What Teachers Say

Thank you . Was great to identify different ways of interacting and communicating with parents. Great to share ideas with other nqts.

Gave me lots to think about, especially as regards different family situations.

The content was clear and informative. Really useful ideas on how to communicate with parents and break down barriers.
