EFA Pre-service teacher training course 

A course that will prepare you for the Academy Exam to become a Moroccan public service English teacher

The Regional Academies Entry Examinations 2022-2023

The Regional Academies Entry Examinations measure the specific knowledge and skills that beginning teachers need. The test does not measure an individual’s disposition toward teaching or potential for success, nor does it measure your actual teaching ability. The examination is designed to be comprehensive and inclusive but is limited to what can be covered in a finite number of questions and question types. Teaching requires many complex skills that are typically measured in other ways, including classroom observation, demo lessons, video recordings, and portfolios.

The Regional Academies Entry Examinations assess the content knowledge required of a first-year educator in a specific field (here, English Language Teaching) in Moroccan public schools. This preparatory course is intended for pre-service English language teachers at the secondary-school level. Generally, the course aims to walk potential teachers through four domains, including advanced language awareness; foundations of EFL/ESL education; teaching methodology; and issues in education. More specifically, this course, both thorough and accessible, will familiarize target beneficiaries with the test format and the domains the candidate is tested in; identify areas where they believe they may need improvement, and increase their knowledge and build their skill set in those areas. The following table shows the components of the entry exam and their weighting.
