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.

Entertaining and engaging day. Covered many useful strategies in a short space of time. Practical experience of the techniques is invaluable.

Senior Teacher , Ysgol Y Grango

I thought the course was well structured and presented. It provided theoretical support and practical ideas for improvement. A very informative useful session

Teacher , Morpeth Road Primary Academy

I just want to thank you again for your time and input. You struck the perfect balance for the training day at the start of the new year. Staff had fun and enjoyed the session, also, and crucially, they came away with lots of ideas that they could try the next day. You had a very mixed audience, from trainee teachers on their first day in school! NQT’s and RQT’s right through to more experienced colleagues, including one who retires in October. The full spectrum of the profession, and pitching it right for a such an audience is a challenge, but I feel that you did so, and very well indeed.
