The course was really interesting as a training teacher. I have seen first hand on placement how challenging some children can be to themselves as well as other. This course gave us some great strategies for understanding and managing behaviours.
What people say about us
I think this training should be done by every new foster carer. I regret not receiving this training 10 years ago when I started. Really interesting, engaging and thought provoking.
Really interesting, I learned lots of new info with great psychological insights. Would love to do more training with this company.
Great interaction with everyone, gave great tips and advice about physical intervention within the foster care role. Adapted the training for my needs as a single carer too.
By far the most interesting and useful training I have ever done on the subject of challenging behaviour and de-escalation. I wish I had had this training three years ago.
Our trainer was brilliant at making us all feel at ease and trained us well. Thank you.
Thank you. Really interesting and the trainer’s knowledge was brilliant. Really helpful! – “Young Carer” support worker
Excellent trainer – varied knowledge, answered questions in a relevant and interesting way. Pace was great and repeated when he saw we needed. Psychology insights very interesting. Very approachable. – Mental health support worker
We found the training very informative and helpful. The discussions around preventing challenging behaviour, and why incidents happen in the first place, really helped us develop our own understanding and strategies. Andy made the practical session interesting and fun, and we have used the techniques successfully. We are very glad to have had the training, which was reasonably priced, and would recommend it to other schools and organisations.
Excellent, hands on learning made fun and interactive. trainer answered every question and was very informative but also fun.
