Teacher of the 21st century

 

Part I: I teach little ones and gain new qualifications

On 1 August 2017 the Ministry of National Education issued a regulation which requires all English teachers in early childhood education without a degree in English studies to confirm their linguistic qualifications. The final date to obtain the certificate is 31 August 2020.

What does this regulation mean for early childhood education teachers? How to meet this challenge? How to prepare for a chosen examination by yourself? Maciej Kwiatkowski will try to answer all these questions. He will also provide more details about assessing your abilities, planning your studying, gathering materials and preparing your own exam strategy.
