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

"I have very much enjoyed this course. I considered myself to be a good teacher of phonics, but have now realized that I had gaps in my knowledge and that perhaps the words that I've used to explain spellings may have confused children in the past. I am inspired to use what I have learnt with my own children and I'm looking forward to the challenges of adapting the Sounds-Write approach to Braille. A very useful 5 days - thank you."
