What do the teachers and teaching assistants who have attended our courses recently think about the course?

"An outstanding course! Although I have completed a PGSE I actually feel very very confident that I can now teach children to read. This confidence was lacking before I did the SW course because I had not been taught how to teach someone to read. Training delivery was superb with clear explanations and great modelling. The chance to practise teaching all of the lessons helped to consolidate the prior learning. Thank you."
