CPD – What we offer

Shonette Bason Wood is different, from her look to her energy to her content.  She spent most of her teaching career giving permission to children to learn in innovative ways.  She still teaches one day per week, while providing CPD and Educational training that improves both your happiness and your results.

You may think you have heard it all before, but through her dynamic and unique style she will challenge her audience to reflect on current modes of thinking and energise them to impact change.
