The amount of resources contained within the course is unbelievable. I loved being able to pause, find the page in the book or program and then get going again. I think I will need to watch it all again once I have started teaching the units as there is so much to take in with a lot of the content being new .

Takes the hard work out of programming and deciphering NESA requirements. Very well structured, engaging unit for students and teachers, provides excellent scaffolds and differentiation.

Briony Fenton – St Andrew’s Christian School

I am not Tech trained (I’m PDHPE) so I soak up all the information and resources I gain from doing your courses. Having completed your courses has increased my confidence in administering and teaching the new syllabus. I am looking forward to using your units and all the fun activities and learning experiences. It has made me excited about teaching a subject in which I am not trained. Thank you!
