Impact of ITT

Through the excellent tuition, range of activities and assignments the DTLLS programme has offered me the opportunity to develop my career in exciting, positive ways. I feel I am equipped to facilitate good educational experiences for my learners. I also feel that the course has left plenty of ‘food for thought’ in terms of further development. I feel lucky to have been taught by such outstanding role models who more than anything demonstrated learning by illustrating many brilliant teaching techniques.
