Course – Sanity in the Classroom

cpd courses by andy vass

“Superb course. Totally relevant and tremendously
thought–provoking.”

Julie Anne Douglas, NQT, Nottinghamshire

About this 1 day workshop

This unique workshop is all about affirming excellence. During the day you’ll explore what excellent classroom management actually looks, sounds and feels like consolidating current practice and then moving up to the next level.

The central theme is that positive relationships and emotionally intelligent leadership are essential for high quality learning to occur.

During the workshop you will have the opportunity to explore the skills, structures and attitudes that the most skilled teachers routinely demonstrate (but often take for granted).
