It’s no surprise then that Truro High School’s latest cohort of students taking part in ‘Teaching English as a Foreign Language’ training couldn’t wait to get stuck in with their course last week.

During the two-day certified course, the girls covered everything they would need to know to enter the world of English Foreign Language teaching and get prepared for an exciting adventure around the globe with this fantastic career opportunity. The course was open to students aged 16 and over.

From Russia to Africa, the girls have big plans about where they want to head now that they are certified to teach English as a foreign language and they can even offer private lessons in the UK.

The qualification is hugely respected by universities and employers alike and offers an invaluable opportunity to help enhance UCAS and PGCE applications, find volunteering opportunities and make students stand out from the crowd when looking for paid work.

The course was staged as part of the school’s comprehensive ‘Future Ready’ Programme. Launched this year, the programme offers girls of all ages the chance to develop new skills, increase their business acumen and best prepare them to make informed choices in the future.

This ranges from Bikeability courses and enterprise projects in the Prep School to lifeguard training, organising outreach work and a bespoke programme for aspiring medics, lawyers and engineers in the Senior School.
