‘Choose a job you love
and you will never have to work a day in your life’

Confucius (551BC)

Education is one of the most important parts of our society. We all go through a period of education, from the moment we are born, entering into more formal education of school, before we decide if to go to college and university or into the working world. In the working world education continues into the roles that we decide to take on.

Our Education and training course den currently contains just the 1 course, which is the foundation of anyone who wish to teach in the adult education sector. Any additional courses that are added to this den will further benefit and complement this initial qualification, and those who wish to commence teaching.

‘The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery’

Mark Van Doren – Professor of English at Columbia University (1920-72)
