What Our Members Say
...............................................................

We have thousands of satisfied members since we began in 1994

Rodney House School – Manchester

We feel the online training delivered by EQUALS have been WONDERFUL.  The relevance and depth of the sessions has been fantastic, Peter is a very knowledgeable man. Having training delivered online has enabled all our teachers to attend and have discussions after the event rather than one teacher attending and disseminating which can water down the content.
Thank you so much and keep them coming!

“For those with a profound learning difficulty (PMLD), learning is best done when the learner is placed in the centre of the curriculum”.
