“The sessions exceeded my expectations. Though I was looking forward to engaging with new theoretical concepts relevant to my role, I was dubious about 6 hours’ worth of CPD based around holding meetings! However, the time was filled really well with meaningful discussion and activities which for the most part I will be able to implement in order improve the quality of meetings held within the Humanities Faculty here at David Nieper Academy.” Chris Ruddy, Head of Humanities

“Prior to the course, as a new middle leader, I had no expectations or preconceptions. However, as a course designed to challenge, develop and transform my thoughts on and ability to plan and organize meetings, my needs and expectations have been far surpassed. Needs were met that I had not even recognized as needs. The ideas and techniques were challenging at times but that they served to allow us to tackle challenging ideas and topics in great depth – something incredibly valuable. Thank you for giving me (us) the benefit of your skills and experience.” Tam Heeley-Cregan, Literacy Lead, David Nieper Academy
