What others have said

I would recommend this to anyone in the education sector no matter what their role. As a principal I have learnt so much from these two days that can only help me make my personal school leadership more effective, giving me the skills to support others around me to develop in their leadership potential.

“I have gained so many skills from this workshop that I will be able to apply straight away. I’m excited not only about being a coach, but also about being a coachee. You learn so much from the coachee when coaching. Very inspiring.”
