Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools

Profile Development and Training are pleased to offer a variety of support courses which can be fully funded with an Advanced Learner Loan (“AL”). The AL is a student loan which only becomes repayable when the applicant earns over £26,575 per annum, which means there is no cost to you as the learner unless you earn over this threshold. For more guidance on the AL, please click here.

Whether you choose the online route or learning in a group classroom setting, these tutor led courses will run cohorts for 12 months for Certificate qualifications and 14 months for Diploma.
