Course Organisation
The course cycle comprises 90 hours of seminar  work, as well as an additional hours of self-access study. It is usually organised as a part-time course during the school year.  

Who can apply to attend
All applicants must have completed their secondary level education and hold a Recognised Certificate of Proficiency or the equivalent level of English. This is determined by an internally set examination and personal interview.

Candidates whose pre-course examination results indicate a level of English equivalent to or below Cambridge Proficiency grade C, are advised to attend this Language Awareness Course first, with a view to improving their level as required for obtaining an Advanced Certificate demonstrating a satisfactory level of performance for professional use in the classroom (grade B and above).

The course is also suitable for native speakers of English who wish to pursue a career as teacher of English but who have no formal education in English and would like to acquire a systematic and analytical knowledge of their own language.

Trainees who have attended this course DO NOT need to attend Module II to prepare for ASEP examinations.
 
The Language Awareness course is also excellent as language preparation for those who wish to later join full methodology courses such as the Cambridge CELTA or the Cambridge DELTA Diploma or the Diploma in Translation Course or, even, to prepare for academic work in an English speaking university.
