Do I have to submit assignments?

There are no formal "marked" assignments but you will be asked to complete certain tasks in order to progress through the course.

I will check in regularly to make sure that you are keeping up with the programme.

You will need to have completed all the tasks in order to receive the certificate of completion.

Is the course right for me and my level of experience?

If you are unsure of whether this is for you, Anne will be happy to speak to you by phone and tell you more about how things work. just let us know at [email protected]

Why can't I access all the lessons immediately?

This is because the course content will be added as we go along, from the start of the course onwards. This is advantageous as you will be able to concentrate on one thing at a time. There is an overview in the Welcome pdf that you can access on the platform as soon as you have booked.

Is this just for new teachers?

it is certainly perfect for brand new teachers but also a great opportunity for refocusing teachers to evaluate their work. The mentoring in the course is bespoke. Also, the content and approach are adapted to suit your needs. More experienced teachers who have taken the course to date have found it to be very useful.

When can I start?

You can start the programme whenever is the right time for you. Each person's journey is individual so the programme can be adapted to suit your needs.
