Feedback from teachers on Natalie's courses

Very informative and useful course. Information delivered in a clear and logical way.
Excellent day. Natalie was extremely informative. Lots of very useful information.
Really practical/strategies that take into account time pressures on SENCOs.
I imagined myself to know a lot about the role but I've learned so much today about strategic planning and can go back to school with lots of new ideas. Thank you!
