Once a class starts, there is continuous contact between the teacher and Academic Director of Studies. There is always full support for the teacher, both academic and operational.
We believe that providing developmental input and support is key to the success of our work with teachers.
Cactus runs teacher training courses for people without experience who want to become language teachers, and professional development courses for language teachers with some experience.
