What our trainees say

Head teacher

Joe, Lisa and Ron really understood the demands of my job. The training shifted my perception of how to approach some of the difficulties that as a school we’ve been facing and enabled us to make real progress resolving them. In terms of the impact on my own practice and that of my team this has been the most productive training I’ve done in a long time.

I can’t recommend this training enough for new teachers. I feel so much more confident in dealing with challenging behaviours. The best thing is that I can see my students are happier and more confident too.

From the first training session Joe helped me to think about my role in a completely different way. I couldn’t believe how quickly I adopted a coaching mind-set. There are no short cuts with this programme but you do start to see results straight away.

Senior Youth Worker

The NLP techniques Ron taught us are so easy to use and their impact is huge. The atmosphere at the centre is much more positive and productive because we’re dealing with less confrontation.

I’ve wanted to join the school leadership team for a while but was unsure how to make the move successfully. Lisa’s training and one-to-one support gave me the confidence to do it. Having a qualification from the Institute of Leadership and Management gave the school governors confidence that I was ready for promotion too.
