'The training day went extremely well - we all enjoyed it a great deal and found it stimulating and most fruitful. The TSI trainer was efficient, to the point, enormously helpful and effective. Great care had been taken to design the day to meet our specific needs and to familiarise herself with the Model of Education that we are using. We very much appreciated this.  All in all it was a complete success - now it is up to us!'Read MoreDirector of Studies, London Girls School, 2016
