"I think two of the many strengths of NELTA come from rewriting the cliché 'do as I say, NOT as I do' as 'do as I say AND as I do'. The trainers delivered each training session like an actual lesson should be.

The second strength is support. They were always there whenever I needed. This programme changed my understanding on being a teacher, and made me one. It was an amazing year that I will never forget!.."

Cevdet Boke, NQT with sixteen years of teaching experience.

“The NELTA program provided me with the support and guidance needed to prepare me for my career as a PE teacher. NELTA gave me the opportunity to work in two placement schools across the year; this hands-on approach has been so valuable and prepares you for the hustle and bustle of school life. The mentors and staff associated with NELTA were exceptional and always at hand for advice and guidance. The training days & conferences were all relevant and bespoke to my needs. I can’t imagine that any other provider would give you the breadth or depth of theoretical and practical training, nor the level of support you get from your Mentor. So, if you are willing to go the extra mile and live life in the fast lane I would defiantly recommend the NELTA training program.”

Jagdeep Panesar Teacher of PE

“As a career changer, I found in the NELTA programme a structured and purposeful way to transfer my professional experience and skills into teaching.

As a newly qualified teacher, I now feel confident to take on the challenges and opportunities of my new chosen career. I am ever so grateful to the NELTA team for the journey so far!”

Sylvain Savier Teacher of MFL
