What delegates say about this course

Loved this course. Very informative, I found all the sessions useful. 

Very well organised, relevant and useful & something that will impact on my future practice. 

Being shown examples of higher level thinking and different exam techniques for A level is very useful as was the variety of resources that I can take away and use in lessons. 

This will really help with the planning for next term. Good comparison and other activities. Great info on smart materials. 

This has made me embrace opportunity and change. 

It’s been so good it been like being on a holiday!! Lots of time to think and talk without the pressure of school.
