Comments from delegates:

"I really enjoyed Tuesday especially meeting the man whose SBD resources and videos make my life so much easier. It was great course with very good advice and resources (including venue and refreshments which I thought was exactly what is required at such an event).
Jon Poole, Thomas Mills High School

"Thank you for the training event on Wednesday. I’ve been using your resources for a couple of years now and they’ve been invaluable, likewise the training even was incredibly useful and I’ll definitely be attending again when then next set of structured tasks are released."
Guv Sembhi, Westminster City School

On evaluations, almost everybody replies "excellent" to seminar objectives being met, the structure being appropriate, the delivery style of the trainer, how well questions were met, the content of training materials, the quality of the seminar and the value for money. Nobody has ever answered less than "good".


Note about costs:

In order to keep costs down, paullong.net Training uses venues with reasonable hire charges and focuses on providing high quality content delivery.  This usually involves charitable or church buildings.  As such, teachers should be prepared not to receive the 3 course dinner that used to be provided by exam boards.  However, care has been taken to ensure that the venues are of a high quality and close to transport links.  A buffet lunch is included at all venues except London.  Tea/coffee/water/biscuits are provided throughout the day and some venues include WiFi access.  Fancy hotel branded pens and paper are not included and most documentation will be provided electronically.  You are strongly advised to bring a laptop with you to training seminars.  You can be assured of high quality training.
