The Association for the Promotion of Quality in Tesol Education (QuiTE) has issued a guide to choosing an initial teacher training course. In an article in the Guardian Weekly, QuiTE urges prospective English language teachers to select a good quality training programme before they start their teaching careers, http://www.guardianweekly.co.uk/?page=editorial&id=1038&catID=18.
QuiTE hopes that the document, Choosing Your First English Language Teacher Training Course, will become a benchmark both for people thinking about becoming teachers and for schools that employ them. English UK is a member of QuiTE and along with a wide range of other influential ELT institutions have developed a comprehensive checklist advising prospective trainees to ask who the course is accredited by and what this entails.
