I've been offered some part-time work at an English language business school. As part of my contract I have to agree to undertake the SVEB 1 certificate, which is a mandatory train the trainer type of course for those who lecture/teach in Switzerland.
Just wondering if anyone has done this, and can point me in the right direction to find out more about it. I've found places that offer it but can find very little info on what it actually involves. I am also wondering (probably fruitlessly) whether or not it is possible to do it in English.
Thanks. I will, of course, ask for more info from my new employer, but I like to know what I'm letting myself in for before signing on the dotted line, and don't want to have to ask too many (probably stupid) questions right from the word go...
I was wondering about the SVEB too. I am an english teacher, TESOL cert, and was wondering if I'd need to get the SVEB before applying for jobs.
I know that the 'flyingteachers' in Zurich do 2 day course to take teachers from CELTA to SVEB;it takes 20 hours and costs 510 CHF. But that's all the info they have on the website.
You said that you job offer was conditional on getting this thing- do you know if it is a must for most jobs?
