Teach English

Training teachers in Singapore since 1968

British Council is highly regarded for its teacher training work in Singapore and worldwide. Our courses and workshops give you the satisfaction of professional development in the key areas of teaching, and bring with them the British Council assurance of quality.

The Teacher Development Centre (TDC) has a long history of Teacher Training in Singapore. We partner MOE on projects, such as the 'Niches of Excellence' and 'Whole School Approach to English' programmes. We also provide consultation on all aspects of English Language teaching.

Let us help you become a new, or better teacher. All our courses are interactive and hands-on, so you learn by doing..
