Our Mission Statement
The English Department of Talpiot Academic College prepares graduates to become effective, professional, and creative English teachers in Israeli elementary and secondary schools.
To achieve these goals, the department develops students’ language proficiency, awareness, appreciation, and knowledge of English language, literature, and culture.
Our student teachers are introduced to the pedagogical theories and methodologies, strategies and skills that enable them to address the needs of diverse populations of pupils, incorporating knowledge and competence in classroom management and the development of a positive classroom climate.
In planning, implementation, and assessment of their teaching and the pupils’ learning, our students train to be reflective and effective professionals in their field.
Talpiot students are thus empowered to become independent and responsible lifelong learners and educators. In addition, the college and the English department focus on promoting moral and pluralistic values so that our student teachers can serve as role models for future generations of students.
