All about the workshops

Please note, these courses are on the current LAMDA Exams syllabi. Sessions covering the updated syllabi (to be released in April 2024) will be announced in due course.

These short, ½ day workshops are punchy and efficient, and get straight to the heart of your questions around our most popular Syllabi. Whether you are a complete novice and looking to dip your toes in, or you are a seasoned LAMDA teacher and want new inspiration, we have you covered.

Each half day workshop is based on one specific syllabus. Facilitators will introduce each syllabi and their respective assessment criteria. Delegates will then engage in discussion around how to navigate the criteria through exercises with their learners that not only prepare them for their exam, but also develop transferable skills to other learning environments.

Key Information

These syllabus support courses can be taken by anyone interested in LAMDA Exams. There are no requirements beforehand- much like our 5-day courses- and can support first time teachers, or teachers branching out into other syllabi and wanting assistance. They are also suited to those who have been teaching LAMDA for a long time and would like fresh inspiration for their classroom.  

We aim to keep these courses bespoke to the delegates participating in them, so there are a limited number of spaces available. Apply now to secure your place, or if you’d like to check in on availability then send our exam courses team an email.

Each half day will be broken into 4 sessions- below is an approximate structure of each: 

Session 1: Introduction to LAMDA Examinations 

Session 2: Specific Syllabus Introduction: The session will provide insight into the examination requirements and how to evaluate the appropriate stage that will challenge, but not overwhelm the Learner.  

Session 3: Preparing Learners for their Examination: This session provides information about the key skills relevant specifically to their examinations. Delegates will have the option to join in short simple practical activities to support their teaching.  

Session 4: Practical Activities, and/or Preparing Learners for Group Examinations: 

The workshops finish with a Q&A session.

You should have a level of English that is approximately IELTS 6.0. Although English language tests aren’t mandatory, we recommend that if you are a non-native English speaker and you do not have IELTS 6.0, then you must have equivalent English language experience. 

You do not need any prior experience with teaching LAMDA Examinations. We welcome all ranges of experience.
