Take Your Teaching To The Next Level

The Developing Teacher course is an advanced TEFL course aimed at those who already have some TEFL training / work experience and want to deepen their subject knowledge and brush up on their skills.

The staff is amazing with teachers who really care about your future. The course is challenging, but prepares you for the world of teaching English as a second language. They assist you throughout the course with things such as accommodation, finding a job, and visa requirements. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to become certified or just have an incredible journey in Barcelona.

Frequently Asked Questions

View More FAQs

Will I be able to process a student visa with this course?

Yes, the course satisfies the criteria for a long-term student visa.

Can I work on a student visa?

If you apply for a long-term student visa (more than 6 months), yes, you can work through a “convenio de prácticas”, which is like an agreement between us (your school) and your employer that you will be paid work experience. We will provide you with all the necessary paperwork and give instructions to your employer on how to arrange it.

Will I still have time to work?

Yes, the input sessions are at 9am in the morning, meaning you have all day and evening for working, which is when most English classes take place. The course is designed so you can conveniently manage your own time and the workload.

Can I do this course without having done a TEFL course?

No, this is a post-TEFL training course and assumes a certain amount of knowledge. You would need at least 120 hours of TEFL training (online or face-to-face) in order to be able to take part in the course.

I would like to process a 12 month student visa, can I do that with this course?

Yes, you can either study the Developing Teacher course for 12 months or combine Spanish lessons and the Developing Teacher course to qualify for a 12-month student visa.
