“What an amazing day. The speaker was clear and informative and I have come away with a realistic but aspirational action plan. Brilliant ! ”  Elisabeth Hyland

” I have been a SENCO for as long as I can remember and I can honestly say I’ve never been on a day-long training that has been as informative and useful as today was.  I came away with much more clarity regarding my role within the new code and also the role of the LA.  Your straightforward, no-nonsense approach was refreshing and left us (others were saying this too) feeling a lot more confident about how to move the reforms on in our schools.You are obviously extremely passionate about getting the best possible deal for these children and this came through loud and clear.”  Wendy Scott, Deputy Head/SENCO Westways Primary School Sheffield.
