Personal and Professional Development

Professional Development aims

  • to equip the teacher-to-be with actual teaching experience in the classrooms, guided and mentored by teachers and Centre staff, and
  • to develop professional skills for carrying out the roles of a teacher beyond the classroom: working with colleagues and parents, supporting children with specific needs and becoming a life-long learner through ongoing research.
