What people have said about our Live Classroom sessions

“I found the session very informative and I was able to link much of the content to my practice. I know this will inform my practice in the future and how to work with children, carers and parents.” Training participant

“I thought Richard’s delivery of the training was excellent. It was very engaging and I particularly liked how he related every aspect back to real life examples. This brought what he was teaching to life and helped me to reflect on some of the cases I have been working on.” Training participant
