2018 is coming to a close and it has been another busy year for Focus. We have released 9 publications, ran 50 courses with 793 delegates attending throughout the year and delivered 403 inset days in schools. We launched Inspection Coach with 2Eskimos which is an exciting website that helps you write your SEF and improvement plan. This has been nominated for a BETT Award in 2019.
This school year we are celebrating our 25th year in business. Starting off as an Inspection Provider in 1993 in Linda and Clive Davies' house to where we are now running courses, publishing books and providing inset to schools. This year is also the 10th year since Focus moved into head offices in Talking Point a converted church which Clive, Linda and Claire renovated.

We have attended many exhibitions this year. We went on our first international conferences to Abu Dhabi and Dubai to introduce ourselves to international schools doing the British curriculum. It was fantastic to see so many familiar faces and so many new ones.
