Abstract: Foreign language teacher creativity covers a variety of meanings. It refers to teacher creativity as a language learner/ user; teacher creativity as a performer (i.e. a person acting out in a classroom) and teacher creativity as a manager of his/her own professional development/ career. The paper describes the training implemented to novice teachers of English (n= 40). The aim was to raise students’ awareness of the concept of creativity, with special emphasis being put on FL teacher creativity and to familiarize the trainees with creativity enhancement procedures. The training affected students both cognitively and emotionally. It proved particularly useful in broadening student’s perspectives upon the notion of creativity and triggering their reflection upon what makes foreign language teacher behaviour creative.
