How will the course help me?

Give your primary learners the best environment to learn English by improving your management of instructions, learning activities, resources and physical space.

By the end of this module, you will be able to:

By the end of the first unit of this module, you’ll be able to:

- determine your views on the use of teaching and learning aids

I am currently logged into my account. I tried to click on that “enrol on this free course” button but the page isn’t available for some reason, it says “ OOPS! SOMETHING LOOKS TO HAVE GONE WRONG
ERROR
WE ARE SORRY, BUT THE PAGE YOU REQUESTED HAS TRIGGERED AN ERROR. PLEASE TRY AGAIN LATER.” What should i do? Also i can’t find those 3 horizontal lines to get to the “MY PORTFOLIO” page, they’re just simply not there…

Hi there,

Are you talking about a different course - I checked in with your account and it doesn't show that you have completed the primary one before the close date at the end of July. Let us know if it's a different course.

Best regards,
