"We've just finished our session with Claire and I wanted to write to tell you that it was wonderful! We are enthused and invigorated! We had limited knowledge of cultural capital and this training has really opened our eyes about the potential of inquiry-based learning to engage children in their learning and enjoy more equal opportunities, no matter what cultural capital they possess."
