    We asked people who attended these sessions last year, what they liked most about our training - here are some of their comments:

    • “It was relaxed and friendly - felt at ease participating, sharing and asking questions.”
    • “I like the group being split into smaller "rooms" on Zoom as it makes it easier to discuss different scenarios.”
    • “I liked how interactive it was and how we were constantly engaged with activities.”
    • “The variety of information provided.”
    • “Clear and concise information.”  “Easy pace to follow.”
    • “How comprehensive it was and how friendly the trainers were.”
    • “The session was really useful and I have noted a couple of additional points that I feel we need to consider while developing our training.”
    • “As a person who has been a volunteer but never managed volunteers before, I found the session very informative.”
    • “I am looking forward to receiving the templates you will provide as a guidance for our own policy and agreements.”
