Teacher Training
This program offers you an opportunity to work with an enthusiastic group of educators and volunteers who want to improve their English teaching skills.

Our end goal is for newcomers to attend and pass the IELTS exam so that they can enrol in a university. We believe in the power of cooperation. As such, classes are taught in pairs and teachers can always rely on their co-teachers for support. Teachers work best when they’re well equipped. That is why we have a wealth of classroom materials on hand. Teachers are not expected to create lesson plans from scratch, but rather to adapt and assemble them from existent materials.
