This course has given us exactly what we have been looking for. I feel enlightened, informed and empowered. Thank you!

Very clear. Has increased my understanding of ASDAN as a whole

Hand-outs were very useful and boosted our confidence

The trainer was outstanding as he was sympathetic yet very clear in how we move forward as a centre. I have increased my knowledge and am more equipped to improve my teaching of CoPE

The workshop was of a very high quality. The materials and resources provided were relevant and important to the effective delivery of the course

Thoroughly enjoyable and understandable. Very informative

Useful, informative and looking forward to implementing it with our students
