The Future English Online Teacher Community (OTC) programme is built on 12 professional competencies of the British Council Continuing Professional Development Framework (CPD Framework) and Teaching for Success modules. It is designed to help teachers and teacher educators improve their performance and achieve better results from their learners.

They will develop and manage their e-portfolio and reflection journal.
The topics of this nine-week programme are:
