Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT®)

The Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT®) is a test from Cambridge ESOL about teaching English to speakers of other languages. It aims to increase teachers’ confidence and enhance job prospects by focusing on the core teaching knowledge needed by teachers of primary, secondary or adult learners, anywhere in the world.

Who is TKT® for?


TKT® gives teachers a strong foundation in the core areas of teaching knowledge needed in the English language teaching classroom. It is ideal for all teachers, whatever their background and teaching experience, and is also suitable for people who would like to teach English but do not yet have a teaching position.

What does TKT® involve?


Most teachers are likely to follow a preparation course before taking the test but you can also prepare yourself through your own reading and study, if you prefer.
TKT® has three core modules. These can be taken together in one exam session or separately, in any order, over three sessions. Each module consists of a test of 80 objective questions, lasting 80 minutes, which require you to select the correct answer and mark this on a computerized answer sheet.

Module 1 — Language and background to language learning and teaching:

  • describing language and language skills
  • background to language learning

Module 2 — Planning lessons and use of resources for language teaching:

  • planning and preparing a lesson or sequence of lessons
  • selection and use of resources and materials

Module 3 — Managing the teaching and learning process:

  • teachers’ and learners’ language in the classroom
  • classroom management

Results for TKT are described as being in one of four band scores, 1-4.
