Mission

The mission of WTTP is to revolutionize the way our trainees look at learning and teaching through a practical, hands-on program that prepares them to teach English overseas.  WTTP will accomplish this mission in an atmosphere that supports growth in the science and the art of teaching, guided by the following principles: 

Collaboration: Trainees participate in the program as learners and teachers.  In both roles, learning is facilitated through hands-on, experiential processes honoring the previous education and experience of all who participate in the program. 

Critical Thinking: Trainees refine the ability to set goals and reflect on their growing gifts and skills as learners and teachers, planting the seeds for lifelong professional development. 

Cultural Competence: Trainees cultivate an awareness of their own values and ideologies in order to understand how those affect the way they approach learning and teaching styles, and cultural differences
