Feedback from last year’s training:

  • Behaviour for Learning: Jeremy Crawley did an excellent presentation.
  • Wellbeing: I took away ideas which helped with my work life balance.
  • Teaching and learning in an active environment: Some good ideas gained from the session that I then used in my teaching.
  • Questioning: Many of the activities were good to take away.
  • EAL: It was interesting and potentially useful for later on in my career.
  • Transition: This was a useful and informative session.
  • NQT teachmeet: A valuable session; one of the most engaging of the year!
