World-class teaching

Experience, relentless innovation and our proven method aside, our programs still wouldn’t be worth much without the teachers who run them. Learners progress faster with good teachers who understand their background and their goals – it’s a given.

That is why we spend a lot of effort finding the best, fully qualified teachers with a proven track record and relevant experience. They receive continous support and training from EF as part of their professional development.

What does it take to be an EF Teacher?

To become an EF Teacher you need a degree, a recognized teaching qualification and at least one year’s relevant experience. Most of our teachers have significantly more. Before they start, teachers are fully trained in the EF method and courses and they receive regular feedback and observations. They have the option of joining further training whenever necessary.
