  • Excellent! Clearly presented. Excellent course materials with practical ideas and resources which may be adapted. We look forward to implementing the 6 week programme which is highly relevant to the students we work with. This has left me with skills which may be used tomorrow and a programme to develop and implement in the future. Diolch!
