Customer : Managing Self-Harm Participant - Secondary School teacher

I enjoyed this training. Managing the self-injury, the self-harm cycle and self-harm resources (comfort kit) were all very good parts of the course. I recommend this training course to anybody who is dealing with self-harming behaviour.

Customer : Managing Self-Harm Participant - Residential Childcare Service

This course should be given to al residential childcare centres. Jen taught us about the cycle of self-harm and gave us information on how to deal with self-harming situations.

Customer : Managing Self-Harm Participant - Children's Foster Care Service

The small group sizes allowed the trainer to focus on our own cases and concerns, which was very helpful. This course should be delivered to everybody working with children in care.

'Very knowledgable instructor. Very informative on policies and procedures in relation to Supervision. The "What Supervision is and is not" module helps define boundaries of Supervision.'

Customer : Mark McGuire, Service Director, Pathways Ireland

"Social Care Training Ireland provided us with supervision training for our management team recently. Vivian and Bernie delivered a high standard of learning material to us, flexing their approach to suit the range of participants in the room and using an approach that was both formal and interactive.

Their approach encouraged group participation which enhanced the learning experience and the course facilitators’ broad depth of knowledge and experience was apparent for all to see.

We will definitely use SCTI again in the future and would highly recommend Vivian and his team to anyone in the social care sector."

The participants in this training have been very much impressed with the content, quality and knowledge of the training provided. The trainers have had the ability to tailor each of the courses to suit our organisation’s needs.
The majority of the participants, in their evaluation forms, have rated the training provided by Social Care Training Ireland a 5 Star which is the highest grade possible.

Customer : Derek Binchy, Neptune Kayak Ltd and Spike Island Ltd.

Many thanks for providing us with Child Protection training. Both of our companies (Neptune Kayak Ltd and Spike Island Adventure Ltd) gained valuable and useful information which we implement on a daily basis.
We were very impressed with the flexibility of the company in their efforts to accommodate our organisation.
The course itself was very comprehensive: It covered Children First in depth and Dolores set an excellent standard of expectation for all of our staff working with young people going forward.

Customer : CPL Healthcare, Social Care Worker

“It was clear to see the course was delivered by care staff members who has been out there working on the floor with young people for many years. The day was very good and I would highly recommend the course to others. The trainers own skills were very evident in the fact that they have encouraged many of us to sign up for further courses”

I feel more confdent about how I would cope with stressful situations and I am refreshed by the perspectives explored by the participants and trainers. This was beyond conventional training and it was also fun.”
