I chose this programme because it embraces the two major elements of my work as a teacher – child and family. I often find myself linking what I have learnt from the lecturers with various issues of my individual students; learning should be a happy process, and happy students learn more effectively. In this regard, the research, experience and expertise of the lecturers have been a tremendous help to me.
