Really practical and helpful

This is a great podcast; the tips are always really practical and easy to apply to your own work. Craig gets some terrific guests on, and the podcast’s concise format really distills their approaches and philosophies of education into things you can use with you own class on Monday morning. Great CPD for new and experienced teachers alike
