What made you choose the Real Training course over other options?
I was looking for a course which I could complete online with tutor support. After looking at a number of different options Real training suited me best.
What was your experience of learning with Real Training?
I was impressed with the support that I received, my tutor was very helpful in alleviating any concerns and clarifying any queries that I had. It was easy to access and the process was straightforward. Overall, I had an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
How has the course helped make an impact at school?
My project was to establish a middle tier of leadership. The course was able to help me by giving me the confidence in bringing my ideas to life in a practical setting. I was able to develop a system which worked well for the school and benefitted the children. The school had an Ofsted inspection soon after I had completed my project. Middle leadership was a huge aspect of the inspection. The inspector was very impressed with the middle leadership structure and how it had been thought out and implemented throughout the school. The school received a grading of Good with Outstanding so I was very pleased.
How has the course helped develop you as an educational professional and what do you hope to achieve with the new knowledge/skills in the future?
The course has provided me with confidence, I have knowledge of educational models around the world, this assists me in making informed decisions and has an impact on my decision making.
