What people say about our training
During our pilot in 2021/22 we provided training for people from all levels of our pilot local authorities, from frontline workers and teachers, to strategic leaders, lead members, and councillors. Here is what they said about our training:
Director of children’s services, Buckinghamshire
I’ve seen the language change verbally and in recording, and I’ve only heard positive things from this training.
Virtual school headteacher, Middlesbrough
I highly recommend The Care Leaders to support key stakeholders in understanding the journey through care by those who know it best, care experienced young people. The training they provide is engaging, and thought-provoking and offers professionals a reliable and comprehensive tool kit to enhance their daily practice. Their online platform is easy to access and offers much more than a pre-recorded e-learning course.
Education advisor, East Sussex Virtual School
Attendees reported that they really learnt a lot. It gave them a good understanding of the situation of children who come into the care system, and how best to support them. The key messages were clear with ‘calls to action which we have been able to take away and use to inform our practice. The lived experience informing this course and the storytelling skills of the presenter made the course particularly powerful.
Fostering team manager
Certain phraseology has stuck in my head – ‘being emotionally overwhelmed’, ‘Children come into care not because of what they’ve done but because of what’s been done to them’, The session regarding rethinking responses to what children say was also incredibly powerful and is something I will definitely be looking at with my team.
This training has exceeded my expectations. It was the sensitivity of the delivery that made it special…truly making us see the experience through the eyes of the young people in care.
I now have a better understanding of the care system, and how it affects students. This has led me to be able to better support ‘Looked After Children’.
Brilliant. Really engaging. I felt that way in which you combined personal stories with the data / legal definition side of things was really well pitched. I felt so much more invested in this training than A LOT of other training I have attended.
