What people have said about this course

  • A great day - and even though I had to leave early due to unforeseen circumstances, I left with such clarity and ability to write my self evaluation confidently
  • The training was brilliant and because of the small numbers was so well tailored to our schools.  It was really useful to have the quality of trainer who is still currently an Ofsted Inspector.  I benefited enormously from this training and it will have an instant impact on both my organisation as a head and on my school.
