Testimonials

Highly informative and digestible - lots of useful take aways! Thank you.
Excellent day! Resources and presentation were very well prepared . Good opportunity to meet others and discuss and share ideas about PD.
Incredibly valuable to have the opportunity to discuss the content with other colleagues and actually put some of the theory into practice. Thank you.
A very good day. [The facilitators] successfully disseminated the materials and facilitated some very good professional discussions. Thank you.
I really enjoyed the day, and left feeling inspired and with lots of ideas for how to put the guidance into practice!

I thought that CPD on CPD may be too theoretical to be practical. Instead, I now have a clear idea of what I need to think about with regards to planning my school CPD for the coming year.
