  • Quote

    I chose ILTT as I wanted to have 'in class' experience and training from people who are still working within the thick of school life and in the classroom. The training that we receive is current and useful, and I can see the benefits of it when using it in the classroom myself. My favourite part of the course is being able to work with the children in the classroom and gain first hand experience of becoming a teacher.
