After joining the London School of English in 2009, I was placed on a 'fast track' teacher development programme starting with the CELTA qualification. At the same time I was encouraged to pursue a management career which really took off once my DELTA was completed. The biggest perk of working at LSE is a feeling that you are doing meaningful work which has impact on others. For example, our recent accomplishment is launching a professional development programme for state teachers, which got accreditation from the Ministry of Education. In fact, when you work towards some goals that truly inspire you, hard work becomes a natural way of working and everything else follows.
