GLOBAL ENGLISH TEACHING ACADEMY

WHO WE ARE

The Global English Teaching Academy (GET Academy) is a world-class provider of initial teacher training courses for ELT.  The academy is run by a team of professional teachers and administrators that aim to offer a quality teacher training experiences to candidates from around the world. Our trainers bring a wealth of experience teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) to students both in the Austrian public education system and abroad. We aim to provide new EFL/ESOL teachers with not only the qualifications and theoretical knowledge to secure employment, but with the practical experience to succeed in this demanding industry. The program combines the academy’s in-house TEFL-YL certificate and Trinity College London’s globally-recognised CertTESOL.  Student teachers complete these two qualifications while teaching English to real Austrian students in real Austrian classrooms.

OUR AIM

The Global English Teaching (GET) Academy and its associated not-for-profit initiative Hello English! provide educational leadership in the field of language teaching. The GET Academy, in partnership with Hello English! promote a holistic approach to language learning based on the development of social and communicative competences in an immersive learning environment. The Academy leads the way in Initial Teacher Training for students of TEFL by putting theory into practice in real Austrian classrooms, while Hello English! connects native-speaking English teachers with Austrian children through project-based cultural and linguistic exchange.

The GET Academy’s TEFL (Trinity CertTESOL) Program is run in partnership with Trinity College London and in accordance with the Austrian national curriculum for English.

The TEFL (Trinity CertTESOL) Program is a 3 month, entry-level EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teaching placement. The program aims to provide student teachers with a strong set of practical teaching skills to aid them in the sound application of contemporary language teaching methodologies.

The approach to English language teaching emphasised on the program draws on a range of approaches and methodologies broadly considered to constitute best practice in contemporary language learning and teaching, especially for primary and secondary learners. This includes Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and Task-based Learning (TBL) within a communicative language teaching (CLT) framework.

The vocational nature of the program means that there is a strong focus on practical classroom experience. The GET Academy’s TEFL (Trinity CertTESOL) Program emphasises practical experience based on theoretical knowledge. The theory is gained from teacher training sessions at one of our two campus locations whilst the practical experience is a result of real-time interaction and teaching practice at Austrian state schools.  

Student teachers will visit dozens of schools, teach hundreds of students and accrue over 300 hundred hours of classroom experience including a minimum of 15 hours of observed (and assessed) teaching practice learn more.

What People Say

David Walley, Director of Studies

International Educational Centre, Moscow Region

‘A while ago I promised to update you on how one of your graduates was getting on in her first full-time teaching role. I have observed her a number of times and I have been extremely impressed. While much of that is down to her natural abilities as a teacher, your program has obviously given her an extremely sound grounding and I would say she’s ahead of where we might expect a typical graduate to be. I will certainly recommend your program to others who request guidance on choosing a teaching course!’
