Isobel, primary teacher
"I would highly recommend to anyone to follow their dreams and go for it. It's a difficult, but incredible journey and the reward you feel standing in front of your own class as a qualified teacher is beyond words could explain. Find yourself an environment you feel supported in and choose a course which works for you. Teaching is wonderful!"
