Teacher Incentive Program
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to sell?
You do need to make a good impression but, no, you
do not need to sell. You will simply walk into companies in
your area, say hello in English or Spanish, and leave a flyer
for the person in charge. We will
follow up with a phone call or a
visit to do all the selling.
If I find my
own students, why do I need Educa-training?
This sounds too good to be tue. Are the classes
this is part of a European-wide,
multi-billion-euro effort to make
the EU one of the most competitive
and healthy economic regions of the
world. If four or more students sign up, the classes are
totally free. With 1-3 students,
the funding covers from 30% to 90% of the price.
Can I process the government grants
Educa-training help me?
We will send you flyers and
promotional material that you can
hand out. We will also give you a
list of target companies in your neighbohood and
some tips on how to approach them.
And when you find students, we will
take care of the laborious paperwork
process. If there is anything else that you
need, just ask. We want
you to feel that we are behind you.

Does a teacher
need to speak Spanish?
No, the flyer (and a
little sign language) will
explain it all. If you can uttter a sentence or two
in Spanish, it helps. If
you are fluent in Spanish, more power to you.
What kind of
teachers do best with this?
teachers who get the word out. If you are consistent
about spreading the word and offering the service,
it's guaranteed, you will find students.
How much grant money
does a company have available?
What is the ideal
Our experience tells us that
companies with 6-199 employees are the best
prospects. Companies with 1-5 employees have
relatively little credit, and larger
companies usually have an HR person who processes
all government rebates internally. In any case, there are
small companies who continue their
classes long after the funding is gone, and there
are very large companies who simply don't know
or have the administrative know-how to process
the government rebates.
