What teachers have said about what we offer teachers:

“This training has had a positive impact on the teaching and learning of my students. I have learnt and explored some new language teaching methodologies e.g. CLIL and I believe my teaching is more creative and exciting than before.”

“The project offered the very rare opportunity for linking classroom practice with theoretical frameworks and principles. Taking part in in the Action Research Module, for instance, represented an incredible opportunity to enhance individual skills, exploring and developing them in a process of systematic reflection. A fantastic experience.”

“The courses gave me concrete and practical ideas of how to apply new practice and ideas into my teaching as well as providing excellent sample resources which I could introduce quickly and confidently into my teaching.”
