AM LearnToTeach Courses LTD is an organization created to provide high-standard training courses for teachers of different educational levels. The educators behind the training seminars form a team of professionals and experts from all levels of education. Even though a diverse group, the team has been working together successfully since 2006. Both diversity and experience have created some important projects throughout the EU taking into consideration the particular needs of teachers and students from primary to secondary education. Our level of expertise has driven us to share our experience with teachers across Europe and pass on our accumulated knowledge with the aim to improve the quality of teaching in our common educational space.
Among our priorities is to:
Provide educators with high quality training experiences;
facilitate the work of teachers in their everyday teaching practice;
enhance the educational competence of teachers so as to deliver better educational results;
practice innovative and creative solutions for the classroom;
open new horizons using future oriented ideas like STEAM, ICT, sustainability, climate change, identity development, critical thinking, or historical realization;
exchange and utilize ideas, thoughts, and experiences in an environment that promotes acceptance and sharing as professional development strategies.
The professional team supporting the development of the courses is formed by skilled certified trainers, collaborators and advisors of LearnToTeach, all experts in their field including (among others) the following:
