What people say

“My success is absolutely down to your excellent standard of instruction, and the way that you taught us. You taught us Health and Safety very thoroughly and you ensured that we understood it – you did not treat it as a cramming exercise, just to pass an exam. Consequently: even a couple of months later, I can still clearly visualise many of the examples and cases that you quoted, in order to bring a rather dry subject to life. I am delighted; my wife is amazed.”

Bryan Price Plant Manager, British Steel

““A big Thank You for making this way more engaging than it has any right to be!! And for all the support and encouragement.”

Pat Morris Estates Manager, Consortium Academy Trust

““Firstly I would like to say thank you for all your hard work in delivering the course, I can honestly say that the way in which you delivered the course was fantastic. Hands down the best H&S Trainer I have ever come across in my 23 years within the leisure industry, you made a topic which is deemed to be boring interesting, valid and on many occasions funny. Due to your teaching techniques I feel that the content has stuck in my head so much more than it normally does.”

Barrie Furness Customer Service Manager, East Riding of Yorkshire Council
