The programme consists of 3 x 1/2 day and 2 full day facilitated sessions over a six week period. The work of these teachers is supported by a coach at each school who is invited to attend the first and final session and supports the teachers’ progress through the programme in their schools. This is an important coaching role that is pivotal to the success of the delegates.


Cost per delegate = £575.00 (a 50% deposit will be invoiced on booking and the remaining 50% is payable on completion of the programme).
