What people have said…

“We discuss aspects of what we learnt (at the Training for Primary and Secondary Appraisers workshop) at every leadership meeting! It was the best PD we did all year.”, Glenys Jakicevich, St Francis Xavier Catholic School, Whangarei, 2017

“Recently, I enjoyed the very real privilege of attending a superb workshop conducted by The Education Group on ‘Training for Primary and Secondary Appraisers’. Not only were the presenters, Kerry Mitchell and Nicky Knight, thoroughly knowledgeable in this highly pertinent subject, but conveyed their message in an energetic, clear and thoroughly professional manner. I found it to be be one of the most worthwhile workshops I have attended in my twenty one years as the principal of a large secondary school and commend The Education Group to other educational leaders without reservation.”
