Bridge has been helpful in bridging the gap between my love for teaching and the reality of being a good teacher. I have seen myself grow into a better teacher and person.
- Ranjini Karthi

The Bridge course provided me the opportunity to grow and learn about myself as an educator and as a person. And the internship programme helped me reinforce our learning and actually apply what we learned during our course. It has enhanced my level of confidence and was an enriching experience.
