Joining the Course


Students undertaking the course are normally expected to have an all round education to ‘A’ level standard and the equivalent of GCSE grade ‘C’ in Maths and English. Experience of working with children is also important. We may make exceptions for applicants who show enthusiasm, commitment and the determination to tackle any areas in their own education that need further development.

The course focuses on many aspects of the teaching and learning process. While it refers to a wide ranging curriculum, it does not cover the detail of each subject.


Annual fees cover the tuition costs of ten weekends and two weeks. They also include all guided learning between weekends, study packs and handouts.
