What people are saying about our CPDL: 

"This webinar was excellent- strong fantastic delivery with really clear tangible ideas- ideal for the challenging situations we find ourselves in. Presenters were excellent. Thank you so much."


"Really useful course and gave me lots of ideas to support pupils transition back to school and continuing in the future. I was anxious about the breakout rooms but it was nice to discuss with other professionals from around the country."
