Animated trainer, used personal experiences to help with teaching. Nice balance of listening and activities

It was really helpful to look at much more challenging behaviour. Exceeded my expectations. The fact the leaders really knew what they were talking about was good.

It gave me lots of ideas, which I am looking forward to trying in the classroom. Exceeded my expectations

The course really helped me to think and reflect on my practice and has given me lots of ideas to try out.
