It was good to get practical guides and lots of ideas that can be easily transferred into lessons. There are plenty of useful websites and it was good to get lots of ideas

Good pace throughout and all points were relevant, interesting - helping to inform me of vital information.

Good to know that there is support from school and LA

The information given was invaluable and it was great to share and magpie all the other NQT’s ideas!
