Finding your voice and evolving as a new teacher in these early stages is exciting and transformational.

This part of the training has a rigorous practical focus, which provides students with plenty of insight into teaching methodology as well as the invaluable experience of teaching practice. Students are assessed and given constructive and detailed feedback to offer individual guidance as well as support for this element of the course.
