A very useful course for new teachers. Great presenter- having an experienced teacher with practical tips and advice are excellent. Having resources already emailed from TTA before the day would be useful.

The course gave an awesome basic look at the requirements and structure of the course. Sometimes the pace of the course was slowed down by questions. It would be good to have an example of a PIP and have a break down of the important components.

Some great resources. Can’t wait to get the electronic version. Well researched. Great interaction amongst group so more ideas from others. Neil was excellent in everything we did. The day went too quickly. Liked the brainstorming at end of session.

I was skeptical initially but very quickly grew (within the first few minutes) to understand. This event was great to get ideas, scope and strategies to teach it. The connectiveness with that participants and the teacher was extremely positive. Many great ideas! The presenter was knowledgeable and approachable.
