Short Courses for Teachers


Develop and improve your teaching skillset quickly online with our short courses for teachers that are British Council accredited for teachers of English. When you study this course, you’ll gain access to practically orientated workshops that will help you reflect on your own teaching, discuss and implement best practice. You’ll also learn how to spice up your classes with new teaching strategies and engaging tasks.

Why you should choose a short course to improve your teaching skillset?

About you: You’re a teacher at any education level who is committed to continuous professional development and wants to be able to offer the best possible education to your students.

Why OI Digital Institute?

We provide students with high-quality online education courses. We pride ourselves on offering flexible study options tailored to your needs and recognised by leading Higher Education institutions and professional bodies.

How we're different

Our mission is to create access to education and provide more opportunities for students to achieve their higher education goals worldwide. We believe that online learning can and should be more than reading pages of text and watching videos of a person who you’ve never met and probably never will. Real people, real teachers and genuine contact can make a good experience great. And we should know, as part of Oxford International, we’ve been helping international students achieve exceptional results for 30 years.

What our students say?

We create our courses with students in mind. We look at helping you to achieve results while also enjoying the experience of learning. As such, we regularly receive great feedback from our students, and we use this to find ways to always do more for you while you’re studying with us. Hear more about what our students have to say…

Students and professionals use OI Digital Institute

The level of teaching, experience and patience from the course providers was absolutely incredible. It was intense, there was a lot to learn in a short space of time, but it was structured to ensure it was taught and consumed at an attainable pace. It was extremely rewarding.
