Contingent Talk with Books – "Really really enjoying this training, I feel it's a lovely way to up-skill our EYPs. Such a worthwhile project for Early Years, which you can see working right in front of your eyes."
Get Hounslow Reading – "Great 'inspiring' course which presents plenty of opportunity for communication and collaboration. Also a good mixture of theory and practical ideas. Many thanks."
Secondary Subject Networks – "Effective agendas, excellent external speakers organised that we wouldn't usually have time to arrange to meet to help generate new ideas for trips, extracurricular activities and lessons."
Get Hounslow Reading – “Feel very inspired and not under pressure to do this. I want to do this. I can see that it is child-centred, but that I also love it!”
Secondary Subject Networks – “As I am very new to my role as EAL Lead, and I am at a new school, the Subject Networks have been crucial in helping me to learn more from experienced members of staff. The Google Drive with shared EAL resources has been incredibly helpful for starting EAL interventions across the school.”
Get Hounslow Reading – "Very informative and helpful. A lovely chance to reflect. Excellent, enthusiastic delivery which would inspire anyone! You are very knowledgeable and sessions are well-organised. Thank you!”
SEND Training – “There was plenty of time for discussion which was valuable. Strategies to help support, and ideas to consider, if children have been impacted by Domestic Abuse allowed me to think about the issues more than before."
Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – “Thank you for the very detailed and thorough subject leader checklist. It is an extremely useful and much necessary exercise. It's been an eye opener. Thank you”
Develop your A Level Teaching – “Really interesting to hear what other schools are thinking of doing by way of a recovery curriculum when we return. I think the discussions around wellbeing were very pertinent.”
