Sample of feedback from last year's participants - 

I really enjoyed this course. The Powerpoint presentation were so easy to get through because of the voice-over. The information was all relevant, well-structured and easy to get through. The course tutors were friendly, well-organised and very prompt in responses to assignments and any questions I had. A huge thank you to Elaine and Cora.

 A lot of work and preparation went into this course and it was well delivered.

Somehow, promote it more! It's really good and will benefit lots of schools and teachers. Thanks!
