Academic Standards

Our Qualifications

Bucksmore Homelingua teachers are recruited using a strict application process. We request that all teachers have an English teaching qualification such as the University of Cambridge (CELTA) or the Trinity College (TESOL) qualification. School teachers must have a postgraduate teaching qualification – either a PGCE in the UK or PGDE in Ireland.

Teacher Selection Process 

Only about 10% of applicants are successful. Teachers go through a rigorous five-step recruitment process before becoming an active Bucksmore Homelingua teacher. This process includes a comprehensive interview, police background and reference checks, and a full home inspection.

Inspections & Support

Before a student can study with a teacher, a member of the Head Office team inspects the teacher’s home and family, with further inspections every two years. The Academic Teacher Manager monitors courses and student progress constantly – which includes calling the student and teacher during the course to check on progress and satisfaction.
