ANOTHER VERY SUCCESSFUL TRAINING SESSION
Our most recent training, targeted at refreshing and updating clerks for clerking school admissions and appeals, was a great success. The aim was to ensure that new and existing clerks received comprehensive quality training from our Head of Service, Sharon Miller, to go out fully equipped to deliver a first-class service to schools in the current main round of admissions appeals.
Delegates who came to central London from as far afield as Kent and Leeds highly rated the training with 67% rating it excellent and 33% very good. Some of the feedback was:
“The role play and case study exercises were really helpful in knowing what to do.”
“The supporting documentation provided and the presentation by Sharon [were the most helpful part of the training].”
“The question and answer session was very open and very useful.”
“The presentation…was of a high standard.”
“A well-informed session.”
“Group discussions, previous experiences and sharing ideas was useful to me.”
