“The work that we have done with Ambition Institute has been incredible and revolutionised our school. Transforming Teaching is like nothing else out there. It is research based, cutting edge and the training quality is second to none.”
Ashley Weatherhogg, Deputy Headteacher at Ounsdale High School

“The Transforming Teaching Programme has made a significant difference to all of the staff and student. Our teachers are more consciously competent practitioners in their classrooms with a good understanding of how students learn and what has the biggest impact on their students. Our teachers are more engaged in the latest educational research and most importantly, they can then apply this to the learning of the students in their classrooms."
Carene Spooner, Assistant Headteacher at Kinver High School
