The Key Trainers

" Training sessions are much more seminar-like in that they are very interactive and engaging with lots of opportunities to ask questions. The tutors were fantastic and very knowledgeable, especially as they still work in/with schools and, in a lot of cases, are current teachers. There was a good balance of time on placement and time spent at central training. " Sian H

Enthusiasm is caught, not taught! This is why you will be taught by trainers who are passionate about primary education, are experienced in teaching and are currently working with primary schools so are up to date with current good practice.
