Interested graduates are invited to train as acting teachers and tutors. Maintaining high standards in teaching is vital so we take time to train, monitor and develop our teaching staff. We encourage our staff to bring to bear their own natural talents to the classroom. Graduates with particular skills in certain areas are encouraged to design and implemented classes, workshops and classes, that can become part of our teaching curriculum. Due to their recent experiences as students, our trained graduates can be very helpful in addressing the concerns of students still in training.
