"Having taken part in many conferences, webinars and online training over the past year, I must say that the format here was excellent; the ability to go off into Breakout Rooms and be led by PTI Development Partners really helped consolidate the excellent training from the speakers. The timings really allowed for as much participation as possible from a range of our Leadership Team and I think the lengths of the sessions were well timed too. "
"Excellent organisation, brilliant speakers, extremely well facilitated discussions. "
"Thanks very much indeed for organising an inspiring event at a difficult time - I really look forward to more face to face events in future! "
"The input by Professor Paul Miller was the absolute highlight for me. He helped me rephrase my understanding of inclusion and better articulate how every child has the opportunity to take centre stage in their learning and development. I am keen to share this with my team(s) and beyond. "
"Providing research based, expert training has helped to inform my thinking now as we return to school. Having access to engage with the quality of speakers, colleagues and ideas has inspired me once again to promote high quality subject teaching and learning in my own school, and to look to build more links to PTI with schools in Cumbria. "
"There are so many ideas and so much inspiration which I will be taking back to my school, knowing that others are being so creative in their approaches gives us the confidence to continue on this creative path. "
"The speakers were very different but all were inspiring and challenging with the quality and depth of their understanding."
"I have thought more deeply about what it is that I want the children in my school to learn rather than what the teachers in my school need to teach. I have been thinking about how that subject knowledge develops over time and how the curriculum in my school should empower the children in my school with the firm foundations they deserve for the next phase in their journey."
"Opportunity to reflect on our school curriculum, listen to others and have my thinking challenged has been incredibly useful. The quality of the speakers has been excellent - very inspiring. The time to talk in the round table discussions was very useful to further and consolidate my thinking "
"It has made me think differently and more deeply. As a new head it has structured my thinking and given me confidence to move forward. "
"First proper leadership residential and I'm impressed. I've not found myself overly motivated by other CPD/courses, but this event has been excellent."
"It has clarified my thinking about the importance of deciding what is important for the children at my school; the need to trust my instincts about what I know to be relevant for my school community. I am now clear that I need to take my time - choose one thing and do it well, investing time into deepening teacher’s subject knowledge. "
