It can be easy to remain in a small association with few regulations, low expectations and standards, however in time this leads to stagnation and a decrease in your students level, which in turn leads to student drop out. Why not take the decision to challenge yourself by joining ITA and we will work with you, help you integrate into our family of clubs and give you and your students the opportunity of access to structure, qualifications, clear goals and pathways, no matter what your skill or interest, to bring out the best in you, your club(s) and your students.
