Why should I train in a virtual classroom?
With the current global situation pertaining to Covid-19, classroom training is an option that doesn’t exist. However, we understand that nothing beats being immersed in the energy of the classroom while being surrounded by like-minded students who want to better themselves in studying for their future.
That is why we are introducing the Level 3 Award in Education & Training course in the virtual classroom format. This will allow you the opportunity to ask your tutor questions and will also give you the chance to partake in group discussions with your fellow students. You can do all this while following a classroom plan that opens you up to new ways in learning and developing your skill in becoming a teacher or lecturer in further education
