The quality of these sessions was outstanding. The environment of positivity created within the room today amongst a group of vulnerable and reluctant students was an amazing achievement. I cannot recommend these sessions enough!

Very engaging, funny and facilitated fantastic learning experience. The trainer's knowledge of English skills really strengthened the effectiveness of the workshop.

Very positive. Encouragement to get ALL students involved. The trainer had some VERY shy students with a range of additional needs in the one group. He made it safe and comfortable for everyone to contribute, even for those who are usually difficult, disengaged and silly. Good use of humour, lots of positive feedback from the trainer and their peers.

Fantastic session – the trainer immediately puts pupils at ease, had a laugh with them and made them feel really comfortable when they were out of their comfort zone. Pupils really got a lot of the session and enjoyed the day. It was nicely structured with a mix of discussions, group tasks and games. Built up step by step to the main presentation.

It was wonderful to see the students I teach grow in confidence in only a few seconds as a direct result of the Trainers approach. The quality of this session was outstanding. I would outwardly say that all students left the room with increased self-esteem. It was lovely hearing the buzz in the corridor afterwards. You exceeded my expectations!
