TELC Examiner and Rater Qualification Training

Examiner training

Examiners evaluate the oral performance of the test candidates. In accordance with TELC tests, TELC organises examiner qualification courses in different languages for the proficiency levels A1 to C2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Successful participants of the telc examiner training receive an examiner licence which is valid for three years.

Rater training

The TELC rater training teaches participants to correctly apply the TELC rating criteria for written performance. Again, the CEFR is the standard for the candidates’ performances. The training courses focus on the discussion and evaluation of written performance.

One of the requirements for participation is a valid examiner licence in the appropriate language. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a TELC rater licence that is also valid for three years.

In-house training

International Steps, as an official examination centre, has the opportunity to book examiner and rater training sessions as in-house events for a date of their choice.
