“Hi Lawrie and Steve,
Thank you again for inviting me to visit your course. I just wanted to say that it was obvious that you are doing an excellent job in running it. The candidates were very happy and they spontaneously appreciated the training and support they have been given throughout the course; they commented on how much hard work it is for both them and you. You can be particularly proud of the way you provide them with feedback, both written and spoken: it was clear, selective, relevant, supportive and well worded.
It is always a pleasure to see a centre that provides high quality teacher training to satisfied trainees.
All the best and I hope to see you some time in the future again!”

“Dear Lawrie and Steve!
I wanted to thank you for the last couple of months! I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to join the course and get to know a whole new side of myself.
Although I struggled a bit at the beginning I soon enjoyed every bit of it - even if it was hard work and a lot to cope with besides my job at the theatre. Never ever did I expect that I would enjoy teaching as much as I did. I applied for the course mainly because I wanted to learn something new, but now I am seriously considering teaching as my future career plan. There are times in life when you just need to change something and this course was probably the start of something new for me.
Thank you for all your support throughout the whole course, for your enthusiasm and excellent feedback - whether it was something I did well or something I need to work on. It was always very encouraging and pushed me to become better.
I will let you know about my future plans and will probably come back to you to ask for a letter of recommendation soon and for some teaching advise later on when I am stuck :-)
Thanks for everything!
All the best,
(Feedback from Patrizia, CELTA trainee February-June 2018)
