Learning Support Tutor. , Barton Peveril College

Very timely CPD, expertly led by a knowledgable and engaging trainer. It was especially important that he is an experienced and current practitioner. Some excellent strategies presented and I now have a clear idea of how to use them back in school.

Assistant Head , Chislehurst School for Girls

Very useful ideas which would be easy to implement, especially with lower years where students tend to compartmentalise their learning.

HOD , Benenden School

Really informative and interesting understanding how the brain receives and retains information. Revision strategies, realistic and do-able, even at support level.

Honest, entertaining sessions. Lots of useful techniques, some that will be easy to implement and can be used straight away.

Fantastic practical things presented in an exciting, stimulating way which was great. Very useful information.
