What is TKT?

The Teacher Knowledge Test (TKT) is an assessment of what you know as a teacher of the English Language.

How will TKT help me?

The TKT helps teachers to learn more about the English language and increase their confidence as a teacher.

How does it work?

The TKT is divided into three modules. Teachers can take each module separately and receive a certificate for each one, so you can improve in specific areas where you feel it’s needed.
