Outstanding schools understand the importance of investing in the career-long professional development of their teachers, and excellent teachers never cease to learn. This is why at Bell we are passionate about teaching teachers, teacher educators and school leaders. Our Training and Professional Development courses touch both our participants’ and their own learners’ lives in significant ways. Our courses are active, interactive, innovative, practical, motivating and enjoyable, but more importantly, promote deep, long-lasting and impactful professional learning. Our team of expert teacher educators, which includes world-class published authors and renown specialists with vast international experience in the state and private sectors, is second to none. In all our courses, participants join an international community of colleagues from all over the world to learn from and with each other, support one another along the way, and explore together new insights from the best available research evidence and the latest, most effective approaches to teaching English and through the medium of English. They make friends and contacts that last a lifetime and have unforgettable professional and personal experiences.’
