Since 2017 this school has been a recognised Teacher Training Centre. Teacher training courses are held here during the academic year for our staff and state school English teachers. The seminars are based on applied linguistics and the teachers are provided with demonstrations and practical examples, to use in their lessons. We also run the IHCYLT (Certificate in Teaching Young Learners and Teenagers) course, a specific training course for teaching English to young learners. Before enrolling the teachers are advised to apply through “la piattaforma S.O.F.I.A”, in order to get the credits required by the Italian Ministry of Education. The teachers are also reminded that they can use the “carta del docente” both for the teacher training courses as well as for the General English courses.
