welcome to the community

We know how isolating it can be to teach on your own. That’s why we’re a membership organisation, with a virtual Staffroom to share tips, ideas and stories, grumbles and high-fives.


qualifications and assessment

Complete your AET (Award in Education & Training) qualification with us, as well as accredited assessor training and individual teaching observations and assessments.

 Once you’ve started teaching, we can help you turn your passion into a thriving business. Get help with marketing, venues, pricing, websites (and all the boring paperwork).
