New favourite place to hang out…

Actually - this one is in NYC! But we have been there too!

It’s the Apple Store, St. David’s Centre, Cardiff! More CPD! More fun! More creativity! More help from Jason and Jack – our friendly One-to-One tutors! Thank you!!!! (A Starbucks flat white is always good for concentration too – and maybe hyperactivity!)

Aberbargoed Primary School

Just back from spending a rewarding 2 days with the staff of Aberbargoed Primary. Thank you for the welcome… and the commitment you showed to the training and to each other!

It was great to see evidence from every age range – and to hear anecdotes about learning moments from every staff member in the school. (If only the ‘promised funding’ from the Directors of the Effective Learning Programme was a reality!!)

Hope the rest of your ‘school build’ goes well. Look forward to our next visit and exploring ‘Job-Embedded CPD’ with you!

EY Practitioners – Stirling is lucky to have such a talented bunch!

Just spent 3 days with a great group of Early Years Practitioners in Stirling! Tiring for all – but lots of learning and laughter….and chocolate! Keep doing what you are doing….and keep in touch!


Great to catch up with Lynda and Shona again! Lynda – wishing you all the best in your new job…!!

Off to Scotland…

Andrew has ‘flu’! I get to drive! An interesting moment when Galashields (and its multiple roundabouts) completely confused me – so ASDA car park became a ‘non-planned’ addition on our route to Dunblane via Edinburgh!

Actually – Edinburgh was planned! Good to catch up with Kathy and John again and engage in a discussion about learning, passion, beliefs and Curriculum for Excellence!
