“The day went very quickly due to the pace and delivery of the session. Having taught for 40 years I was pleasantly surprised that the INSET kept me engaged and inspired me to re-think ways of working with MAT students. I would definitely attend another INSET by Dave to enhance my PD even though I am in the latter stages of my teaching career!”Teacher , Shrewsbury High School For Girls
