Whole Brain Teaching
Our TEFL Trainees are taught how to create a lesson in order to cater for all brain quadrants of students. This module is presented by qualified Brain Profile Practitioners. Our school is the only institution that we are aware of that offers this unit as a separate module.
Science of Learning
We teach our TEFL trainee teachers how students learn. The short term, working and long term memories are explained and the interaction between them. Our TEFL Trainees also learn how to compile lessons in such a way that optimum learning will take place.
Finding a good job
Part of your training is compiling your TEFL CV and mock interviews by our staff. These interviews ensure that you are ready when you have to do international interviews.
Schools and Teaching Institutions Overseas offer our students easily jobs as they are sought after TEFL Teachers with probably one of the best TEFL qualifications in the world.
