TEFL CPD: How to host your first session (VIDEO)

Vanessa Mulcare is a graduate of the initial TEFL teacher training programme in London with SGI and is a long-serving member of the teaching staff.

Recently, Vanessa was invited by the Director of Studies to host her first Continuing Professional Development presentation as part of the regular sessions of the SGI CPD Club.

Teaching other teachers is a big undertaking in normal circumstances, but obviously it is even more nerve wracking for the uninitiated.

However, Vanessa had great success with her first session on the subject of ‘Keeping the conversation going (for all EFL students)’

Watch her video to hear much more about her session and pick up some very useful advice on how to prepare for your first CPD hosting role.

She also talks about the value of CPD in TEFL and how leading a session has boosted her own professional development.

Vanessa’s next step in her own CPD journey (apart from giving more talks) is to take the Trinity College TESOL Diploma, which is the advanced qualification for ELT teachers. At SGI, we provide this course as a distance learning programme to English teachers from all around the world.
If you are interested in also taking this course, please check out our TEFL Teaching qualifications website, or contact the SGI TESOL Training coordinator, Stephen Bell (sbell@stgeorges.co.uk or +44 207 1703), to discuss your options for career progression.
