Bell understands that the key to happy students is a team of happy staff; consequently we take every opportunity to make sure our employees have an unforgettable experience, and the chance to further their careers.
Bell is committed to the continuous professional development of all staff both permanent and temporary and we provide child protection training to all young learner staff. At the beginning of each summer course, you will have two or three days' induction where you will have the opportunity to learn about Bell, our courses and our systems and procedures.*
In addition to the above, Bell has various opportunities for staff to apply for training at other times of the year. This could include attendance at a conference or sponsorship for courses, e.g. First Aid, Lifeguard or CELTA. You will learn more about these opportunities whilst working with us.
“The training programme provided by Bell bring staff together, increase morale and are an efficient way of continuous development.”
Jordan, Assistant Activity Director
*Please be aware that attendance at induction is compulsory.
Bell runs regular INSET sessions during our courses and we aim to provide staff with at least one suitable session per week. Whilst some sessions will be specifically related to a particular role, with sessions on a range of subjects including ADHD, Behaviour Management, Arts & Crafts and Warmers and Fillers, many will be relevant to all. We actively encourage staff to share their expertise so if you would like to run a new session, we recommend you to speak to your line manager who will be able to organise a session for you to run.
“The INSET sessions I attended, one on the whiteboard use and one on lexical games, were very useful. I wish I could have attended more!”
Barbara, Business English Teacher
As well as the summer course, Bell also runs many courses throughout the year both in the UK and abroad and we welcome summer staff to return*. We are keen to offer support and advice in order for you to achieve your potential and are always looking to promote dedicated and enthusiastic employees to senior management positions.
“There were plenty of opportunities whilst working for Bell to progress my career and my professional development. I was able to progress through the roles and take on additional responsibilities at every opportunity. This has made me far more experienced and employable.”
Tom, Airport Coordinator
