‘Excellent speakers- clearly enthusiastic about their topic and very engaging’

‘A very well rounded course, delivering an excellent balance of theory to practical content. I enjoyed the course thoroughly’

‘Everyone was friendly. Suggestions and discussions were actively encouraged.’

‘On the BAOS Teaching and Learning course I realised just how much there is to learn to become a good teacher. For this reason, I decided to undertake the Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Education at Plymouth. Both courses have helped me to take a positive step forward in my understanding of teaching and learning, and my students will benefit from it. Thank you Pippa, Pat, Jane and Lucy for giving me this great opportunity.’
