'David has drawn upon his extensive and successful school career to help teachers become more effective in motivating and engaging pupils in their learning. Teachers benefit from 'hands-on' input from a very skilful practitioner (verified by school inspections) who has worked successfully with a wide range of pupils, including many with low initial motivation. School managers responsible for both improving the quality of teaching and learning, and for wise spending of limited INSET budgets, benefit from quality 'value-for-money' training of their staff.'

J. V. retired Secondary Head and Schools Inspector

Really enjoyable training session, giving ideas and support for effective classroom management. Really enjoyed session – thank you. Empowering. Relevant, enthusiastic, done the job – very good.  If anything too short. Would have liked a longer session. Very informative, engaging and relevant.  Excellent course. Everything, even secondary strategies, I felt I could adapt/use in my primary classroom.  David was extremely knowledgeable and used his personal experience to back up his points.  We had plenty of opportunity to share experiences/ideas which, as an NQT was very beneficial for me.

Comments from a Training session in Teeside

  'David has worked with 3 of our major departments to move them forward and his whole school training on starters and plenaries was extremely well received by both new and experienced staff. David is able to support and challenge simultaneously and has been extremely generous with his time.'

 A. Q. Head Teacher
'I worked with Dave for 8 years in a school and as an NQT I found him approachable, supportive and full of great ideas for the classroom.  Dave delivered INSET over the years and I have been able to use much of his inspirational training to improve my own teaching. His presentation style is clear, his ideas practical and realistic and above all his energy is infectious!' 

R. G. MFL teacher

 'I worked with Dave for 7 years.  His manner was consistently professional, supportive and positive and the INSET training sessions that he delivered were truly inspirational.  His presentation style is infused with clarity, workable ideas that I have used in my own teaching on countless occasions.  All these things, combined with his good humour, boundless enthusiasm and energy make him one of the best practitioners that I have ever had the pleasure of working with.'
