WHO SHOULD APPLY
 
The MTL programme is designed for those with a passion for teaching. It has been developed to meet the needs of both pre-service and in-service teachers.
  • Pre-Service Teachers: Those who aspire to become teachers. The programme places students in a school/college setting, where they can not only gain first hand, practical exposure, but also network with potential employers.
  • In-Service Teachers: Those who are already in the workforce but would like to specialise in a given field/subject and gain a formal qualification to reflect their professional status. The programme is ideal as 55% of the programme will be delivered through a work-based setting that reduces the need to travel to campus.
