Teacher SACE Stage 2 Biology

"As a beginning Year 12 teacher, I am so glad I chose these training sessions. The presenter I had is surely one of the most knowledgeable teachers in the state. I can highly recommend these for teachers new to Year 12 subjects, and, to those who want to enhance their knowledge even further." D. Kildea

" I found that the content covered and the leader's ability to link between topics showed so much additional clarity that it has increased my confidence as a beginning SACE teacher. I can now give my students a very rounded and thorough understanding of the curriculum. I would highly recommend this program to any new or even existing SACE teacher" C Kemp

"Excellent. I've been teaching Year 12's for nearly 30 years and I still found lots of useful strategies I can take back to the classroom and use next week! Thank you very much for the opportunity to attend these training seminars. " Tanya
