Please Note Our Terms and Conditions re Certification

We reserve the right not to certify any student where we feel there has been significant absenteeism (more than one day), and that this absenteeism has not been made up in extra coursework or some other way that has been agreed by us.

We reserve the right not to certify any student we feel is not ready for teaching in a public space (this is normally due to issues around safety).

We reserve the right not to certify any student we feel has not engaged fully in the course. Examples of this may include not participating in any teaching practicums, not handing in a journal etc. Essentially we need to feel that you have fully participated in the course for us to be able to certify you.

Please see the Preparing for the Teacher Training page, for further details on the journal requirements and for the required and recommended reading.

In respect of all the above terms and conditions, we reserve the right to amend these and add to these at any time. Please do check back regularly for updates on this page.

If you have any questions about these terms please do not hesitate to contact us on
