WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

“Dave was great at presenting the course in a way that can be relevant to our unique situation. There was plenty of information included yet it was not information overload, as time was given for processing. The work booklet and powerpoint presentations suited the workshop. Overall - really well done. I'd happily use Dragonfly again and Dave's leadership.”

Director/Head of School , Bingham Academy

Very well prepared and presented course. Just what we asked for . Thank you.

Deputy Head , Queen's College

I have been teaching and working in for schools for 18 years. This is the best INSET I've had, for a number of reasons: i) course was tailored to our specific situation ii) ideas were offered, not mandated as the only truth iii) time given for real application iv) wasn't afraid to say the hard things and encouraged us to address them too. Sensitive but strong v) focus on AFL vi) nature of the trainer was kind, funny and respectful.

HR/Recruitment , Bingham Academy
