Course description

Access to Higher Education (Education)

Those who become teachers have a strong desire to make a lasting difference in children’s lives and inspire them to achieve their goals in life.

Training to be a teacher is to embark on a learning journey that will culminate in an engaging and fulfilling career. Whether you plan on teaching primary or secondary education, you will get the opportunity to share your passion for learning.
