Make the most of IATFEL and the opportunity to develop your teaching career as we focus on providing you with resources, talks and training to help you boost your employability.

In the current working environment it is more important than ever that you have the people skills, life skills and employability skills to develop your career in what is an increasingly competitive environment. This year as part of Mind Series we have a whole host of resources to help you and your students improve employability.

Skills for work videos

Each skills for work video from Open Mind teaches a different employability skill. From interview skills to presentation skills and more, the videos and accompanying activities and teachers notes aim to help you and your students improve their ability to meet and surpass their career goals.

Teacher professional development

Throughout the week of IATEFL we'll be inviting you to get involved at our stand by sharing your top teaching tips with fellow teachers, as well as memorable anecdotes from your teaching career! We'd love to hear about your experiences of working with Macmillan.
