With over 23 years worth of teaching and instructing experience we have an in-depth knowledge of working in education and with youth groups. We believe we have a good understanding of the needs, pressures and opportunities our education system creates. This allows us to provide bespoke courses designed to give rewarding experiences in a way that is upfront, convenient and thorough; allowing you to concentrate on your job, your interests, your life.

Our courses provide you with the skills you want or need in a professional, creative environment. They focus on fun and exciting activities while learning the techniques.

Our teacher based courses also provide the resources, the knowledge and even the paperwork to take straight back to school and pass on your new skills.
