"These workshops give students have a deep, lasting understanding. They are developing skills that they can transfer to all areas of study and life." - Action Research teacher describing the workshops.

"because of these classes I had a go, I would usually say 'nah' to those questions" - learners discussing a compound interest homework question during workshop 4.
