Feedback from previous delegates:

“I have gained deeper insight into the approaches that we can use to engage children and encourage their learning. OTAP has made me realise that I could be stretching the children a little more and has given me so many ideas and tools plus increased confidence”

“OTAP has opened up a new understanding of my role, giving reinforcement to the whys and hows”

“I feel my practice will improve, especially my questioning skills”
