In addition to training provided by onsite administrators, administrators from Southlands LA campus make periodic visits to train teachers in schools abroad. We encourage teachers to earn AP certification even if they are not currently teaching an AP class, and some of our schools reimburse teachers for those expenses. While almost all of the teachers in our International programs have US teaching certification, for those with ESL certificates or teaching licenses from other countries, we strongly encourage them to pursue an online California teaching credential through a partnership between Southlands and Hope International University. We have negotiated a 40% tuition discount for a Masters degree in administration and/or California administration credential.
