Teachers Courses

Teachers choose Edinburgh School of English to be exposed to new ideas and techniques, to meet colleagues from round the world and share practice, and to develop professionally in a supportive and inspiring learning environment. 

Our courses are aimed at teachers who are engaged in planning and/or delivering ELT programmes. The courses provide training for teachers whose first language is not English. 

European Union nationals can apply for funding for Edinburgh School of English courses through Erasmus Plus. Our PIC code is 944933164.
