What people say...

I think the units are very good and have saved me hundreds of hours of work, which, after 22 years of teaching, is a blessing.

Mr Phil Andrews. Head of Design and Technology, St Joseph's Catholic High School

They were incredibly supportive when I requested support materials whilst awaiting on a pre-release, very efficient. The bulk resource buy has saved my department hours and hours of planning time with the new specification, alleviating a lot of stress.

Joanna Bond. Design and Technology teacher, The Romsey School
