It was good to have time to think about my practice and I got a few positive advice that I am going to take with me. More practical strategies rather than reading over theory would have been great though.

Very interesting to hear points of view from coordinators and to gain insight into dealing with colleagues and parents. Jennifer made it interesting and allowed for interaction.

Thank you Jenny. The course was comprehensive and full of practical advice that will stand us in good stead as we tackle year level coordination.

Great to hear about ways to support new staff-some very practical strategies. Time to reflect on our current practice was great (as it often hard to find this time internally) Checklists are great resources for us.
