Erasmus+ Course Builder

Over 300 participants attend our regular Professional Development Courses each year. Some people come together with colleagues from their school or organisation.

Organisations such as teacher training colleges, university departments and ministries of education also ask us to build tailor-made courses for their teaching and non-teaching staff. 

If your organisation would like us to design a closed group programme, here are some of the components to choose from so you can build a course which relates to your own needs and outcomes.
