Here's what recent 2017 workshop participants had to say about their experience:

The expectations of how this can be used in schools was realistic and based on actual experiences

I found both the excellent resources and the opportunity to share approaches with colleagues from other schools most valuable. Very well run!

It was really good to learn some targeted strategies which were well scaffolded in terms of method of delivery and background theory
