Who Teaches for Us

We select our English teachers with great care. All have a university education, internationally-recognised qualifications for the teaching of English as a Foreign Language, and a substantial body of experience. In addition many of our staff have or are working towards advanced qualifications in their field – something that we encourage with financial support. We also place great emphasis on a decent friendly approach to students and commitment to our aims.

Some of our teachers have successfully studied for the Trinity Licentiate Diploma TESOL, one of the highest practical teaching qualifications in this field. Several of our teachers are official examiners for Cambridge or IELTS examinations or are qualified teacher trainers working for part of the time on CELTA courses.

Our teachers are always well prepared and can call upon a broad range of approaches in order to achieve the desired aim.

Teaching is coordinated by our Director of Studies, and so both individual lessons and whole courses have clearly stated and closely monitored aims.

The Director of Studies is Nigel Briggs, while the Assistant Director of Studies is Iain Saunders.
