QTLS Teacher Status
Our trainers have teaching qualifications (PTLLS, A1 Assessor Award and CertEd) together with QTLS status. This means that we are qualified to teach in companies, further education and schools. Our qualified trainers have completed two-year intensive teaching programmes at university.
Our teaching methods have been observed and approved by Ofsted and Senior Lecturers and we have shown considerable expertise in all aspects of classroom and 1-1 teaching.
