The AUK Center for Continuing Education (CCE) Launches its Teacher Development Programs

The Center for Continuing Education (CCE) at the American University of Kuwait (AUK) launched two new Teacher Training Certificate (TTC) programs which adopt interactive training tailored to suit the different levels of educational experience, and a Cambridge Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) Preparation Course. Each of the courses offered will focus on training participants in effective and essential teaching skills. Offering such opportunities for development goes in line with CCE's commitment to train professionals in Kuwait.

The first course in the TTC program is Educational Training. Throughout this course, participants are instructed on the latest teaching trends, covering the essentials of theory, practice and techniques currently used in the field of education. It is designed for new or prospective teachers who have little to no formal training in teaching.

"The course [TTC: Educational Training] is a highly interactive one where participants have the chance to practice everything practically and at the same time develop public speaking skills & presentation skills," said the TTC Instructor.

The second course is TTC: Educational Leadership Training, which trains participants to develop curricula and provide mentoring, as well as train them in many other areas that help them perfect their leadership skills. Educational Leadership Training is created for experienced teachers and administrators who are looking to further their careers in the field of education.

The CCE also offers the Cambridge Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) preparation course, which is designed to test candidates' knowledge of concepts relating to language and language use, and language education. The TKT is developed by Cambridge ESOL for teachers of English to speakers of other languages. This preparation course caters to new and practicing teachers who are preparing for initial training qualifications, as well as those on in-service training programs, and prepares them for the TKT.

Upon successful completion of any of the courses offered by the CCE, participants will receive professional certificates of completion.

"We are passionate about the learning cycle and catering for teachers' development is at the heart of the center for continuing education mission. Since 2016, we have moved teacher development beyond simple workshops and expanded it into a more robust system of continuing education courses. In order to advance teachers in their careers, teachers can seek out professional development opportunities at our center which are ongoing and aligned with standards and assessments; this will aid them in yielding a systematic growth and development in the teaching profession," explained Buthaina Al-Khubaizi, CCE Director.
