Teachers comments:

Just a quick email to thank you and Josie for all your work in preparation for our trip and indeed on the day.  You both have a great way with the students.  I was very happy with your delivery of the fieldwork day as were the students.  They are feeling very confident now about completing their coursework booklet which is great.  I feel you really motivated them on the day.  I definitely will be recommending Gartan OEC to my colleagues.
