They have worked in diverse environments such as local authorities, schools, residential care homes, business, community organisations, and prisons, delivering projects for a range of different groups, including managers at all levels, young people, teachers, social workers, gangs, employment staff, youth workers, and police. They have experience of working across the UK and Internationally.
We have an open, direct, style in which we ask questions that challenge participants to examine themselves, the way they think and act, and to identify new possibilities through creative thinking.
Our approach to training is based around making learning as real as possible. Our training consists of a mixture of taught and interactive learning; trainers use role-plays, exercises, interactive conversations and insights gained from previous professional and personal experience to ensure the training is engaging and accessible to all learning styles.
We employ a range of mediums that could include classroom style learning, small groups, teambuilding activities, dance and movement, music and spoken word and drama.
