A similar message was received from Hannah Spencer, Curriculum Leader at Knayton C of E Primary School, North Yorkshire – Thank you so much for delivering our school sessions and CPD yesterday! The children and staff alike found it so useful and fun! If you have platforms I can leave feedback, please let me know and I will leave some (amazing of course).
When delivering training, 100% of course participants have stated they would recommend their training session to teachers from other schools.
In response to, “What did you enjoy about the training?”, recent feedback included:

The sessions were very clear and easy to understand. Learning was broken down into manageable steps, so as not to be too daunting for anyone.
Jonathan Dolman, Head Teacher, Ashville College Junior School, Harrogate, stated:
The e-Safety session Neil delivered was excellent. He was able to offer practical advice to parents on how to keep their children safe online, in addition to outlining the dangers posed by various technologies. His work with the children was also thoroughly enjoyed by all.
