I loved the activities - they were really helpful and I will definitely implement them. This was the best course I have ever been on.

Teacher , New Hall School

One of the best, most fulfilling courses I have been on in a long time: Alan Jervis delivered the information in such a supportive and interesting way. I have a great deal to take back to my school and support my own pedagogy. Thank you very much.

Brilliant, practical ideas to take away and put into practice in the classroom. Bethany brought her wealth of knowledge and experience to make the course incredibly relevant.
