POLYMER STUDY TOURS 2016
The three Polymer Study Tours ran last year at Napier, Manchester and London Met and were a great success. The Horners contribute £10,000 each year to the cost of the Tours which together with the money from sponsors covers all the running costs. We are also indebted to the administrative support we receive from IoM3.
Comments from the teachers are always complimentary as illustrated by this sample from this year’s delegates and give confidence in the continued relevance and benefits of the Tours:
“Having just returned from the Polymer Study Tour I would like to say a big thank you to all involved. It is by far the most enjoyable and informative course I have attended. All the speakers were knowledgeable and enthusiastically delivered their part in a way that was easily understood, often with a good dose of humour.”
“The entire course has provided me with lots of inspiration for future lessons and I will certainly be recommending this course to colleagues and fellow student teachers in the future.”
“I have the most positive memories of one of the best CPD events it has been my pleasure to be invited to.”
“This course has been the best teacher CPD opportunity that I have ever been on! Rather than focusing on the ever changing, often political, buzzwords and curriculum that seems to have encompassed modern teaching, this course gave us room to be inspired by the subject matter.”
“Having just completed the course I can honestly say it has been one of the best, most enjoyable, useful, relevant and inspiring courses I have completed as an engineer and a teacher. What I have learnt, seen and experienced will definitely become part of my teaching plans for next year.”
“This was one the best CPD experiences I have had in thirty plus years of teaching.”
