This is a refreshher course for me. Tecnically it's super easy to navigate which is important to me. Content is very comprehensive and interesting. Great layout of the modules and lessons so it's easy to follow the topics. Loving the audio for each lesson, as it brings the lesson alive and it'svery helpful for revision and I love being able to do all this from the comfort of home, in my own time. Very friendly, helpful response from staff too, namely Kate and Emma when I had some questions. I love the YouTube clips and VT footage of actual live classes to demonstrate different methods of teaching.I have already recommended this course to friends, and I am looking forward to doing more. Kind regards, Fiona Feely

I have just completed the first part of the Hybrid Course and have really enjoyed the experience and getting back to studying and learning. The course is done in a way that helped me understand so many aspects of teaching without feeling under pressure or overloaded with work. Ella and Sarah kept me really well informed and were always there as a support. Really enjoying the course :)
