Teacher Information

Information for schools and teachers

If you are preparing students for the exam and you – or they – have any questions or difficulties we are just a phone-call or e-mail away and welcome your queries.  There are many downloads available to help teachers prepare students for the TIE exam.  You can download them here.

Some teachers find the idea of preparing for the test without specific materials a little daunting. However, we would like to emphasise that the absence of a defined syllabus means that TIE preparation can easily be incorporated into an existing course of study and the tasks presented in the test reflect the kind of authentic task featured in communicative language classrooms.

Full details of all of the components of the examination and ideas to help you in preparing your students are available in our TIE exam Handbook. This is available to download here.
