What you will learn from this course
How does it work?
You learn the skills you need in the classroom, but you also learn how to be a tutor for other teachers. This train-the-trainer method ensures that schools can benefit from our professional development in a cost-effective way that is school-managed.
We refer to the courses we deliver as the Tutor Training, and the courses you then deliver as the Teacher Course.
