Aptis for Teachers is a variant of Aptis general. It has been designed specifically to help teachers and other candidates that are working in the education sector. It is used by teachers to certify their level of English, and generally for Habilitación Lingüística in Madrid (B2 -paso previo and Aptis Advanced C1 in all skills for the Habilitación) or as entrance or exit requisite for a higher education course.
It has been designed specifically for the education sector; it can be fully integrated into existing systems and managed locally, enabling teachers’ English levels to be tracked over time and the success of training programmes to be measured effectively.
The structure and length of Aptis for Teachers is the same as Aptis general. However, the test content relates specifically to teachers and questions tap into themes and scenarios that teachers come across every day. As a result, questions are familiar to them, allowing them to focus purely on the language rather than the context of the questions.
APTIS FOR TEACHERS CAN BE USED BY:
- English teachers working in schools, colleges, universities around the world
- Teachers of other subjects in schools, colleges, universities around the world
- English teachers in large scale language programs, including commercially-run programs
- Students on teacher training or university programs
- Other professionals working in educational contexts
Aptis General and Aptis for teachers have the same validity and both are now been officially recognised by several Comunidades Autónomas for oposiciones and Universities and CRUE (Confederación de Rectores y Universidades Españolas) and the following organisations:
