“A great course, with lots of opportunities to learn new skills. I had a fantastic, professional and supportive mentor, who was previously a teacher and understood the pressures and timings of a primary educational setting and he was able to share from his experience how different aspects and skills might benefit my class and my school.”

“The course provided me with lots of aspects of technology that I otherwise would not have thought about or reflected upon in my daily practice. The course has supported me to enhance my use of digital technologies to improve the learner experience.”
