Continuing Professional Development

If you want more than English Language development, we also develop and organise programmes for specialist groups to support Continuing Professional Development. Essex Pathways has a strong focus on teacher education from a Teaching English as a Foreign Language perspective so our programmes can include a focus on improving English language or on English language teaching. They can also be combined with academic subjects. Whatever your needs, we can look to creating a programme that works for you.
