    Natalie Burgess

    “TESOL seemed the perfect option.”

    Natalie Burgess is today enjoying teaching at a primary school in Shanghai – thanks to choosing Loughborough College for her teacher training.

    Oliver Barker

    “I really enjoyed the whole experience. There were five of us on the course and the College tutors were excellent – very helpful, friendly, clear and engaging. They taught me a lot about the skill of communicating."

    Oliver Barker is convinced his TESOL Teacher Training course at Loughborough College earlier this year was a ‘great investment’ – and has already had his first installment.

    Natalie Hansard

    “I wanted to continue my studies in a familiar and friendly environment. Being able to study in the evenings was also a huge advantage, as it meant that my work life was not interrupted by my studies.”

    Having already completed a Foundation and Top-Up degree, Tourism and Business Management teacher Natalie Hansard discusses how the PTLLS qualification gave her the edge over other aspiring teachers.
