I wanted to thank and congratulate you on the excellent training day. You are doing incredible things in a very beautiful setting. It was so interesting and reassuring meeting you and the other teachers. The baffled soul I was when I began all this is feeling a lot better!
|
The enjoyment, confidence and knowledge has come flooding back… it’s given me loads of ideas for my drama clubs. You are one of the best Drama Teachers I have met (and I have observed many over my 11 years of inspections!) and the very best Teacher Trainer. It’s been a real privilege learning from you.

Gabi takes you through the Knowledge section of the Medal exams in a clear and concise way. You are given a booklet and are guided through, which means note-taking is a minimum. Examples are given and practical exercises for the group to do as well. It’s a day full of valuable information and fun!

The course was very, very good value for money and I would definitely attend any others that you offer.

This was a fantastic course, well worth the money, and I highly recommend it.

Thanks so much – I really found the workshop inspirational. Another great day and I look forward to more.

I would definitely recommend this course. You come away with a clear structured approach and understanding of Medal level grades. A huge confidence boost!

An excellent afternoon! The session was really informative, clearly presented and covered all aspects required to start teaching the LAMDA Exams syllabus. I left feeling inspired and confident that I now have the knowledge I need to start up my own classes.

This course is fantastic – I’d been really nervous about tackling the Medals, but feel way more confident now.
