IH Certificate in Advanced Methodology

The IH CAM aims to increase teachers' theoretical knowledge of teaching, improve their practical teaching ability and self-analytical skills.

If the optional pre-Diploma sessions are followed, it will also raise a  teachers' awareness of what they can expect from a Diploma level course and prepare them for it. 

Who is it for?

  • Qualified teachers with at least one year’s full-time experience (600 teaching hours)
  • Experienced teachers wanting to expand their theoretical knowledge and skill base
  • Teachers aiming for a Diploma level qualification such as the Cambridge DELTA


There are 19 sessions of which a candidate must do a minimum of 16. Sessions cover theories of language learning, language learners, skills and systems. .
