A great 2 day start with lots to consider and put into practice. Felt the chunking down of the audit tool action planning was a great help and avoided feeling overwhelmed. 

JE – Primary school in S. Yorkshire

I felt at the beginning of the course overwhelmed but by the end of the course very confident and looking forward to putting actions in  to place to discuss in our 1-1 in the next 6 weeks.

I would love to do more training with Compass as I could tell both Adam and Ian were genuinely passionate about what they were doing. The course was thorough without being over whelming. It was extremely motivating – wish I could have Adam in my pocket when meeting my SLT to talk about implementing new approach!!! Thank you so much – loved the two days.

“Excellent training”

Excellent – Thank you so much for a high quality CPD.  ST – Secondary school in Warwiskshire

Excellent training, thank you to you both. Extremely informative, and gave us all a wonderful opportunity to share practice, ideas, and advice.   Can’t wait to make progress with things back in school.   Many thanks.

Informative training.  Good networking.

BK – Secondary school in South Yorkshire

Fantastic course that was well delivered and had good pace. I have come away more confident in knowing the areas that I need to develop in our whole school approach and how to go about this. It was great to hear the views/discussions from other leaders. Really interesting to hear what they are doing and how they will go about implementing change.  I will be recommending this course to our cluster schools.   Thank you.
