What do participants say?

“I found the course to be transformational in a number of ways. Not just in giving you the tools to be a better teacher, but in my work as a writer. The way the course is designed lets you explore what you are interested in, it helps you find your feet as a teacher but also helps you learn about yourself, your work, your path ahead – sometimes unexpected aspects of yourself. I wasn’t sure about doing it initially, would it help my work? Would I get work out of it? The answer is yes to both – it’s turned out to be one of the most important things I’ve done in my career.”
