The hiring of new teachers for the English Program at CEDEI starts several months before a cycle starts. The selection process includes different stages, such as the verification that applying teachers fulfill certain requirements.

One of these is that teachers have a certificate to teach English as a second/foreign language such as TEFL, TESOL, or CELTA. Another important factor is teaching experience, which could have been a part of their certification process or a minimum of six months English teaching experience. They also need to have a bachelor’s degree.

Teachers chosen to teach at Foundation CEDEI also receive teacher training and opportunities to share their opinions while they are in the program. Thus, CEDEI’s English program has been offering quality education for the last 24 years of teaching experience in Cuenca.
