This course was very useful as it will help me in my day-to-day at the club. This course would be very useful in all after school club environments. I will be more comfortable and confident handling a child that requires assistance
I found the course to be well paced and informative. The course tutors were lively and engaging. They were also open to questions and gave knowledgeable, useful, practical answers
much more interesting and interactive than expected! A must for everyone. Thank you
Very approachable trainers and (they) tailored the course well to our needs with our service users
The course was very useful and the trainers were really friendly and knowledgeable. They were keen to answer our questions and tailor (the course) to our needs.
(The) course was very good. Great trainers – good communicators, very patient
This course is fantastic. I have learned the key skills to help me in my job and my life. Would highly recommend
The information was explained in clear detail and it was enjoyable to practice the things that we learned.
very informative training course, with clear instructions of how to move and handle both children and objects correctly. This course has made me feel more comfortable when/if I need to help a child with moving.
The trainer made the course lively, useful and also entertaining making it easier to remember.
It was very helpful in understanding or trying to find the cause of behaviour in people with Dementia.
It was a great, very informative course. The trainer has incredible knowledge about treating people with epilepsy and a nice way of delivering the subject
I think the way that the trainer delivers the course makes it more interesting, a mixture of facts and his own experiences in the field, helps to make the subject easier to understand and retain.
Very enjoyable course, covered all relevant information needed for safe administration of medication.
I enjoyed the course and found it supportive. Itâ€™s a new way to learn which is more open which was really good.
I enjoyed both sessions with Craig, he was very clear with his delivery, and stopped to make sure we understood. Any questions we had were answered. Very professional but also made me feel comfortable.
