Teacher development in London

Schools with good teachers and happy students are more likely to get word-of-mouth recommendations and returning students. So while schools may put you through an intense interview before they take you on board, once you have started teaching with them they will look after you.If you have just done your TEFL course your school will make sure that you are given guidance and support while you find your feet in the class and get your confidence levels up. They will usually pair you with a more experienced teacher who will be able to answer all of your questions about the school, the materials, the paperwork and give you much-needed advice and teaching tips.If you did your TEFL course a while ago and already have some experience, London schools are great for allowing you to develop further. Most schools offer in-house teacher training workshops – given either by a colleague or by an external speaker – which will focus on teaching methodologies, materials development or practical tips. Often you will be asked if you would like to attend local talks or conferences in the evenings or weekends to further your knowledge. Any costs involved will usually be carried by the school.London is an amazing place to develop your skills further as a TEFL teacher. With so many schools and teachers in the city there are always talks or meetings regarding TEFL. Attending these will allow you the opportunity to meet other teachers who understand your experiences and who can share ideas, materials and resources. It’s a great way to network and find out about the teaching conditions in other schools. These talks are also great for meeting the authors behind the coursebooks or the big names you learnt about when you did your TEFL course. London being the TEFL hub that it is, it is not unusual to end up sitting next to a TEFL celebrity.
