Tutor information and course feedback

  After one month, delegates are contacted to find out what impact the course has had in school. This is what delegates have said: "It certainly made us think, and as a result we have tightened up quite a few of our processes. Our staff register is now a more accurate focus – rather than people forgetting to sign out, we now follow things up. We have also looked at where equipment is around school as a staff walk and undertaken staff training with everyone – a useful course."
