For those of you teaching general English at secondary level, our Summer School for Teachers course starting 31st July should prove to be a great motivator. Ofttimes being a challenging yet truly rewarding age to teach, this three day course aims to provide strategic and useful guidance with a twist of fun to keep everyone engaged during lessons.

Elementary teaching is an enriching experience whilst being a role requiring specific skills to motivate younger generations. Sparking a pupil's interest and promoting learning are therefore at the heart of our three day course. Attended by like-minded educators and fuelled with passion, taking steps to further inspire the classroom space all come together in this August session.
