NILE‘s accredited face-to-face teacher development courses take place in in in July and August every year. Since 1995 we have trained thousands of teachers in the small, friendly city of Norwich.

A wide range of courses, expert trainers and a dedicated student services team make participants come back year after year, and we are delighted to welcome new and old participants back in the summer of 2022.

Most courses are two weeks long with 25 hours teaching per week in our state-of-the-art teaching buildings a five-minute walk from Norwich Market.

NILE’s experienced trainers are specialists in their chosen fields of ELT and, using a combination of theory and practical application, they work hard to offer training sessions that meet yours and your colleagues’ specific needs and priorities. They also support you in considering how to adapt the content to your own professional context and creating a strategy for putting your ideas into practice, getting the most out of your course for both you and your colleagues back home. 

You’ll have access to excellent resources including NILE's specialist ELT library, a digital platform with every course and free wifi throughout the premises.

Many of our open-enrolment courses also offer you the opportunity to work towards the Trinity Certificate for Practising Teachers as an extension to your 2-week programme.

All NILE’s accredited courses involve a significant element of English language improvement and/or the development of language awareness.

Our Accommodation and Welfare team is always on hand, and throughout your time in Norwich you will have the chance to meet, talk to and share experiences with international colleagues. You will also be treated to a rich and varied social and cultural programme, leaving you with life-long memories to go alongside the skills and practices you develop during your stay.
