Impact on practice

Too early to talk about impact, but the course certainly taught me some useful skills, e.g. soil testing and what to do in response. It has caused me to think about Health and Safety in gardening with children in greater depth than before.
Quality of teaching

Our trainer had excellent knowledge and imparted this in a really clear way. The quality of resources was very good indeed. Although we haven't taken this up yet, I know that further support would be available if requested.
Venue, catering, facilities/accomodation and booking

The venue, though quite a long way from home, was actually ideal for the course, with a small, but well run school garden. Catering was very good and the booking was a simple process.
Any other comments? Would you recommend this to other teachers? I would thoroughly recommend this course. It was an excellent introduction to gardening in schools.
