What did previous attendees say?


The speakers were excellent and very knowledgeable. The conference was really good and much cheaper than lots of training around, essential at this time when funds are low and access to high-quality CPD can be limited.

Louise Aldridge, Deputy Head Teacher and Inclusion Manager / Bushy Hill Junior School

The information presented was really useful and the staff and I can implement a lot of key ideas quickly and easily. Sharing the videos across the school has also saved me a lot of CPD preparation. Thank you.

Jo Vizor, Head of Learning Support / The Elms School

Excellent content delivered in a very convenient way and at a very reasonable price. More information than I could handle in one dose – but thankfully I will be able to re-visit in my own time.

Janet Bristow, SENCO / Perrymount Primary School
