Apollo is committed to providing high quality professional development to all teachers. Even after passing CELTA, Apollo supports teachers in continuing their learning experience. Teachers are given the opportunity to improve their career through a variety of methods:
- Regularly scheduled observations from Academic Management plus ‘pop-in’ observations
- Professional Development Interviews annually
- Regular in-set training workshops
- Access to IHWO in-service courses (e.g. the IHCYL and BET).
Initially, teachers receive a full induction and help with planning their first lessons. A senior academic team member observes new teachers within the first few weeks to provide feedback and to direct further efforts towards becoming a great teacher. Apollo is well-equipped to ease the transition between completing the CELTA, or previous work with other schools, to teaching in Vietnam.
At Apollo, teachers have the opportunity to work with different age groups and a variety of programs to enhance individual teachers' skills and repertoires. Apollo provides all the support needed for professional development throughout a teacher's Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) career.
