“It was the best course I’ve been on for a number of years. I believe in life-long learning and I’ve been to all the big names and it was absolutely spot on.”   Pauline Dodsworth, English Teacher

“The course has been great for my business. It’s brought me 3 new clients although I only took the course 6 weeks ago!”   Anja Loncaric, Language School Owner and English Teacher

“It was surprisingly energising”
Teacher, Cherwell School

“It was a really good introduction to coaching and a very positive experience. I learnt new tools and skills but as well I learnt things about myself so I got more than I expected.  I’m already using things from the course in my teaching and it’s really helpful for clients.” Eileen Pannone, Co-Director and English Trainer
