What delegates say about this course: 

Personalised & answered all of my questions

The day and content were perfect and met all my needs. This was the best course I have ever been on and I feel like I can go home and use what I have learnt rather than it just being theory.

Thoroughly enjoyable & very inspired by all the resources and advice

Very substantial amount of information, ideas and resources. Really liked the small group size.

Liked the way educational concepts were done as classroom activities so it was easy to see how to apply to own practice. 

I liked the ‘takeaway’ aspect of the resources which focused on us being able to use ideas straight away back in the classroom rather than just learning the theory behind things.
