Comments from previous delegates

“Excellent course. Great to have it over terms to allow greater depth and time to make changes and assess impact. It has inspired a number of changes across our school.”

“This programme has totally transformed the way that we teach reading in school.”

“Extremely useful. It has really made me think about my approach to teaching reading.”
