“I attended the Understanding Autism Training via Zoom its was very well organised and full of information to take in and learn, Mandy is a great trainer she has lots of knowledge that she loves to share.

I’ve been taking safeguarding training for many years and different courses have different amounts of information and interest. Taking a course with Mandy got the balance just right.  The information was relevant and necessary, and the language used was appropriate. These are sensitive and thought-provoking, as well as being informative. As a deputy Manager of a nursery, I also have to send colleagues on Safeguarding training, I know that they will get the most in-depth training with Mandy, and I don’t have to worry about any topics not getting covered. Although the topic is not pleasant a pleasant one. Each topic is dealt with, with respect. Mandy knows an awful lot about this topic and is very passionate about making sure everybody leaves having learnt from her and her experiences.  I highly recommend Mandy Monk and would not go or send colleagues anywhere else.                                                                                                                                                JC – Level 1 and 2 Safeguarding, February 2022

“The training was very effective – updating my knowledge and understanding. I learnt about quite a lot of new changes and ideas that I will implement in my practice as well as learning about new ways of identifying safeguarding issues.                                                                                                    GB – Safeguarding Level 1, September 2021

JS– Level 2 Safeguarding, December 2017

Could I please say how fantastic the training was which Mandy Monk did for us on Saturday. It was the Level 2 Safeguarding.
The hand-outs were very informative and I felt the whole package of delivery was very professional. I actually booked your company as I had previously attended the ‘Designated person’ training with yourself and felt the training was of a high standard. The best safeguarding training I have attended in 25 years. I would not hesitate to book your company again. The trainer had ‘real’ knowledge of case studies and also spoke about up to date policies needed.
The girls we had joining us from our Anfield branch went back and told their manager how good the training was.
