Overall Objectives: 
PCELT is designed for current teachers of English who have little or no formal teaching background, as well as for experienced teachers who wish to upgrade or update their knowledge and skills based on the latest language teaching methodologies. The core components of PCELT are input sessions and workshops, guided lesson planning, observed practice teaching, and continuous peer and trainer feedback. Participants are rigorously assessed through their lesson planning and delivery, a reading log, reflective writing assignments, learner case studies, and a teaching portfolio. The practical component gives teachers the opportunity to apply their new skills in the classroom, to reflect on their own approach and development, and to experience peer and self-assessment. Participants deliver a minimum of six lessons to actual students, who also participate daily in the program.
