“Emma came highly recommended and we certainly were not disappointed.  Emma took the time to get to know us and what we wanted, this meant that our INSET was tailored exactly to our need.  Delivery was engaging, inspiring and practical.  Already we have seen improvements in the quality of teaching and learning outcomes for our pupils. In addition, Emma has continued to have an impact on learning in our school through access to excellent resources and support.” L. Pringle, Headteacher, Lincolnshire
