"Brookfield provided we with excellent opportunities to observe expert colleagues and see best practice in operation. The ECT mentor and in school training provided by Brookfield gave me the perfect preparation for teaching at Brookfield. The Steplab training was useful in gaining knowledge in areas that I have not come across before and is vital in everyday teaching."
