“Really brilliant fun ways of learning - scenarios and problem solving. Alan was fab!”

Adele Bourne - Head of PE , Sydney Russel School

Extremely useful and self evaluative course. I'm going away inspired to look at my own practice and how to improve. An excellent array of resources to take away and I could have happily spent longer at the course. Alan has a wealth of knowledge / experience - I would recommend this course to others.

A really interesting course that offered opportunities to discuss ideas and shared a number of up to date initiatives - good to see. There were good resources provided and links to websites etc.It helped me start to think more strategically about senior leadership positions and will positively influence future applications.

This was my favourite course out of all of the courses I have ever attended. Content was rich and entertainingly presented. This feels like a really valuable experience and has given me ideas to use in my current role as well as giving me aspirations for the future.
