East Anglia’s programme has concluded for another year offering four teachers’ courses and ten CPDs. In September, ten teachers attended Disability Awareness in Huntingdon and a week later, nineteen teachers came to Bury St Edmunds for an afternoon seminar on Teaching Adults tutored by Sue Brailsford.
