What is LEAP?

LEAP is a project based learning program that will allow participants to explore a current challenge facing the business and make recommendations for how to address it. It will provide participants with hands on experience of cross functional teamwork, communication and project management.

4 Phases of LEAP: Learn, Explore, Act, Present

Who is LEAP for?

Any teacher who has worked for EF for more than six months can apply for the program. Additionally, the teacher should:

  • Be a strong performer

  • Be able to work to deadlines

  • Have strong communication skills

  • Be able to demonstrate how they will complete the program on top of their schedule

  • Not be involved in another training program (Online distance, Cert TESOL, Dip TESOL or DELTM)


Local and international teachers are encouraged to apply.

Applications will be accepted through an online application process. As well as all the usual information that goes into application forms (name, center, email address etc.) you will be asked to complete 5 descriptive questions (200-300 words). These are:

  1. Reasons why you would like to participate in the event.

  2. Why do you believe you are a suitable candidate for the program.

  3. Think about the last time you completed a goal. Outline the steps you took.

  4. Think about a recent experience of working as part of a team. Outline a challenge you faced and how you overcame it.

  5. Briefly outline any challenges you expect to meet while doing this course and how you intend to overcome them.

    For Q4 above, please use the STAR model to frame your answers.

  • Situation: Present a recent challenge or situation in which you found yourself in.

  • Task: What did you have to achieve? 

  • Action: What did you do? 

  • Results: What was the outcome of your actions?

We encourage you to complete your answers in a word document in advance of applying and then pasting them into the application form so that it does not time out.
