 “Extremely insightful! I thoroughly enjoyed exploring reasons behind different ‘behaviours’ within both the classroom and reflecting across a whole school”

“Fantastic – should be compulsory for all schools to be trained and to implement strategies”

“Excellent balance of theory / research and practical applications. Very excited to be given a box of strategies!”
