This innovative course contains straight-talking, myth-busting, back-to-basics, step-by-step common sense from start to finish. It is a no-holds-barred look at why lessons go wrong and what we can do about it today. Expect an honest appraisal of the strategies that hold us back and an easy-to-apply antidote to the touchy-feely stuff that we all know just doesn’t work! Practical with a capital P and brimming with pragmatism - the definitive disciplined approach is for every teacher who loves their subject and wants to teach free from disruption.

The trainer will question conventional ‘wisdom’, challenge conventional good practice and focus on the everyday nitty-gritty of what really works. Be prepared to have your preconceptions shaken and rejoice at the down-to-earth commonsense approach that will put you, the professional, firmly in the driving seat!
