Cover Teachers:
While it is a key aim for MTA to provide consistent teaching, as in any educational environment, we sometimes have to call upon our pool of highly experienced cover teachers.

They have usually worked with MTA over a number of years and know our practice, and often the students, well. We relish this chance to share their skills with our students, and allow them to be taught by a variety of professional practitioners!
