    I've been to 3 of Carly's courses and now one online. One of the best things about these opportunities is the interaction and opportunity to network with other passionate Food Tech teachers which is a rare and valued opportunity. Online is good but face to face is excellent! (Bloody COVID :(

    Lara Ephron, Emanuel School


    Brenton Hawken, Temora High School

    My preference was to attend the course in person, however, due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, this was understandably not an option. Still, I found the online course to be really engaging and easily accessible. Upon completion of the course, I felt I had a really good understanding on how to effectively deliver each of the content areas and I am really excited about doing so. Loved the layout of the course. Thank you.

    LOVED it! I've already put in for next years budget in my KLA to participate in the Yr 10 FOT course as well. The resources are amazing and as a newer teacher it was great to see the innovative ideas in relation to class activities which will really make it more hands on and enjoyable for the students.
