Safeguarding and Best Practice course: September 2019

I attended the Safeguarding and Best Practice course given by Jill Webb as part of my ongoing training with a local CIC I am involved with. As somebody who believes passionately about protecting those who are most vulnerable in our societies I am always willing to attend these sessions because you just never know when you will next find yourself in a situation where your safeguarding course gives you the knowledge and confidence to be in a position to look after those who are not capable of doing so.
I thoroughly enjoyed Jill’s presentation and the people I met on this course were all just as passionate about looking after our most at risk groups as myself. A fabulous way to meet people in different settings to the company I work with. Lots of new connections made. Thank you Jill for a really well informed session.

With her guidance and notes our training has now been CPD certified and rolled out to staff.

Jill has also provided us with feedback on our policies and procedures to ensure that these are consistent with the training content and up to date with current legislation.

Having had Jill’s input has made us confident that our training, policies and procedures are of a high standard and meet the standards required by our regulator.

It has been great working with Jill, she is approachable and ready to help whenever we needed her.

Feedback from staff:

  • "It wasn’t at all arduous, quite enjoyed doing it actually"
  • "This training was designed and presented really well. It was a lot more manageable than some of these online training I've completed recently!"

May 2019: Paediatric First Aid course

Read a PDF summary of feedback.

Feedback from a client who attended a one day first aid at work course: 

Hi Jill, You recently conducted an emergency first aid course which I attended.  You may recall I asked you at the end of the session about diabetic hypo and hyper. Would you believe that just last week whilst on holiday in the lake district I had to attend to a hypo. His levels went down to 1.4. We had the defib out ready and I was surprised about how calm I felt about the prospect of having to use it (that could well have changed had I actually had to go through with it) due to your tuition. I managed to get his level up to 1.5 through Lucozade but he kept fleetingly going unresponsive. The first responders came and so did the ambulance so they took it from there.

March 2019

Feedback from a client who had been part of a group attending a first aid course. This group had little prior knowledge and it was positive to see how encouraged they were by the teaching style:

Thank you for the good course, it was quite intense work for the brain to take it all in and I was in need of a good rest when I came home!  I also wanted to say as a small personal feedback that you explained things in a really excellent way at the beginning of the day but later on, I think our brains were a bit overloaded and I noticed that some other people, who just like me, were a bit confused about instructions. Thank you for taking into account tired brains in the afternoon and going in small clear steps so one doesn’t feel overwhelmed.  I admit that with all my questions I may have added a bit to the overload and apologise for being so eager and keen to learn this seriously!

Paediatric First Aid Course May 2016

I recently ran a Paediatric Course for a small group in Northowram - what a great course it was. Feedback from the participants:

  • 'I thought this event was very good and would definitely recommend!'
  • 'I enjoyed being part of a small group - felt like we could practice more and questions were answered quickly. It did not feel like a classroom environment so was less formal and more relaxed which made it more enjoyable rather than being bored'

Interestingly, one participant commented that she had last done the course in a group on 30!! We would feel this is far too large - we work on one tutor for 12 candidates - and the learner in question said how much more you learn in a smaller group.

Bradshaw Scout Group May 2016

A really new venture for Jill Webb Training working with Steve Booth (SEB Training)…30 Explorer Scouts and Leaders needed First Aid training for their roles which include voluntary leadership, Duke of Edinburgh Award and leading varied trips and expeditions.

The ‘Frist Response’ Scouting and Guiding qualification was delivered by 2 tutors over 3 evenings, totalling 6 hours teaching.   As this number of participants was a new venture for us, as was delivery of this qualification over 3 evenings, we asked every learner to feedback one positive thing and one which they would change if we ran the course again.

Overall, feedback was really positive, with young people and adults alike being pleased to have gained the qualification and finding it useful to do in a usual meeting time rather than at a weekend.

Specific positive feedback:

  • I learnt a lot – excellent course – interactive (x 4)
  • Practical and hands on (x3)
  • Explained well and easy to understand
  • Clear step by step instructions made it easy to understand (x3)
  • I liked the way the session were planned out
  • Interactive, checked everyone understood, liked short sessions (x2)
  • Because it was interactive it was memorable/ participation helps me to remember
  • Clear instructions – great teachers
  • Lots of information on real life situations
  • I liked the way we were reminded of what we had learn so we would not forget

Feedback From ‘Communicating Effectively’ Workshop March 2016

For 21 members of a number of teams who work across sites but need to be in touch with each other regularly…
Each participant was asked to score (on a scale of 1 to 10) how confident they felt with communicating effectively before the workshop and then at the end. 20 out of 21 participants rated their confidence as having increased by at least 10%, with 5 participants saying their confidence had increased by 30% or more.

Team members were asked what the best thing about the workshop was:

  • Relaxed environment (x2)
  • Fun and interesting (x2)
  • Feeling involved
  • Very active and everyone was involved (x6)
  • Meeting new staff members and getting involved
  • Tutor was interesting and engaging – lots of food for thought
  • Enjoyable
  • Trainer was clear and interesting
  • I learnt how communicating affects others and how first impressions count!
  • Very relaxed, relevant and good content
  • Sharing scenarios, thoughts and ideas
  • Moving about – not just sat down (x2)
  • Variety of activities….jam packed….
  • Engaging trainers
  • Lots of new tips for communicating effectively

Team members were asked what they would change about the workshop:

  • Nothing (x18)
  • Make sure all managers do this course! (x2)

Every participant could identify at least one thing they would do differently as a result of this workshop,…including

  • Practice my empathy skills

Feedback from our March 2016 Confidence Building Course

This course ran with a group of parents at a Children’s Centre.  8 parents attended, and:

  • 7 out 8 felt it helped them to understand what self-esteem is and how to build this;
  • 8 said it helped them to identify stress and understand better how to manage it!

And perhaps most important…all those who answered would recommend this course to other parents and rated the course as very good or excellent

Good training is about making a difference…so great to get this feedback and I hope all the parents are working on the ideas we exchanged! 

Feedback from our January 15th 2016 Emergency First Aid at Work course

Great day, feel more confident and able to assess a situation better now...

The course does what is says on the tin - helps you to know what to do in an emergency

Brilliant course - recommend it to anyone, very enjoyable day

The scenarios threw you in at the deep end but you realise you are able to deal with them to your own amazement

Tutors were friendly and made the course really enjoyable

Worked with an organisation who provide services for a local authority

Client feedback: Just wanted to thank you for yesterday I've had a brief look through the evaluations and it was all very positive feedback I will send these onto you when I get chance early next week hopefully. You even managed to get staff involved who usually  shy away from these kind of activities so that was excellent. It was quite amusing to see everyone been so competitive!!
