WHAT TEACHERS SAY
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.
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.
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!
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.
I have sent colleagues on your courses several times, and you will be pleased to know that feedback has been unanimously positive.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
An excellent day, removing anxieties and gained many 'nuggets' to take away. Time for me to reflect on my needs - excellent.
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.
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.
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. I will definitely be contacting you again in a few years so that we can repeat the session with new retirement aged staff.
A brilliant course! Very enlightening and great speakers who spoke with clarity and knowledge. Thank you!
Just a brief note to say a huge thank you for the absolutely brilliant course yesterday. I learned so much and felt very reassured about the future. I am now talking to East Sussex LEA about your fantastic courses and I have emailed all my Headteacher colleagues.
It was extremely helpful for my staff and most of us have had very useful follow-up sessions.
A quick note to say thank you for the Retirement Seminar which took place here last night. The presenter did a great job and the feedback I have had has been entirely positive. Colleagues clearly found the session very helpful and I think a lot of people were reassured and encouraged by what they heard.
An excellent and informative course which has helped me consider all options regarding retirement. I cannot recommend more highly.
I am feeling excited about my retirement now and much more confident about managing my retirement income
A very though-provoking, challenging, frightening yet reassuring day. I am delighted I attended, even though retirement could be 5 years away
An excellent day. I came thinking retirement was just a word I say on a regular basis... the biggest thing for me is I now feel more optimistic
A very useful and thought provoking course, some really useful nuggets of information
Many thanks for the whole day. Really helpful and informative!
The course has been most informative - I think I have the information I require
A very informative course relayed in very simple terms for the 'lay-person'
An excellent course, very relaxed and very informative. I now feel ready to press ahead with my retirement plans.
A very informative session. Thank you for making it very accessible.
An excellent course - I feel that I've had an economics lesson too!
I really enjoyed the day. I have attended previously - and this time I have learned even more!
A wealth of information delivered by people who really know their stuff!
A really informative and useful day. I feel much better equipped to make an informed decision on retirement
Excellent presentations - the most interesting course I have attended for some time. All relevant, informative and very useful. It felt that all speakers had our best interests at heart.
If the day had been a lesson, it was "Outstanding"
This really is an excellent course. A lot to take in, in one day. In all my 30 years of teaching, this is the best course I have ever been on.
Excellent! I wish I had done this earlier. I've got "peace of mind" and am looking forward to my individual consultation
Absolutely brilliant course - so informative and helpful. I wish I had known about the courses sooner.
Searching the internet is all very well, but this day certainly raised the key issues that need further investigation
I came to his course knowing a little about retirement planning. I left with lots of information and the right questions to ask once I do retire
