Deans Creative English School covers attendance costs of external TEFL events, such as the ACEIA Conference (in Sevilla in November) and regional TESOL events. Furthermore, any teacher who is looking to study higher level teaching qualifications such as the DELTA or TESOL Diploma can apply to the school for a financial subsidy of up to 30% off course fees.

Due to the current emergency situation, teachers are requested to carry out a number of on-line tasks before arrival in order to ensure that they are familiar with the school's on-line platforms and to prepare for any possible changes to our teaching programme. Teachers will be compensated for these additional tasks.
