Feedback from Participants
Shows what quality skills-based lessons and projects can look like. I always wanted to move in that direction, but wasn’t really sure how to do it. I’m all set now!
There are so many resources available to help deliver a skill based, authentic, relevant health education programme. We are not alone – trust what others have worked on and be smart in choice of resources to support your programme.
There are so many Health resources out there. There is no reason a teacher cannot provide a quality Health program.
