Phil is always the most engaging trainer we have visit our site, he engages, educates and informs staff in a manner that makes safeguarding extremely relevant to whatever their particular roles might be. The feedback we receive following Phil’s courses are always positive with staff invariably asking if he can deliver more as soon as possible.
- Registered Manager, Children's Residential Services Provider
Phil has delivered a range of training at our college from new staff training through to upskilling our Senior Tutors with DSL level training. His sessions are always insightful, of the moment and are delivered in a very engaging manner.
- DSL, FE College
Exceptional. Clear, helpful, to the point yet detailed. Delivered in the most effective way.
- Chair of Governors and Head
Phil is an excellent, very well organised trainer who provides an insight into the ways in which health professionals can make a difference to the lives of adults and children. Thought provoking training.
- NHS Trust, Head of Safeguarding
Phil’s training is fantastic! He uses real examples and his formidable knowledge and expertise to engage and bring what is a complex and emotive topic to life. I would not have any other provider train my staff.
- Asst. Head, DSL / SENDCO & Designated Teacher, High School
Phil had previously conducted a most thorough and exacting review of safeguarding one of our academies and was the natural choice to review practice and provision in all our schools in the Trust. He is hugely experienced, knowledgeable and personable and is pragmatic and down to earth in his approach. As the leader of the Trust I have absolute confidence in his reports and in his judgement and would recommend him to any other school.
- Principal and Secondary MAT Leader
Phil’s delivery is outstanding, professional and inspiring – even the most hard to please staff are impressed with the training and comment on how useful and informative it has been – even, that they have enjoyed it. I have also used Phils’ safeguarding auditing service which was also excellent. The audit we had in November 2018, certainly laid the foundations for us to receive a comment in our very recent Ofsted inspection that ‘within safeguarding, no stone is left unturned’. I cannot recommend Phil highly enough.
- Primary Head Teacher
Phil has delivered our DSL training for some time now and our Safeguarding Leads have had supervision with him for over five years. Training is always engaging and right up to date with the latest developments; it has certainly stood us in good stead where inspection is concerned! Staff say that supervision is really helpful.
- Primary Head Teacher
Phil has provided mandatory Safeguarding sessions for our LA supply teachers and support staff CPD programme for a number of years. His breadth of knowledge, experience and character enables him to deliver engaging training sessions on what is regarded as a serious and sensitive topic. Feedback from our delegates is, and always has been, extremely positive. For this reason, Phil would always be my first choice safeguarding training provider.
