course attendee quote What people say about the Foundation Phase course...

"Inspirational as always! Have enjoyed listening to Cath. She always understands what it's like on the 'shop floor'. Setting achievable and realistic goals. Giving time to reflect on your own setting and how to improve good practise to make it even better! She makes you feel that you are not alone, but part of a wonderful dream! Diolch!" "So straightforward, sensible, realistic and down to earth! Thank you" "Some really good reminders. Reassurance that not everything is going to change. Plenty of food for thought to take back to school. Great ideas to take forward." Course attendees 27/09/21
