We are sharing some photos from our very successful Global Literacy Conference with Michael Rosen held in Brockenhurst last term. Can you see yourself!

It was easily the best training course/conference I’ve ever been on including whilst I was at uni and since teaching! We were made to feel really welcomed and valued plus every event we attended was excellent. It was a real privilege to listen to Michael Rosen too – what an inspiring person!

The course was fantastic! The trainers delivered it in a very professional manner and promoted deep discussion. Their knowledge about what they were teaching was extensive. I find it hard to think of any ways in which the course could be improved
