Teacher Training Course (TTC) Information

Hello and thanks for your interest in becoming a Helen Doron English Teacher!

We are happy to hear from you. So here is some (actually quite a bit 😉 ) information for you!

As you may have read in the public section of the website, the Helen Doron English Methodology is like no other – it’s heavily utilising immersion listening and positive reinforcement for kids to learn English is an easy, joyful and entertaining way that is unparalleled.

Therefore it is necessary – whether you are an experienced teacher or have no teaching experience yet – to get acquainted with this special methodology and this is done in a 6 day basic training course.

Our next Teacher Training Course (TTC) will take place end of end of May/beginning of June 2024 in Linz. The TTC is a small group training with max. 12 participants.

So what is it all about?

The Helen Doron Educational Group (the global organisation that we are a part of) has won several Global Franchise Awards, honoured as Best Children’s & Education Franchise internationally!

We are continuing our growth and success story after actually getting very well through the pandemic and are opening up again the opportunity to become a self-employed HDE teacher in Austria! It’s a great opportunity to work full-time or part-time while in Karenz (maternity leave) or while studying, or seeking a balance to a “dry job“. It is up to you and your family needs.

The Next Step Forward

We have several options – from your contact form info, I’d guess one of the following options might be suitable for you:
 
➡️ As you live in an area where there is no Learning Studio/Centre, but great demand for our courses, so if you speak sufficient German to also communicate with parents – this is your opportunity to become a Self Employed Teacher!
 
Flexible Timing
 
You can choose when you want to work. Only have time on Tuesdays and Thursdays? You can offer your classes then – of course, once you tell parents that the course is happening on Tuesday at 2 pm, you have to stick to it, but otherwise you are free to work around other commitments that you might have.
 
Great Earning Potential
 
To give you a rough estimate in terms of earning potential, you may calculate with earning anywhere from € 50 to € 120,- per hour of teaching, depending on the age group and the number of kids in the group. Of course then there are the business expenses, social insurance and taxes to be paid, but that’s something you have in any other business as well. As it is a service business, the overhead is relatively small. As it is a franchise business, you’ll get admin and marketing support in many areas.
 
This offer is valid for all places in Austria where there is no Learning Studio/Centre and no other teacher yet. However, outside of Vienna, it is limited to 2 teachers per bigger town and 1 per a smaller town/village and its surroundings, so that everyone has got enough work. 
 
Ongoing Business Support
 
As a Self-Employed Teacher, we as the Master Franchisor are ready to support you to get the children as a Self-Employed Teacher and also to show you how to administrate it. Administrating your students yourself is a bit more effort and admin work, but on the other hand it is also much better paid than teaching in a Learning Studio/Centre as they of course need a share of the course fee to cover their cost. You cannot teach inside the area of a Learning Centre or Studio without approval of the respective Franchisee, but there is so much space available, so that is not a problem.
 
We will not go out and distribute brochures for you, you need to be willing to be active yourself, but we can tell you exactly what and how to do it. In our own Learning Centre area we have around 700 students in our own Centres and from independent teachers in the area. So there is huge potential for you to teach almost any number of groups that you want to teach. The advantage of a franchise system is that you don’t have to re-invent the wheel but can use all the processes that we already have in place to make it easier for you. You’ll still need a bit of entrepreneurial spirit to be successful, but the advantage is that all processes for your success are in place and available to you.
 
As a self-employed teacher there are plenty of venues open to you – Kindergarten is one of them, Eltern-Kind-Zentren is another, and many more. There will be special marketing session in the Teacher Training Course that will show you what to do and we are available to support you afterwards as well.

Some background information:

In February 2018, WKÖ (Austrian Chamber of Commerce and Industry) presented us with an official Recognition Award for our work and contribution towards education of over 40.000 students in Austria, giving them a better future by teaching them English with the highly effective Helen Doron Method. Would you like to become a part of this recognized team of HDE teachers and make a difference in the educational field? Helen Doron English has won several global franchise awards as well – #1 in the field of children’s education! Would you like to belong to such a proud global community of teachers? 
“In May 1998 I was, just like you now, looking into the opportunity of becoming a Helen Doron English Teacher. Today I bless the moment I said “Yes!” to this chance. More than 20 years later, I work as HDE Master Franchisor in Austria with 9 Learning Centres and Learning Studios, 100 teachers and 3.000 students, at the same time running my two Learning Centres and bringing up my two kids (age 18 and 14).
 
Now, years later, some of my former HDE students become teachers as they had so much fun learning and some others bring us their babies because they know that’s the best English you can give your child. I have assisted hundreds of dedicated women and men to step into teaching as a part time or full time job; as a self-employed teacher or as a Learning Centre teacher; on maternity leave or as a joyful and lively balance to their other profession; foreigners who speak English but no German or Austrians who love English and speak it fluently; trained teachers or individuals with pedagogical talents who are ready to get trained. Our teachers come from all walks of life, you name it. Some teach as long as their children are young and move to other professions afterwards and some teach till they retire or never stop working completely, as they love it so much. What connects all these people is their love for working with children, having a job that matters and an opportunity of using English at work.
 
Whatever your life story is, you can give it a fascinating turning by becoming a Helen Doron teacher and start making a real difference in the world by giving the young generation what they need for their future: good English! And, at the same time, you give yourself a meaningful job, where you work with your heart as much as your mind and your pedagogical skills.
 
Hadn’t I said “Yes” back then, I wouldn’t be talking to you now, offering you the same opportunity and looking back at the thousands of children who have participated in the courses for all these years. As you can see, one small step may influence the future of hundreds or even thousands of people. As Christa McAuliffe said so brilliantly, “I touch the future. I teach” and Henry Adams summed it up saying, “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops“.”
