An Overview of ELT Formative Ways in Spain
Garcia Laborda, Jesus
Online Submission, IATEFL Teacher Trainers and Educators SIG Newsletter, n2 Jul 2005
Spain is currently a hot spot for English language teaching due not only to the legal educational changes and publisher's efforts to improve the Spanish students' competence but also because of the increasing interest of educational authorities and general teachers in action research and optimizing the teaching standards. To achieve these purposes, the teachers demand more training and the educational regional boards organize teacher training courses. Additionally, some publishers also organize one day workshops or two day conferences open to all teachers. This paper reviews the different types of teacher training in Spain. In doing so, the paper addresses three different aspects of teacher training: (1) the description of the three most common ways of training in-service teachers; (2) the presentation of the guidelines of each one of these ways; and (3) the current deficiencies and proposals to improve the current situation. (Contains 1 table and 3 endnotes.)
