The training was informative, stimulating and practical. The programme is appropriately structured whilst being flexible enough to respond to young people’s needs and learning styles.

Youth Worker, Sheffield Futures

Often when I am training the gap is resources or useable tools. This is a programme that will save lives and enable young people to feel heard and supported, not patronised.

Domestic Abuse Trainer (Young People’s DA), Sheffield Futures

Cathy is a vibrant and eloquent trainer. The training course is excellent with very useful resources that are completely user friendly for the facilitator and teenager alike. Well worth doing! Thank you.

School Counsellor, Suffolk

I enjoyed this training as it offered different ideas in how to deliver and help young people understand themselves as well as understand relationships. The creative and interactive activities will be useful and valuable to the work I do with families not just teens. All young people should have this knowledge!

Fantastic facilitation, Cathy is very knowledgeable and shared her experiences of running the programme with the group. A thoroughly enjoyable 3 day training which has prepared me to take all the skills i’ve learnt to share with the young people I work with. I’d definitely recommend the course.

This program “needs” to be delivered to help and support our young people.

Excellent training and a really great programme for teenagers!  I’ve been waiting a long time for a suitable format to present to teens – this is it!  Can’t get a group organised quick enough to start facilitating the programme.

Youth Worker, Rotherham

Very effective programme for helping young people understand Teenage Abuse and gain support if needed in this area.

Engagement Mentor, Essex CCEngagement MentorEssex County Council

‘This training gives food for thought.  It is the complete package in terms of delivery to a targeted group  and because of the way it is structured – it frees you to adapt and learn from it, to use in different ways.  I feel really happy to have had this training.  It was a good group experience and I hope I can pass this on to the young people I work with.

Integrated Youth Support Service, RotherhamIYSSRotherham
