An absolutely wonderful, inspiring day - I wish I had heard about this earlier. I was very worried about my retirement but now I am really looking forward to completing all my dreams.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Judy Vale, Retired Teacher & School Governor

I am writing to say thank you for your presentation. The feedback has been extremely positive and staff are very appreciative of the advice that you gave. I am sure that some will want to follow this up. It is an extremely important topic and your contribution has raised awareness of various options in a very positive way.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Chris Seeley, Bablake School, Coventry

Can I thank you for the fantastic conference I attended before retiring, it opened my eyes to the options and choices I could make, it reassured me that financially I would be alright and it gave me solid information about my future decisions. I was very grateful to your holistic approach and my whole outlook to retirement changed and it certainly gave me a positive outlook in my last term of working, I couldn't wait to retire, I was excited and it has not disappointed. It was all down to the conference you delivered. The right thing at the right time. 

I have been singing your praises to lots of still working colleagues and advising them to attend!

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Judith Haughton, Retired Teacher

I’m writing to say how excellent I found the course, “Planning for Retirement,” that I attended. The presenters all gave an excellent overview of what one can prepare for and expect in retirement. They were all so buoyant and positive! I came away feeling much more informed and ready to face a situation, retirement, that had been causing me considerable anguish.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Margaret Eva OBE, Retired Teacher, The Bourne Community College

I have sent colleagues on your courses several times, and you will be pleased to know that feedback has been unanimously positive.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Ray Everitt, High Storrs School, Sheffield

The Teachers Retirement Agency gave a clear and comprehensive view of the Teachers' Pension Scheme that was very well received by colleagues… this is an inset experience that all teachers would be advised to undertake

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author David Eggleston, Deputy Principal, Wakefield Girls High School

Just wanted to thank you again for finding a space for me at the Birmingham conference last week. It was very very good! I could do with another six months at work to give me time to sort things out! But there was lots that I didn't know about and which I wouldn't have known about if I hadn't gone, and it was especially good to meet other people who are in a similar boat to me and with similar anxieties (as opposed to everyone at work who is just drooling with envy and think that I can't wait to leave!) I feel much more confident now about retirement - all due to the conference.

On the registration form, in the space for 'contacts', I left the name of our deputy headteacher (who authorises staff to go on courses). I also left the name of the ATL rep who was very interested when I told him about the course and would like to know more so that he can advise ATL members about TRA courses.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Ishbel Curr, Retired Teacher, The Friary School, Staffordshire

I attended the course at Durham last Friday and found it to be one of the best courses I have ever attended... I completed the evaluation form at the end of the course and marked everything 'excellent' but I would be grateful if you could convey my thanks to all who enabled the course to run so well.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Martyn Coombs, Retired Teacher, Bedale High School, North Yorkshire

Thank you it was an excellent day very informative and elements of humour. Well done to all of the presenters. When next in Chester I may have another member of staff interested.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Carole Howard, Hallwood Park School, Cheshire

Many thanks indeed for the seminar yesterday evening. Feedback from staff has been very positive. Paul was a knowledgeable and engaging presenter and went down well with colleagues.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Andrew Madden, Stratford upon Avon Grammar School for Girls

An excellent day, removing anxieties and gained many 'nuggets' to take away. Time for me to reflect on my needs - excellent.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Derek Lion, Willow Lane School, Lancaster

I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone who is considering retirement and indeed I have already given your contact details to another head teacher.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Roger High, New Road Primary School, Cambridge

We have sent individual staff from Godalming College on your pre-retirement courses in the past and they have always come back with good reports!

Please could you convey my thanks. The feedback I’ve received since has been very positive and everyone found the talk very interesting and informative.

Teachers' Retirement Seminar Author Val Hayes, Queen Mary's College

Thank you for providing an excellent course, the details of which I have passed on to all my staff who are over 50. I wish I had attended one sooner!

Can I express a big thank you for an excellent course provided to our staff at Ashfield last night. They all commented on the value of the session and also the effective way that the presenter delivered all the material.
