Overview of educational work delivered by SRtRC Education teams in England
"We had one of these workshops in the school I worked in and it was THE BEST workshop I've ever been to. It was aimed at the children but it blew my mind and has changed my thinking forever."
Teacher from Kingston Park Primary, Newcastle upon Tyne
