What our trainees have to say ...

“It’s fabulously well documented, researched and supported with additional materials. All of that is really well done. I mean there is no denying the course has been created by people who really know their stuff.”
“I think that the people who have produced it really do seem to care and are really involved with what they are wanting to share”
“It gives you confidence, it gives you the confidence to be able to tackle these things and these subjects.”
“I came away with one abiding impression from the course: that this issue is not an issue of technology, it’s not an issue of finding the right parental controls to put on your child’s phone. It’s a much broader issue and it’s to do with communication and setting the appropriate relationship between carer and child.”
“The philosophy underlying the course is much more child-centric than possibly the traditional approach.”
“It’s not simply about learning about the different apps and so on that they might be looking at or that you might install for safety purposes. It is much more about how we incorporate the online world into t he fostering world.”
“This is better than previous courses because it is holistic and it actually states things that aren’t obvious to most, which is that it isn’t about just digital skills. It’s about so many of the factors but I think the unique thing about your website is that you actually do have all of the resource packs and other parts that are added on to it rather than just being enrolled on a course.”
“What I liked about it is it gave so many practical resources of things you can actually do. There are many kinds of worksheets, resources and prompts. It gives a lot of information and additional things so that you can actually implement it.”
