Course: Teacher Training Course - Level 3 Formerly known as PTLLS
Tutor Feedback
The course I did was Award in Education and Training on line so I have not actually met Beth face to face other than via Skype, but whenever I emailed her her response was always the next day and even on the same day sometimes.When I did my micro teach and Beth observed she put me at ease and told me what I was expected of me and how the Skype micro teach worked, it did feel a bit odd and surreal but once I started it was fine. From the very first contact with her she was very encouraging and she gave me confidence to complete the course, which I passed successfully and am awaiting my certificate to drop on my door mat any day now. Thank you Beth.

What made you decide to book with Gateway

I did a lot of research into the different ways of doing my chosen course and decided to go for an on line option. I found Gateway as I was doing a Google search and after reading all the information which I found easy to understand and everything was pointed out and the comments from other students I decided to go with them. The price was also an incentive as it was cheaper than most I looked at.
