Good course, would have been good if the course content was laid out online from the start and logins were sent promptly so that you could upload as you went along. Sally dealt very well with some of the staff who were un enthusiastic and brought them around.
Sam M April 11, 2024
I think overall I have learnt a lot and have developed my teaching skills exponentially. I think to improve, the booklet could've been filled in as we went along as I feel like we were going through a lot of information making notes. I feel like the teacher engaged with the class effectively ensuring all students' questions were answered and any issues were thoroughly explained.
Kiean P April 11, 2024
As someone who has learning difficulties I felt that I was being bombarded with information and struggled some what.
David J April 11, 2024
So glad I did this course! I learnt a lot about teaching methods, approaches, micro-teaching, procedures and policies etc This for me is important as I've been overseas for 20 years, thus out of touch with the UK educations system. Suzanne is a fantastic trainer! I initially felt slightly intimidated in the first session. However, she knows how to make you feel relaxed and yet at the same time challenged me. The outcome is I feel very confident about my ability in teaching.
Andrea H February 10, 2023
I enjoyed this course and it was relevant to my job role. The trainer (Su) made it enjoyable and i can take away new ways to teach.
