What do CELTA and
SCD have in common?
Let’s start with the people who evaluate…
They are all experts in their field
They all observe practice over a period of time whilst
participants move from unskilled…
…..to often very professional levels of performance
They all act as mentors and offer praise, constructive
criticism and advice.
They all give a grade to the performance
Does all of
this sound
familiar??
Some ‘trainees’ are more naturally talented…….
…than others….
..and some learn more on the journey…
…but they all improve.
Is this a reasonable analogy?
What’s different?
What can we learn from a
comparison?

Standardisation is potentially a
problem:
• Between trainers
• Between centres
Grades – How many points are on your scale?
Officially?

The slides from my IATEFL talk 2015. Some thoughts about trainer persona and grading on CELTA courses.

Published in: Education
  • Hi Jo I really enjoyed your session in Manchester and it has stayed with me a lot - I've been thinking a lot recently about the role of the trainer when observing TP and giving feedback etc so I'm delighted to have tracked down your slides here. Many thanks again for the thought provoking session. And of course the added link to Strictly which is definitely my fave TV at this time of the year.
