Many thanks to our current LTFT trainees Jenni, Bethan, Katy, Caroline, Emma and Jean who have contributed their time, experiences and advice to make this section possible. If you have any queries that aren’t answered here talk to a current LTFTT in teaching or e-mail Suzy Summers on

LTFTT with or without children

The majority of our current LTFT trainees have children but there are other eligibility criteria too. This is the Katy’s experience:

“Unlike most who do LTFT, I don't have children which often confuses people! I applied for LTFT because two days a week, I wanted to continue working for a Christian charity. I do administration - typing up articles, books, managing website, liaising with people overseas, organising trips and going on overseas trips to Ghana, Togo, Estonia, Latvia...... I can do something else with my time which I feel is just as important as my job - I don't have to choose over the two anymore”

Maternity & paternity leave / Childcare

The information in these sections will be relevant and useful for our full time and LTFT trainees.
