“Being a new member of staff I was told by my HOLA that I was to attend a Keys for Life workshop so I could run the program. After attending a lot of workshops where you just sit and listen, it was great that the SDERA presenters engaged us right from the start, created discussions, challenged our thinking and walked us through the excellent teaching resource. The day flew by and I feel ready to run the program with my students.”
HPE teacher, Duncraig Senior High School
“The workshop had a bit of everything – research, statistics, classroom activities that I know my students will engage with. Also loved the fact that everything was free!”
HPE teacher, Southern River College.
