Best part about working at Vaughan Systems?
According to Aindrias Fitzgerald the Production Director: "Vaughan Systems is a fun, international environment where the career opportunities are endless." However, given how expensive it is for new teachers to move to another country and the fact that Madrid itself is getting so much more expensive these days, I would say that the best thing about going to work for Vaughan Systems is that you can eliminate the initial TEFL course expense and go straight into teaching and making what is probably the best pay you'll be able to make without the kinds of contacts that you can only make when you've lived and worked in one place for years.
