Programme Structure

  • Teaching is by far one of the most rewarding and important professions of our time. Our world is changing, our students are changing, and there are too many students who are not receiving the education they need and deserve. 
  • If you are committed to making school a place where young people thrive and grow, where they feel nurtured and safe, where they realize their gifts and opportunities for their future—you must commit to excellence in teaching. This begins with a rigorous and well-established program for learning to teach.
