 Teacher Led Team-building (Teaching with TLC) 

Resilience, confidence, collaboration and communication are top of the list of qualities and life skills required by employers and universities. In a work place that’s rapidly changing and an education framework with an increasing focus on standardisation, there’s a greater need than ever to support the growth and development of our students’ character. Instead of relying on third party providers and residential trips, use this course to help your teachers develop the skills to deliver the same outcomes in your own schools. We call this 'Teaching TLC' (Team work, Leadership and Communication) skills.
