'Sharon Phillips ran workshop sessions for Saltley School on two teacher days 2008/9. She took time to come into school beforehand to identify our needs and plan to ensure the sessions met our needs.   The sessions themselves were very well received by the staff who took part. I am happy to endorse Sharon's work.'
