After completing my diploma, I decided to undertake the Cert IBET course in order to develop my knowledge of Business English. I had previously completed my intial teacher training with SGI, so knew that they would be a good choice. The IBET distance course was useful and insightful, and overall turned me into a more confident teacher of Business English.

On this course I was able to develop my subject knowledge, understanding of Business teaching methodology, and ability to design specific courses tailored to my students’ needs.  Although the course was a distance one, I was very impressed with the level of feedback, support and guidance I was given by my tutor, Barney.  

This dialogue further enabled me to consider certain areas of Business English, and implement them into the classroom.  I have recommended this course to many of my colleagues, and I believe this course is good for all teachers already teaching or intending to teach Business English.
