Thanks to the support of the U.S. Embassy to Libya, Amideast is pleased to announce that we are currently accepting applications for a Professional Certificate in English Language Teaching (PCELT) course to be held in Tripoli this summer.

Amideast has partnered with World Learning/SIT Graduate Institute to offer PCELT across the region, providing teachers with top-quality training, hands-on teaching experience, and American accreditation. PCELT's emphasis on practices that create a learner-centered, interactive classroom has already translated into an improved learning experience for tens of thousands of students in the region.

The 120-hour program is intended for teachers who wish to upgrade their knowledge and skills based on the latest language teaching methodologies and emerging trends in the field. The course will be held from August 1 – August 30, 2021, at the General Centre for Training and Education Development in Tripoli, where COVID safety precautions will be followed. Full tuition will be covered by the US Embassy to Libya.
