“It will save a lot of time for teachers and is also a way of ensuring that all teachers have the same quality of analysis available if there are multiple classes being taught by different teachers. Both NQTs and experienced teachers would find it invaluable in planning new schemes of work; it would literally save days of someone’s time!!” – J Colby, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
