At Tellal, we are all learners. We believe that in order to deliver exceptional standards of learning you must be an active learner yourself. That’s why we facilitate the delivery of hundreds of professional learning and development courses, workshops, networks and specialist programmes for GEMS teachers every single year.
The breadth of professional learning and development opportunities available through Tellal and the GEMS school network means that we can offer a truly personalised pathway of professional development. We employ intelligent technology, such as an E-portfolio with an integrated Personal Development Plan to track and structure your learning journey, enabling us to nurture your development as an educator and stretch you to fulfil your teaching potential.
Many of our professional learning and development programmes take a blended approach with online, distance, avatar simulator and face-to-face elements, giving our teachers the opportunity to benefit from the expertise of our network of peers and mentors regardless of location.
