Good to Go Course Descriptions

Course Descriptions

Three weeks before the course starts you will be asked to list your Good to Go targets, where you can list your areas that you would like to focus.

Where there are two or three days available for a course, teachers have provided a rough guideline of possible areas that they could cover on each day to help you to decide which days to pick, however this really is only a guideline, as their starting point will be the Good to Go targets that you set yourself.

Courses that are only on for one day will be covering content applicable to the pupils concerns so there is no description of content.
