The teachers and staff at UWC colleges bring exceptional professional qualifications to their jobs. Many of them already have many years of professional experience. Just as the rest of the school community, they come from all over the world, are generally well-travelled and speak several languages. They usually live with their families on campus and participate actively in UWC life. In this manner the teachers are on hand to support the individual development of each pupil.


Most teachers have a master’s degree. Not a few have a doctor's degree. Many of them have either worked in other professions or have been involved in social projects before beginning their teaching career. This experience and knowledge enriches both their teaching and the extracurricular activities they organize.
