Cambridge TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test)

TKT is a series of internationally recognised modular teaching qualifications, which test your knowledge in a specific area of English language teaching. The qualifications are awarded by Cambridge English, part of the University of Cambridge. As such, they are highly respected across the world as international qualifications that prove your knowledge and skills for language-teaching. You can pursue TKT regardless of your background: Whether you are an experienced teacher or an aspiring teacher, the qualifications will enable you to gain recognition for both career advancement and new employment.

With TKT, you show employers that you:

  • Are familiar with different teaching methodologies.
  • Know how to use teaching resources effectively.
  • Understand key aspects of lesson planning.
  • Can use different classroom management methods for different needs.

Gateway Graduate School (GGS), in collaboration with our sister organisation Skills for Life, will provide training support and assessments for the first three modules of TKT. As such, our students can sit for the examinations in-house.
