I participated in this course in March 2019. I am satisfied with the course. The activities and workshops were well-prepared Merganser team members. According to the plan of the course, there were two school visits. We visited Fosse Way School for SEN students and Norton Hill school. The teachers in both schools were very positive and provided a lot of information concerning the schools.

We participated in a course in November 2018. We are very satisfied with the course which was professionaly prepared and conducted in familiar and nice atmosphere. During the course we had a chance to visit two schools, which was a unique experience especially in case of Fosse Way School for children with SEN. We could learn how teachers in the school use various methods and solutions to work with disabled children. Many of them we will surely implement in our school. We met fantastic teachers from different European countries. Talking with them turned out highly inspiring both in private and professional areas. We do recommend this course.

A very enriching cultural, professional and personal experience. The visit to schools allows us to know at first hand some brushstrokes of the English educational system. The course is well structured and the organization works because everything works correctly.

The course, from my point of view, has as a more positive and enriching aspect, the possibility it offers to visit educational centers of the country in which special education students are attended. Centers in which we receive excellent treatment, by the professionals who work in them. On the other hand, during the course I did not find out about the attention of students with disabilities and / or special educational needs. This is due to the fact that the days of the scheduled course, the organization attended to professionals who request different modules, and therefore with different interests and concerns.

A unique experience, both with course providers and the school staff we had visited! It was a very useful professional experience and I recommend it to everyone! And if you wish to experience England, the city of Bath is the right place for it! I was honored to meet all those lovely people, highly professional in their work! The result of it at school is exceptional and amazing!
