The 8th CETA

Symposium 2023

This 8th Cambridge Teaching Awards Symposium held at ITI Istanbul in September 2023 aims to bring together tutors, assessors and moderators from centres worldwide to provide an opportunity to share experiences of delivering the Cambridge English Teaching Awards, primarily DELTA, CELTA, and TKT.

The Symposium will provide a forum to share 'good practice' among course providers, discuss current issues and problems encountered in course delivery and to learn about new innovations in the field. It also provides a platform to 'voice' ideas and consider future directions. The Symposium is particularly important as we emerge from the pandemic when training courses are being conducted both online and face to face and decisions need to be taken now that will shape the future direction of the Cambridge Teaching Awards.
