Pedagogy Standards for ELT (PSELT)


The standards describe the six key areas of a teacher’s professional practice:

  • language proficiency,
  • curriculum application,
  • lesson planning,
  • methodology,
  • classroom management and,
  • assessment


  • Accompanying the standards is an instrument that has been developed to measure the teacher’s (threshold) level in the area of knowledge, skills and attitude.
  • Consisting of 127 items, the instrument enables teachers to conduct a self-evaluation. The data garnered will guide teachers in charting their continuous professional development.
