Online Teacher Refresher Course (OTRC)

A series of short online courses designed for speakers of any language who teach, or plan to teach, English as a second language to children or adults. Minimum English level of participants is B2 on the CEFR.

Who’s it for?

Speakers of any language who teach, or plan to teach, English as a second language to children or adults. Minimum English level of participants is B2 on the CEFR.


Taught by Cambridge Assessment English approved teacher trainers, our online courses focus on improving your language teaching skills, with hands-on development of practical ideas and engaging materials to take back to your classroom. Following communicative methodologies, the courses will provide you with first-hand experience in how to make your classes more dynamic and interactive. Studying alongside teachers from different countries, if you’re a non-native English speaker you’ll have the opportunity to practise your English and share and discuss your teaching ideas and experiences.

Each of the six modules is a stand-alone course, completed in 5 days, and you can choose to complete just one or all six modules. Classes will be conducted in Zoom at specific times (all times are in GMT).


All teachers who enrol will benefit from:

  • 5 x 45’ live online lessons, one per day, Monday to Friday.
  • 12 months access to our online learning platform (for teachers who would like to practise their English)
