I received the best welcome from Linzi at MAITT. I felt as soon as I left that it was the training academy, I wanted to do my teacher training with and was very happy when I got the call later that day. I have met some amazing peoplewho support each other on the course and the support from Linzi is so good, replying to constant of emails from me. The Friday sessions are thoroughand informative and not only are the tutor’s experts in their field, they offer so much support in other areas of the course which has allowed us all to meet our best potential.

A triangulated partnership between MAITT, our Partner Schools and LJMU are fundamental in achieving this aim.
