"The Headmaster and Governors are really pleased that we have so many Pastoral staff now trained by you and I can already see the difference coming through in people's confidence and awareness when dealing with welfare issues"
“It made a real difference to have training that was tailored to our needs as counsellors working with young people, helping us to identify the times when we need to be concerned, even when children are unable to say directly what is happening to them, and how we can best enable them to get the help they need.
It was an interesting and productive day, and I think will have made a real contribution to our ability to work safely”
"Using the risk assessment grid, fanstastic way to analyse prior to referral. I've been in this role for 10 years and it's the first time I have seen it"
