What happens after the training?
We know how important it is for your staff to get recognition for all their hard work. So we make sure that all our trainees receive The Muddy Puddle Teacher Certificate. But only once they’ve completed all four stages of the training.
Once completed, staff can continue their Muddy journey and access more online courses. To find out more about our programme, please click here.
Here are a few practical tips to help your staff prepare in advance of sessions.
What should participants wear?
Don’t worry; we’re not going make your staff members jump into any puddles just yet! However, most of this training will take place outside. So encourage them to wear something suitable for the outdoors. We recommend they bring a warm coat and waterproofs if the forecast is rain.
Where should participants park?
There’s no allocated parking so all participants should park on the street.
Are there resources participants can buy for this training?
Of course! All planning and resource packs can be bought in advance of each session from our Muddy shop! This includes subjects like Maths, English and Science.
These are also available for purchase on the evening itself. For more information, check out our handy product reviews on our YouTube channel.
