The many teacher training institutes that come up today, with no proper guidelines, fail to understand the true mechanism and believe children needs to be told what to do and how to act. Indeed, this is very erroneous thinking. SGTTI has broken free from this wrongful understanding and encourages teachers to be a facilitator, not a dictator. During the past years, St. George Teacher Training Institute has done an excellent job at training teachers with this apprehension and all the skills and knowledge required to achieve excellence.
Many teachers serving in schools here in Sri Lanka and abroad are proving that success. The many children who will prosper into victorious adults at their hands are even greater proof of our achievements. The trainers at this institution, under the guidance of Rev. Stanley Peiris, should be venerated for the untiring services they provide. I wish to thank wholeheartedly, the commendable individuals who contribute to the progress of St. George International Teacher Training Institute and wish them great future success. Children are our future; it is our purpose to create a better world for them.
What was great about studying in SGTTI for me was the individual basis, in which the lecturers approached classes, which made learning much easier. The lecturers are really involved with the students and genuinely interested in seeing you do well. I really loved the course; it was so interesting throughout the time at SGTTI. The life there was the best part! It was really easy to make friends and there is just a great atmosphere around the college.

Studying at St George Teacher Training Institute was a life-changing experience. From the very beginning, it taught me step by step to time myself, to think in a creative and present it in an attracting way and also to be patience to do small things. This experience has given me confidence and strength to achieve something that I use to believe as impossible. When I applied for a teaching post they were pleased to see what I have done at my Teacher Training Centre and after observing me they liked the way I presented the lesson. I am happy to see myself today as a teacher who is educating small children in an effective way.

Actually St. George International Teacher Training Institute changed my life alot. We know the world is developing day by day and as teachers we have to update.. Here, the teaching techniques are amazing. I learnt so many teaching methods.. Not only to my career and also to my life. This International Institute converted us into Quality and qualified teachers. Thank you so much to Mrs. Roshani and the staff. May god bless you all.
I started doing this diploma in my spare time to keep myself busy and to find my passion again. At first, I had trouble motivating myself to carry on with it and I faced multiple difficulties during this time. However, with the never-ending encouragement and support from our principal, Mrs. Roshani, and with the guidance of the talented and incredible lecturers and staff, I finally completed the diploma. The diploma offered different opportunities for us to help us shape our personalities such as seminars, trip, and activities. This diploma changed my life in a significant manner and gave me what I was looking for and more. I will always treasure the experiences I gained and the valuable relationships I’ve made. And now I can work as a preschool teacher anywhere in the world! I am eternally grateful to everyone who helped me along the way.
