Our approach to training Professional Toastmasters is unique. We have an absolute dedication to quality and want new Toastmasters to uphold the high standards that we set. Being owned by a not-for-profit organisation the cost of the training we can provide is used to ensure that your education, both as a prospective and ongoing Professional Toastmaster really is cost effective and of the highest possible quality.
The school is owned by the Association of the UK School of Professional Toastmasters – this is the largest Toastmaster Association in the Toastmasters' General Council. It currently includes 74 active Toastmasters, all graduates of the school.
Graduates are offered the exclusive opportunity to join the Association; membership is not currently open to non-graduates of the School.
The association provides a number of benefits including:
Reassurance for clients that the Toastmaster they engage is backed by a group of talented professionals; guaranteeing the highest standards
Security for you and your clients that in the unlikely event that a Toastmaster is unable to attend a function, for example due to illness, the Association can normally find a replacement Toastmaster to fill in, trained to the same high standards
A network of Toastmasters who can be called on for advice, support, mentoring or even to fill in a job you are unable to make… so you’re not left “on your own” to get on with it
Very reasonably priced professional indemnity insurance
Notification of jobs that are available for any Toastmaster to take (e.g. where a booking is sought for a Toastmaster who is already booked on that day)
The opportunity for new graduates to "shadow' more experienced colleagues, gaining valuable experience
A resources library, containing sample Terms & Conditions, recommendations for contracts, our Code of Professional Conduct, and other useful documentation
Members' forum - an active discussion forum offering the opportunity to get and gain feedback, swap advice, or ask questions of other Toastmasters
We offer our training in a 5-day residential session – this means you don’t have to keep coming back for more, but also that you will leave with a fully rounded education covering almost everything you might expect a Toastmaster to know… “we don’t just do weddings”
Our training material has been written and is constantly updated by experts in their fields… for example our City of London work is regularly reviewed by one of the top Toastmasters operating in the City, and our Jewish Work is regularly reviewed by one of the main Jewish Toastmasters in the UK. These individuals often teach on our courses so you learn from the best in the field. This unique approach ensures that the training is up to date, relevant and practical.
