Feedback from previous training attendees:

‘’The facilitators made it so easy to engage and participate, and the workshop was very student centred throughout; nurturing good reciprocal dialogues, and adopting a very practical focus. The facilitators were clearly experienced, made it all sound so straightforward and easy; the time simply flew by- always a good sign I guess!’’

‘’Team were professional, friendly and knowledgeable in their work. Really appreciate the opportunity to attend this training.’’
