WSE and Teacher Training

Wimbledon School of English has been running English teacher training courses in London since 2001. Part of our school ethos is to promote the teaching of English as a serious profession and to do all we can to equip teachers with the skills they need to teach successfully in the 2020s.

We have a strong belief in continuing professional development, which means our own experienced teachers undergo regular training to keep their skills up to date and relevant.

Our courses are led by our team of experienced teacher trainers who delight in sharing their expertise with other teachers. 

These professional courses are ideal for teachers or educators with experience in either teenage or adult classrooms.  You will update your English and learn practical techniques and share your expertise with other teachers.
