Exam Preparation (IELTS, FCE/CAE, TOEFL & PTE)

At the National Trade Academy, we've been offering vocational training since 2000, and from 2004 we've offered courses to international students in the agricultural and equine fields.

As many of our international students do not speak English as their first language, we now provide English language courses for the benefit of current and future students.
