Training with Vaughan
Our training course is a vital element of our success. Our reputation is based solely on the quality of the teachers that we work with and therefore we need to be sure that all our teachers effectively use our method. Most of all, we coach our teachers to ignite their students’ imagination and truly motivate them. Everyone who works with us, regardless of experience, completes our training programme.
In two intense but unforgettable weeks, we train you in the fundamentals of being a great teacher.
The schedule is as follows:
9:30 - 13:00 Group Sessions
- Our style of teaching
- the range of Vaughan books that you’ll use in class
- basic grammar points
- how to make the students work hard yet wanting to come back the next day
15:00 - 18:00 Practice Classes:
You'll teach “real” Spanish students who will evaluate you so that you know, daily, what you’re doing well and in which areas you need to improve.
You will also be set daily homework tasks, all of which will help you become an outstanding teacher.

Do I Need any Qualifications or Experience?
It’s not necessary to have previous teaching experience but you do need determination, perseverance, humility and self-confidence. We look for individuals capable of being passionate about their work.
Why We Don’t Charge for It
We don’t charge for the training course because we only train those people who we believe really have what it takes to become a great teacher in our organisation. However we do require, in return for our investment in training you, a commitment of at least one academic year.
