If you want a promising career in English teaching and lecturing,, which you can pursue seriously throughout life; then, ELTAC offered by Learntech.pk from LRN.UK is an essential certificate which is equivalent by all means to CELTA. It is just that a same course offered by two different names i.e. ELTAC and CELTA, by two different awarding bodies i.e. LRN UK and Cambridge respectively.
Teaching Essentials Certificate Course is a program of study primarily for people who are currently teaching, but have had little or no formal teacher education.
The philosophy of CPD is based on 70:20:10 Model for Learning and Development. Based on research and observation carried out from the 1960s until present. Morgan McCall and his colleagues, el M. Lombardo and Robert A. Eichinger working at the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) are usually credited with originating the 70:20:10 ratio (Crush, 2016). This Model captures the three types of learning - experiential, social and formal - and explains their relationship to one another. It holds that individuals obtain 70 percent of their knowledge from job-related experiences, 20 percent from interactions with others, and 10 percent from formal educational events.
The proposed CPD framework establishes three key domains of knowledge and skills which are professional knowledge, professional practices and professional dispositions. This framework constitutes certain set of key competencies under each domain. Therefore, this framework is comprehensive in its nature as it not only highlights the key domains, but also provides the core competencies which are covered under each area.
CPD framework ensures to cater to teachers’ diverse needs and provide opportunities to acquire essential competencies and develop them over a period. The proposed CPD framework establishes a three-level development:
- Foundation level
- Advance level
- Specialization level
