CLAIRE BARNES
CELTA trainer from Cambridge
Claire Barnes has worked for BKC International House since 1997 as a teacher, teacher trainer and assistant director of studies. She has CELTA, DELTA and IHCYLT and is a CELTA trainer. In addition to teaching, Claire has also been running seminars and workshops as a Cambridge Assessment English presenter in many parts of Russia, as well as in Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and, most recently, Armenia. From 1984 to 2017 she lived and worked in Germany, where she enjoyed professional development teaching students.
In CLAIRE's workshop: "Developing and Assessing Writing Skills at C1 and C2", teachers will establish and clarify the assessment scales that are applied to the writing component in C1 Advanced (CAE) and C2 Proficiency (CPE).

These criteria will be applied to some sample scripts and this will give teachers hands-on practice in assessing their own students' written work. In addition, a focus on activities will be incorporated that will help the learners to develop their writing skills.
