On the 26th of December 2017, Ken Li, Senior Business Development Manager of East Asia of Cambridge English Language Assessment, paid a visit to Unibridge International Education and Senior Education and Teaching Research Academy(SETRA). Ken’s visit is intended to supervise the implementation of TKT project in SETRA which was authorised as the Cambridge English examination centre in early 2017. During the visit, Ken gave a professional skills training for SETRA teachers and the project department. Some of SETRA teachers have already passed CELTA this year. This training helped deepen their knowledge of Cambridge English courses and assessment system.
At the beginning of the training, Ken, as a representative of Cambridge English Language Assessment, awarded a TKT certificate to Su Bing, one of the advanced SETRA teachers. Up till now, there have been six English teachers in SETRA who successfully completed the Train the Trainer course, which means they are qualified to train teachers on the CELT-P and CELT-S courses. With the combined effort of all SETRA teachers, SETRA is prepared to embrace a bright future in English teacher training.

The Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) is an internationally recognised test from Cambridge ESOL about teaching English to speakers of other languages. It is suitable if you are teaching primary, secondary or adult learners. TKT aims to increase your confidence and enhance job prospects by focusing on core teaching knowledge related to language, language use and the background to and practice of language teaching and learning.
CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) is an initial teacher training qualification for teaching English as a second or foreign language. It is provided by Cambridge English Language Assessment through authorised Cambridge English Teaching Qualification centres. CELTA focuses on teaching adult learners, but many of the skills and techniques apply to teaching young learners as well. CELTA has been accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority. It is now considered to be an international benchmark English language teaching certification and the only qualification accepted by many language schools around the world.
Senior Education and Teaching Research Academy(SETRA) was authorised as the Cambridge English examination centre in March 2017. Now there are over 2,800 centres in 130 countries around the world. Teachers who intend to take Cambridge English exam will need to register directly with an authorised exam centre. All of the exam centres are inspected by Cambridge English Language Assessment, and meet high standards.
