On 23 April Phoenix Academy's Institute of Teaching Excellence (ITE) hosted a networking evening for Perth TESOL Teacher Trainers.
Beth Grant and Robert Fletcher who are both recognised DELTA trainers in the UK were invited to give their views on TESOL hot topics.
While Beth talked about general trends in teacher training and discussed the TESOL Teacher Training, Robert discussed General English (ELICOS) topics including CLIL as it has been taken up by the European community.
Phoenix Academy Principal, Robynne Walsh, noticing a lack of high-level professional development opportunities for senior teachers and trainers, introduced this new event on the academic calendar and suggested to make a regular event.
Positive feedback from the participants suggests that similar networking evenings might take place again in future, and could be open to teacher trainers from all over Australia and overseas.
