A very easy to understand, well planned seminar that showed accreditation is a manageable light. I ow have a very good understanding of the process. Very insightful and realistic, good tips and workable ideas.
Very thorough presentation. Resources provided enabled participants to not only plan and implement their own accreditation but also share their new knowledge and understanding with colleagues.
Very informative and an excellent package to take back to school.
Informative, methodical and clear
Informative and always fun.
The presenter was highly enjoying and provided a wealth of information from a place of passion and experience. I feel empowered to complete this process as it will improve my practice.
Excellent knowledge of the process and excellent quality examples and activities that helped articulate what is expected. I learned a lot from Nadene’s presentation style. Thank you.
Probably a bit rushed but I also really appreciate the time factor.
Information was top speed and relevant. Really authentic! No wasted time. Answers and questions were relevant. Good Stuff!
Excellent resources and clear explanations on how to write annotations.
A must for all Principals who have staff embarking on the H.A / Lead journey.
The course has provided me with much valuable information about completing my accreditation. Nadene has provided practical advice on the process. I’m feeling a lot more confident! Thank you Nadene.
Very clear understanding of direction and how to support the teachers in my school.
Content was relevant & informative. Presenter was able to articulate clearly the information and broke it down into manageable chunks & delivered it in an engaging manner.
Content was highly relevant to being able to go away and successfully continue to work on accreditation.
Nadene spoke clearly and gave precise information to submit quality evidence. Her expertise gave insight and experience at going through the accreditation process.
Context peerless. Presentation fine for participant needs (reassurance and clarification rather than development).
