10,000 online English classes in Valencia

//15/01/20
The Conselleria de Educación, Cultura y Deporte in Valencia has announced 10,000 places for online English classes. The courses are open to non-university teaching staff and teachers will have until the end of this month to sign up.

The initiative forms part of the Programa de Formación en Lenguas Extranjeras and places are available to teachers in publically funded schools and teachers seeking work through the Conselleria.

The courses aim to improve teachers’ linguistic competence in order to prepare them for giving classes in English. The Conselleria are promoting teacher training in English as part of the bilingual education model which began this year in the second stage of Infant Education.

Teachers can apply for the courses throughout January on the Conselleria web page. They will cover all levels of the CEF from A1 to C2 and will take place between 16 February and 31 December. You can find more information here.
