Ian has direct experience of clerking appeals and each year represents many parents
and schools at panel hearings.
Appeal panel training is provided at your own venue and at a time convenient to your
panel members’ needs. By providing the venue and refreshments and meeting the copying
costs yourselves, the costs of training can be significantly reduced.
Panel training can be tailored to meet your individual needs, perhaps to focus on
grammar schools or academies, or to combine admission/exclusion training, and can
vary from two hours to a full day’s seminar.
Feedback from recent training includes:
“I thought the training/trainer was excellent” (North East)
“Just to say how good the training was - best we have had in my opinion” (North East)
“We enjoyed it and found it very useful” (Birmingham)
