On-demand professional development for English language teachers

Language Fuel logo

Do you want to supplement the CPD that you provide to English teachers?
You can provide access to the Language Fuel course collection via your own platform.



Each course is only 20 minutes long, recognising teachers' busy schedules.



Licensing Language Fuel courses is a fraction of what guest speakers, teacher trainers or seminars can cost. Add this as a low-cost option to your repertoire.

There are over 90 courses with new ones added periodically. They map to all different stages of the EAQUALS framework for language teacher development.



Courses are 100% on-demand and online. Professional development can happen anywhere, anytime. A great complement to your face-to-face workshops.



Each teacher gets the input they need. Teachers can do a self-assessment, to discover their 'growing edge' and choose courses to meet their needs.
