Course Overview

Run over either one or two weeks in locations in Dublin or the UK, our teacher training courses have a strong emphasis on cooperation and collaborative learning.  With a focus on peer-to-peer learning, course content provides opportunities for discussion and the sharing of ideas with colleagues from different European countries.

Before you arrive, you will be sent a pre-course needs analysis and some optional pre-course reading. Our courses aim to identify your practical teaching needs and apply our course content to meet your learning outcomes and requirements.
