The R time Training DVD with Training Notes

The R time programme consists of a series of steps which should be practiced by those who are keen to get the most out of R time. We have produced a DVD to help in this training process. We are so keen to ensure that the programme is run as the authors intended that we will include a free copy of the DVD with the first manuals ordered by the school – it can also be purchased separately - click here to go to Order Form.
