Cert IBET - Teaching Business English

The Certificate in International Business English Training (Cert IBET) is a course for English teachers who wish to learn more about teaching Business English and who wish to gain an internationally-recognised qualification in this area. Course participants should already have an initial English teaching qualification like CELTA. It can be taken both by people who have experience of teaching Business English and also people who have never taught Business English before, but would like to do so in the future. Cert IBET is validated by English UK and is moderated by Language Cert. All of DC Teacher Training's Cert IBET trainers are Cambridge-approved CELTA trainers who have experience of working both in English language teaching and training as well as experience of working in corporate roles. The course consists of 50 hours of live input on Zoom and is assessed by means of one written assignment of 3000 - 4000 words.
