Why should I have Elklan training for my school?

Thursday, May 02, 2013

As an Elklan Tutor, I was discussing what the Elklan training could do for one particular school today. I know the Head Teacher by reputation and understood that whatever I said, he would need to be able to read it for himself. Consequently, prior to the meeting, I decided to read through the section of the Elklan website to which I was directing him, namely the Commissioner section:schools as commissioners http://www.elklan.co.uk/information/commissioners-schools/5-11yrs/case-studies

There are some  tremendously powerful pieces of work which are based upon a range of studies undertaken by Elklan Tutors and Co-Tutors across the UK:
