Train to become an accredited Aviation English Teacher

Aviation English Asia Ltd is an accredited training delivery partner of the Aviation English Organisation, and is fully authorised to conduct teacher and rater training.  

The Teaching Training courses are designed to help suitable candidates become effective teachers of Aviation English. They are suitable for:

  1. English language professionals who want to specialise in Aviation English teaching or assessment,
  2. Aviation professionals who want to become Aviation English teachers or assessors
  3. Experienced Aviation English teachers who want to improve their teaching skills before applying for professional accreditation

Best practice in Aviation English Teaching and Rating

To ensure that the minimum, better and best standards of practice stipulated in ICAO Document 9835 and ICAO Circular 323 are upheld the Aviation English Organisation has developed a thorough and very detailed plan for implementation.  This is internationally known as the Aviation English Rating Organisation, Syllabus and Teacher Assessment Framework (AEROSTA).

Recognising that short 4-7 day teacher and rater training courses are not effective, the Aviation English Organisation has developed a programme of continuing development for Aviation English professionals. The foundation of this programme is strict requirements on the minimum experience of teachers and raters before they progress in their careers.

Pre-requisites for English language professionals who want to become Aviation English teachers

English language teachers should have a recognised externally assessed teaching qualification such as CELTA or Trinity Cert TESOL, and at least 3 years of formal teaching experience with adult learners in a large classroom environment. Candidates with a purely English language teaching background and very little exposure to aviation should enrol on an Aviation Familiarisation course before attending the Teaching Methodology course.

Pre-requisites for aviation professionals who want to become Aviation English teachers

Aviation professionals (typically this means aircraft engineers, pilots and air traffic control officers) should have several years of experience in a role directly related to flight operations or aircraft maintenance. Candidates with a purely aviation background and very little exposure to language teaching should enrol on on an externally assessed teaching course such as CELTA or Trinity Cert TESOL, or alternatively the Aviation English Organisation offer an internally assessed Certificate in Fundamentals of English Language Teaching (CFELT) which is suitable for aviation professionals who want to learn the basics of language teaching.

Pre-requisites for English language professionals who want to become Aviation English raters

English language teachers should have at least 1 year of full time direct language training exposure (approximately 1000 AEROSTA CPD points) to learners who are engaged in an aviation career, before they have the sufficient experience to progress to rater training.  Progression to rater will automatically prohibit the rater from teaching.
