Interface are trusted by…

The interface team are very approachable and responsive to our ever changing needs. They are incredibly supportive and really go the extra mile to support us.

Troubled families lead, Cambridgeshire (East)

Our approach to early help was inadequate as was our Troubled Families programme, overall we were not fit for families and as a result we were failing. Interface worked alongside us as we built our new Early Help offer, enabling external trouble shooting, facilitation of the identification of solutions and growing practitioners that had all the skills but were lacking in confidence and application. Interface worked alongside us. They were excellent and professional throughout. The outcomes were excellent with a recent Ofsted inspection praising within our Early Help teams.

Elizabeth Broadhurst, Troubled Families Coordinator

We approached Interface to discuss the delivery of their Supervision training in-house for our organisation. Their proposed solution allowed for us to tailor the training to exactly meet our needs. The trainers delivery was engaging and inclusive. She used lots of relevant and practical examples imparting her extensive knowledge. Delegates left the training with specific individual plans which should have a positive impact on their practice of supervision.

Wendy Such (Parenting Coordinator, Bracknell Forest)

Thank you! The trainer was extremely knowledgeable, the course was really useful to me and I learnt a great deal that will be of use.

Ashmead Primary School Teacher

Interface were very flexible in meeting our organisation’s needs. The trainer’s style was particularly effective in holding, supporting and gently challenging staff during a period of significant change and subsequent uncertainty. Her training style is clear, warm, appropriately challenging and encourages reflection. She has fed back regularly to managers on any wider issues that have been raised during the training and that we should be considering which is particularly helpful. Feedback from participants has been consistently positive about the quality of the delivery of the training.

Kirsten Carr, Early Help Transformation and Impact Manager (London Borough of Haringey)

Excellent training from knowledgeable trainers. The training day has really made me think about my practice. Put all new learning into practice and be much more aware of tools provided to assist families and also be much more aware of how I practice. Extremely useful, applicable and relevant.

Programmes Manager Troubled Families (Waltham Forest)

It was very comprehensive. The course was adapted as it progressed. The trainer great at thinking on her feet and amending course content.

I would encourage all of my colleagues to attend this training. Excellent tutor with great knowledge base. Very informative with an ability to captivate an audience - excellent.

Very beneficial and interesting. Clear training. Essential. I will note risk appropriately to self and family and constantly update risk assessment to enable me to maintain awareness of change with family circumstances.

Learner on Risk Assessments course

Fantastic case studies, excellent!!! About the trainers – I loved the use of their own examples encountered through their own work.

Learner on Intensive Family Support and the Role of the Key Worker course

Really beneficial doing relevant activities – makes it real and good to talk about. Perfectly executed through the day it was Interesting and eye opening - made me think.

Learner on Whole family Assessments course (Oxfordshire)

The feedback was unequivocally positive, with particular reference to the inclusive learning style of the trainers and the flexibility of the course. People liked the practical exercises and have followed up with team discussions.

Service Manager Family Interventions/ Troubled Families Coordinator

A fantastic course, really enjoyed it, well supported. I am much more aware of the partnership and whole family approach, which I intend to take back to my place of work.

FIP Project Manager (Portsmouth)

The new staff team were most enthusiastic about the course content, the skills of the facilitators and the opportunities for bonding as a team. The programme was well structured and as requested the learning was delivered in a variety of engaging styles. The end of week presentations clearly evidenced a lot of hard work and high energy. The staff who joined us this week have clearly benefited from the week and have resources to draw upon and confident in their own expertise and knowledge. They are skills sharing and proving a good level of support and encouragement to one another as they embark on work with some of the most troubled families in the three boroughs.

Family Coaching Service Manager Tri Borough

I have been very pleased by the work carried out by Interface. They were able to work flexibly and adapted well to our requirements. The training was designed and delivered in a constantly changing environment and Interface were able to work well with this and didn't get frustrated! The quality of the training delivered was consistently evaluated as excellent.

Together for Families Lead Officer (Cambridge)

Clare was very knowledgeable and excellent deliverer of the subject and I feel Clare was excellent in regards to ensuring I understood the material.

Learner on the Think Family course (London)

I currently manage a Family Support Service that very much models a lot of the objectives of this I found the training very informative and will certainly be able to use the tools and enhance staff training and services.
