  • "I’ve really been lacking confidence in my subject knowledge and I wish I’d attended this course sooner! Surely this is a course that any NQT, or teacher in their first few years, would benefit from. The speakers were fantastic - they showed a clear passion which was contagious. Explanations were clear, insightful and the topics challenged my understanding. I can clearly see how the subject days will benefit my students and I look forward to using these tools in future lessons."
