Leadership

Interface are trusted by…

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

Learner on Supervision Course

Thank you for the useful and informative training session. The guidance that your trainer gave and the discussions mean that the school and the governors will be better prepared and more confident when they are inspected.

Clerk to the Stapleford Community Primary School Governing Body

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.

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.

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.
