Teachers are invited for a week’s training before starting their classes, which includes observing a variety of classes, attending best practice sessions and receiving thorough handovers, which makes it an ideal position for both newly qualified as well as experienced teachers.  Best practice sessions are held throughout the year and teachers will find that help and support is always at hand. For those looking to stay on, we can offer opportunites to develop in other areas.
