“I highly recommend this Teacher Training Program. If you think you could not become a teacher because of xyz, you needn’t be worried. The school fully supports you from the first assessment day to the very minute you get your certification. And the support does not end there, there is a community of qualified teachers to help you at every stage on your journey. You have nothing to lose, sign up for a free assessment day and see if the school is right for you before you make any commitments.” Graduate, 2017
