses. Please select a course suitable to your experience level.

All TEAP courses in 2021 will run online only.

Course options

12 to 16 April 2021

We are flexible regarding the level of this course and will adjust the course according to the needs of the group. For instance, we could explore a range of BALEAP criteria, appropriate to Associate Fellow, Fellow or Senior Fellow.

7 to 11 June 2021

This course will focus on the core elements (C1 and C2) of teaching practice, assessment and feedback, leading to a claim for Associate Fellow. It is suitable for people with less EAP experience – perhaps a pre-sessional summer programme – or some non-EAP teaching experience.

5 to 9 July 2021

This course will focus on the core elements (C1 and C2) of teaching practice, assessment and feedback, leading to a claim for Associate Fellow. It is suitable for people with less EAP experience – perhaps a pre-sessional summer programme – or some non-EAP teaching experience.

Group size

For each course, the group size will be 16 people maximum. We will need a minimum of six people in order to run the course.

We welcome participants from a range of different backgrounds. 

Structure and delivery

These intensive courses will run entirely online. They will consist of both guided independent study and timetabled online sessions.

The course structure allows for flexibility around work and family commitments. However, participants will need to commit to 40 hours of work, much of it collaborative. They will also need to attend 15 hours of timetabled online sessions.

There will be no teaching practice. Teaching observation will be done using a video clip.

Assessment

These courses will not be assessed. Participants will receive a certificate of completion.

How to apply

To apply, please send a CV and covering letter to teap-enquiries@bristol.ac.uk, explaining why you want to do the course at this point in your career.

We will begin processing applications in January 2021.

Accommodation

Accommodation is not available through the university.

Cost

Each TEAP course listed for 2021 costs £400. We won’t ask you to print or buy books for this course.
