Testimonials


...extremely well received by our trainees who commented very positively on how much practical information they gained...

Dave Chaplain
Nottingham Trent University

To be honest, I was expecting the day to be centred on a sales pitch for Innovate My Curriculum but that did not happen.

Paul Maddock
Staffordshire University

The session equipped trainees and experienced teachers with an accurate understanding of how to assess and monitor progress effectively.

Lynne Berry
Liverpool Hope University

...the session certainly de-mystified a lot of things and did a lot to allay fears of an Ofsted inspection...
