What do
learners say?
I was really reluctant to take part in a Webinar type training course as it was new to me but I have found that Heather made it really easy and was very welcoming. I would definately be happy to do it again! - anon, 2018, re: Speech and Language Support for 0-3s e-learning course I have absolutely loved this course both in terms of improving my own learning and knowing I can do bettter with the children I work with - anon, Spring 2019, re: Speech and Language Support for 5-11s e-learning course It was great for me to compare the delivery and style of course. It worked well and I thought the e-learning sessions were very good and clear. I liked the fact that it was interactive and challenged the delegates to think. As a tutor it was easy to follow and run the course. - Beth Devereux, Early Language and Communication Consultant, September 2020, re: Speech and Language Support for 3-5s e-learning course
