About the Course Creator,
Richard Brown

Richard is a highly-experienced and passionate teacher who has taught and trained teachers at the highest level for over 15 years. The creation of the transformational Advanced TEFL Development Program resulted from Richard´s desire to bridge the gap between initial and further training in TEFL, which for many teachers is either too expensive or simply unavailable. This coupled with the belief that English teachers have the platform to not only empower their students to proficiency in English but also to make positive changes in their lives beyond the classroom.

´´The Advanced TEFL Development Program will give you everything you need to teach English effectively and with confidence whether you are new to teaching or have years in the classroom.   I look forward to helping you to experience an enlightening way of teaching and to making a lasting difference in the lives of your students..´´


Quality teacher training - at a fraction of the cost.

A comprehensive teacher training programme such as the prestigious Cambridge Diploma (DELTA) including tuition fees and expenses can cost easily up to €5000. This is often beyond reach for many teachers and even if you do gain the qualification it can take years for you to figure out the practical implementation of the theory. The Advanced TEFL Development Program is packed with tried and tested teaching tips, ideas, techniques and lesson plans which will help you to fast-track your own professional development - at a fraction of the cost. Plus you will be getting first-hand expert guidance from a graduate with over 10 years of post DELTA experience. But more than anything, you will experience a new type of teaching, facilitating truly meaningful lessons that will enrich both your students´ English and their lives beyond the classroom. And that is priceless.
