  • Module two focuses on developing professional practice and includes teaching practice. Module two is assessed by a portfolio of coursework, observed lessons, written assignments and an externally assessed lesson observation
  • Module three focuses on a specialist option such as young learners, English for Special Purposes.. and  is assessed by means of an extended written assignment
