TKT Modules

The Teaching Knowledge Test (The TKT) is a test developed by Cambridge English Assessment for teachers who teach other languages. It is designed to test candidates‘ knowledge of concepts related to language and language use, and the backgraound to and practice of language teaching and learning.

You can take TKT whatever your background and teaching experience. It is suitable if you are:

  • either a pre-service or a practising teacher
  • teaching primary, secondary or adult learners
  • a non-first language or first language English speaker
  • a teacher who wants to gain formal recognition of your experience, keep your teaching skills up to date and develop your career opportunities.

You ideally need to have English proficiency at CEFR Level B1 or above.

Important : Flying Teachers accepts TKT as a recognised teaching qualification but new teachers might be asked to give a trial lesson before being hired. Unlike CELTA, teachers who have passed TKT  Modules 1, 2 and 3 will only be able to teach up to 200 hours a year. In order to teach for an unlimited number of hours, we recommend CELTA
