Lol! We get it, but school leaders love our training because we’ve made it better by being on zoom. It’s very interactive, you don’t have any travel costs and it means more of your SLT can be part of the training which means it has great impact. Our training always gets great feedback and attendees are pleasantly surprised by how well it works online.

No, we like our training to be interactive so we don’t record it because not everyone wants to be filmed.

If books are included with your booking you’ll receive them shortly after the training.
