Testimonials

This is the MOST helpful PD I have come across specifically for LSCs. 
Far better than anything provided. 
The perfect balance between research, theory and practical ideas that I can use specifically in my role. 
I just need to go over all the notes again. 
While it was the perfect pace, I need to commit my learning to long term memory. 
I also have great ideas for actioning what I’ve learnt to benefit the school.
