Here's what's important to us at Phillip James
Commitment to our staff
It sounds corny, but at Phillip James our commitment to the professional development of our staff is the most important thing to us.
Working at Phillip James ensures you won't be standing still careerwise, but will be gaining professional, transferable skills necessary to ensure a bright future for yourself.
Professional Development Programme
As part of our commitment to ensuring our staff gain the professional skills necessary for future career advancement, we hold weekly Teacher Development Training, mentoring programmes, as well as free access to any UDEMY online courses which staff wish to take, regardless of the subject being studied; check out Udemy's website to see what's on offer https://www.udemy.com/?persist_locale&locale=en_US
Teachers have a fairly flexible schedule: although you'll have fixed hours for your classes, you are free to decide when you work the remaining hours.
We're proud of our work
It’s fair to say a lot of coffee gets drunk at Phillip James.
Our teachers spend much of their day planning lessons, collaborating with colleagues on lessons plans, and, of course, teaching.
Most of the teachers will tell you it's often pretty intense, but we're really proud of what we do, and the level of creativity and high quality lessons that our students receive is hugely rewarding for all of us.
