Iva Chakarova | Class Teacher

This is the best course in education I have ever been on in London. Really interesting in all aspects about how to manage the class, planning etc. and makes us think about our skills and how to improve them. 

Francisco Garcia | QTS

1st Note Education have been especially helpful and supportive. Approachable and professional they have listened to our needs. Choir, singing and percussion are now part of our performances across the whole school.”

Louise Singleton | Headteacher Hambrough Primary School & Nursey

I have had a number of placements through 1st Note Education. Comprehensive lesson plans and materials were supplied and the management were very helpful and supportive. 1st Note had good relationships with the schools and frequent contact with me to ascertain that all was going well. I would recommend 1st Note Education as it is a friendly and helpful agency.
