Cambridge English : TKT

Teaching Qualifications

TKT is offered by Cambridge English Language Assessment, probably the world’s most well-known and well-respected provider of qualifications in EFL and TEFL.

The Cambridge TKT is a series of modular tests which assess your knowledge in specific areas of English language teaching. TKT consists of three core modules: Module 1, Module 2 and Module 3 and two specialist modules: TKT Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and TKT Young Learners (YL).

You can take each test individually and receive a Cambridge English certificate for each module you complete.

Why choose TKT?
