Feedback from teachers on Natalie's courses

Great course, a brilliant one to do so early on in my SENDCo career!
Thank you Natalie. I really enjoyed today you have really made me excited about looking how I can improve my practice.
Very informative and useful course. Information delivered in a clear and logical way.
Excellent course that has focused me on making the SENCO role more efficient and effective. Food for thought on Provision Maps, whole school training on SEND awareness and Ofsted.
Really practical/strategies that take into account time pressures on SENCOs.
Thank you, well presented and informative - with time to reflect upon own practice and ways in which to be moving forward.
