Evidence underpinning this approach

2014 Conference feedback:


"The buzz - I felt inspired and determined to communicate that buzz to my colleagues and pupils."

"Being able to chat to others in the same profession, air difficulties and possible solutions. Positive affirmation of my own teaching theories and practice."

"Fresh approaches to teaching and practical advice on resources and ideas from the keynotes and breakout sessions."

"The variety of speakers and breakout sessions available, the atmosphere of the whole conference and of course the opportunity to speak to other professionals. The venue and facilities of the venue were excellent."

"Excellent balance between research and practice. I like the fact it is concentrated into one day - I get more out of this than some three-day conferences. Organisation is great, very efficient. I like having all the handouts in the one book, and having them on the day rather than later. The venue is very good. Nice, airy space and the catering is excellent."
