JO BIRD, COMBE DOWN C OF E PRIMARY SCHOOL
“Probably the best course I have ever attended! Insightful. Ollie is very knowledgable and the quality of the resources was superb. Attending this course will have a huge impact on both staff, pupils and my school. ”
LOUISE DAVIES, ANGLESEY PRIMARY SCHOOL
“Ollie’s knowledge is quite frankly astounding. This is without doubt the best inset I’ve done in 24 years as a teacher. I would urge all pastoral leaders to do this course. Two days out of school is difficult but worth it.”
JACKIE TURNER, REDMAIDS HIGH
“Ollie Welsby was truly excellent. He was clear, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very approachable. Having a small group of people on the course meant that I was willing to participate more readily. His experience, advice and passion for the subject was inspiring.”
