Teaching Qualifications - Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT)
Who should take this exam?
TKT gives you an internationally accepted qualification that proves your language-teaching abilities. The qualification is suitable if you are a new teacher and want to build your confidence and skills, or if you are an experienced teacher and want to specialise in a certain area, or are starting to teach English for the first time.
TKT is also a good foundation if you want to study for a further qualification in teaching English, such as the CELTA or Delta.
You don’t need any formal English qualifications to take the test.
