What is Young Learners Teachers Training Program?
All teachers at some point of their careers have to teach Young
learners and sometimes the teacher training that they have had does
not equip them to deal with the demands of teaching children. A Young
Learner can be any child within the 3+ to 16 age group. There is a
great deal of difference between the Intellectual, Social and
emotional orientation between adults and Young Learners, therefore
what works for one group may not work for the other. The YLTT program
addresses this particular age group and helps the teacher to handle
and optimize their teacher skills to make it more effective.
Who should do Young Learners Teachers Training Program?
Anyone who has a flair for teaching and loves the company of children
can do this program. Teachers who have been teaching adults can move
to teaching YL which is very rewarding, care givers, parents, retired
personals, people looking for a change in career can all apply for the

and a degree and should like to spend time with children.
