Feedback from a management team who I supported over the period of a year through use of the Team Management Profile and team and individual coaching sessions

Feedback from senior manager:

  • I would like to thank you for all your work and support with [person's name removed for confidentiality] and the team, I think it worked really well, from me giving you an overview of their development needs as well as input from the manager, with you giving me little updates along the way. It was really useful for me to talk to team members about the sessions you had done with them and about how they would put the learning into practice, and they have given me examples where they have done this. They have clearly benefited from the work you have done. I think having the review session which I came to worked really well and definitely should be part of the process. 

From team members:

  • From my end, I have really enjoyed all of our sessions – the hours have flown by!  In particular the opportunity to talk through issues and challenges with someone who is so experienced and insightful. You quickly understand the crux of the problem and then give excellent advice, making it feel really practical by relating it to your own experiences. I think that is the best bit of your training offer – how human it feels. I can’t think of anything I’d improve – its all been really beneficial for us as a management team.
  • Everything we did especially the 1 to 1 sessions were really useful - discussing the work issues and the way forward were really good and beneficial I can’t think of anything we could have done better.

Quote from 2 childminders who renewed their paediatric first aid during the most recent lockdown..

We both really enjoyed the course and think we picked up more from this one that would enable us to help at a practical level than previous ones - which is what is what I think it is really all about. As you said at the time its about '1st aid' - the professionals provide the '2nd aid'!

September 2020: Feedback from a child development virtual training session for a local authority

  • Really positive to have a small group and therefore more conversation. Will take more confidence forward in terms of stages of development - thank you
  • Thank You the training has been really useful and interesting. I will be going to do some reading of the books which have been suggested.
  • One thing I am going to do is do more research on milestones, particularly refreshing when working with a new child
  • I have enjoyed the session it has been great to get a refresher on child development and feel confident to implement and read up on the suggested books.
  • Thank you Jill :) One thing I will carry forward is to be more actively aware of children's development and passing concerns forward to social workers/relevant professionals if there is something I pick up on to make sure it has been raised. I have really enjoyed the training and it's been nice to have a small group and talk to everyone
  • Going to read the book The Silent Guide. The session was informative and interactive. Thank you.
  • I liked it being such a small group and the breakout rooms is a good way to still be able to learn a lot from other people's knowledge and experiences
  • Jill I thought you were really engaging and talking to different people and getting different perspectives was really useful. I am going to do some more reading and research round adolescent development to support my evidence based practice.

Feedback Received from Paediatric First Aid: First blended course run August 2020 - 2 three hour sessions run by Zoom and then one day face to face

How did participants find it?

Comments

  • I much preferred to do the course over Zoom as I took more in.  It can be a lot of information all at once so splitting it up really helped
  • Jill really helped to understand an talk through everything – thank you
  • I preferred the Zoom sessions and then a face to face session on the Saturday
  • I enjoyed the Zoom part and just one Saturday!
  • This is the first First Aid course I’ve attended but I think half Zoom and half face to face would be better for me
  • I feel the Zoom training was great, very ideal.  Prefer half Zoom and one Saturday
  • I liked it half/half as it breaks it up for everyone (slower)
  • Really pleased with the Zoom half.  Jill did a mixture of things to keep us engaged – breakout rooms, white board, YouTube videos. Jill was fun and engaging. The Saturday session – Jill was very interactive which helped me remember the contents.

Feedback Received From Coaching Sessions: Summer 2020

  • I really enjoyed yesterday's session on resilience and it made me do a lot of refection.  Many thanks again.
  • Thank you for yesterday’s session. I found it really interesting.  
    Thank you very much for the session…I was apprehensive when I saw only three of us…
    Really positive, lively and informative…
  • Could you send me the slides for this morning's webinar about boundaries - really interesting session btw. Thanks 
    Thanks for doing the session on professional boundaries, it was really useful!
    Thank you very much for today's session, it was very helpful.  Thank you again for being such a great coach! I've really enjoyed your sessions that have been informative and fun. 
  • I found using the SWOT model at the beginning of the course really useful with gathering my thoughts and with goal setting and STAR model, I applied when reflecting.
  • It has been enlightening looking at how we could revamp our interview skills and starting to think about putting ones best foot forward, dealing with nerves and understanding little clues that could create false first impressions.
  • I have thought deeply about reflection and resilience given that Social Work involves using both skills in our every day working/ life and would like to read more around research on how these two interact outside the social Work field for a wider perspective.
  • The Coaching sessions have been stimulating and delivery has been encouraging.
  • Thank you for a brilliant Coaching Session. I learnt a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the session.
  • I really enjoyed the session.

Feedback from first Level 3 Safeguarding course run virtually, June 2020

  • I found it a great course to undertake. I did actually think that it would be a good refresher but couldn’t believe how much I learnt. It was so lovely also to be part of a small group. 
  • Some of the training I’ve attended recently have had 100+ people on and it’s too many. 
  • Thank you for making it enjoyable. 
  • I thought the course was great, gave me lots of additional knowledge that will be of benefit to me in my role.
  • The training was really good, and it was interesting to see you developing your understanding of the technology!  Particularly good was the beginning where you checked out what we already knew and the structure overall and loved the contextual safeguarding and actually thought we had quite a good conversation.
  • Course worked really well for me, and I found it really useful and can certain use it when delivering other training, only issue I have was sound problems that were mine not yours!
  • Thank you for offering us places on the course. I found it interesting, useful and well worth doing.
  • Doing it virtually  may not be the same as face to face but I felt it was a good experience – and was covered in 6 hours rather than 6 hours plus the travelling.
  • In practical terms it was a good mix of activities.
  • Even when face to face trainings can resume I think this option will attract some people depending on their other circumstances.

  • Thanks for the course Jill, that was very useful.
  • The course flowed well and at no point did it seem to drag.
  • I felt your manner to learners was supportive and at no point did I feel you were being patronising.

Feedback from a blended paediatric first aid course – 3 sessions run face to face and one virtually

  • Hi Jill I really enjoyed learning about resuscitation and how to perform CPR, as well as getting to practice on dummies.  The whole Course was extremely helpful and I feel more confident should a situation occur.  There were no negatives, it was all very insightful.
  • I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for such a brilliant Course.  The content, pace, level of interaction and delivery were the highlights for me.  I never felt bored or uninterested on any of the sessions. 
    The virtual session worked really well, thank you to all involved for arranging this so we could complete our Course. 
    I really did enjoy the time I spent learning so thank you again.
  • You do deserve our thanks and gratitude as the Course has been thoroughly helpful.  Hope to see you again soon for further learning.
  • Think everyone else will agree that you deserve our thanks and gratitude for delivering the Course.   It was very enjoyable and you made it a great balance of fun whilst also learning a valuable skill to have.
  • A huge thank you for putting yourself out in order for us to complete, you were so lovely and you made it a really enjoyable experience.

Feedback from a shortened virtual first aid refresher course for a staff team working out in the community through the coronavirus period

  • I enjoyed the course and I feel that if I am required to give First Aid over the next few weeks, I will be more effective than I would have been without the course that you delivered. I think this is a positive response to the unique challenges of delivering full refreshers at the moment
  • I really enjoyed this training. I understand the need for the full training on the dummies to experience the chest compressions etc but this style refresher training was a breath of fresh air!
  • I enjoyed the small group so everyone had a chance to speak and we did not have a travel.
  • You as a trainer were animated, fun and informative. Some training sessions can become boring as they go on and are long but not with this course.
  • It was full, to the point, fun and it added on more learning for me. I got a lot from the training which you don’t normally get from refresher training.
  • Thanks for running the training it was absolutely brilliant and personally I found it much more engaging and memorable than previous First Aid courses that I have attended. You made the training interesting and the video link was a new way of delivering the session but worked amazingly well. I liked that you used the training dummy and could demonstrate some aspects on screen. I also liked that we were put into the lobbies to work together on some aspects. Honestly would not change anything. I think the length of training was perfect and liked that you asked us as a group for any specifics we wanted to cover.

March 2020: Feedback from safeguarding session run for 12 staff who work with young people

  • I have learned what has been updated and it was a very engaging and inclusive session
  • I understand how each organisation might have different processes and what to do if I am worried about a child or staff member
  • It was really useful to know what you could say if a child or young person makes a disclosure to you
  • I feel I am more aware to look out for what young people might say to me
  • It was good to do session with my staff and check we all have the same understanding of what to do when we are concerned

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.

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.

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!

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
  • Liked having different teachers with different approaches (x2)
  • Interesting – very good and well explained
  • Liked everything (x3)
  • Engaging course
  • I liked doing the COR on dummies (x4) and liked the AED demo!

In response to …what could we change to make the course even better for you…

  • Nothing (x12)
  • Nothing except more time
  • Longer course with more time (x3)
  • Time to go through more conditions in detail
  • Time to try out the AED and abdominal thrust aid (x4)
  • Course in one day (x2)
  • Chance to work in smaller groups
  • Reduce written tasks (x2)
  • More different methods to learn DRSABC and reasons for unconsciousness (x2)

Lots of really useful feedback there – well done and THANK YOU to all at Bradshaw Scout Group Halifax! A great bunch of people!

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)

  • 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

  • Take 5 mins for a walk or destress at lunchtime

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!!
