We feel very strongly that our supply teachers and support staff should have access to high quality training opportunities. It is essential that our candidates can progress themselves professionally in the same way that their permanent teaching colleagues can.

"I can only say the best about the Team Teach Training and the 2 trainers that led the course.

They knew exactly what they were talking about, and their experience proved to be valuable when answering the many questions the trainees wanted to ask.

As trainees, we were always given time to reflect and ask questions about the course's contents, while the trainers were happy to answer all queries.

I also appreciated the structure of the course, as theory and practice would rotate, which helped us to stay focused and active at all times.

Also, in my opinion, the examples chosen were very effective to illustrate the situations and helped us to understand the importance of choosing and taking action wisely.

Our trainers were very confident and helpful, always keeping different perspectives in mind: the student in need, all the other students, the teacher, the law. 

This being said, I must recommend this training to everyone working in a school environment. It's precious!
