What our clients say:
Interface as always have been professional and flexible in their approach and delivery, working with us to get the most out of the programme. Without exception the practitioners completing the Level 4 certificate have fed back that the trainers are excellent, the sessions varied and interesting, that they felt supported throughout the programme and that the course has improved their practice. They loved the projects, which are still being developed further for use by Shropshire Early Help Practitioners to use with families.
I have massively built my confidence, had an opportunity to self reflect and develop my leadership skills. I feel like a different person. It has been a game changer.
Working with Interface has been a genuine pleasure. They have been central to the roll-out of trauma-informed practice and restorative approaches training within our organisation and have impressed us with their range of expertise, high quality delivery (online and face to face) and bespoke solutions. Having also used Interface for delivery of courses, facilitation of reflective practice for staff and creation of online learning content, we have found them to be responsive, flexible and much more than just a training provider! It’s been fantastic to work with an organisation which aligns with our own values-based approach.
The terrain they were exploring was fairly complex in terms of the number of stakeholders and channels of communication which they grasped quickly and managed efficiently.
I was very pleased with the work completed by Interface as they were thorough and took a careful and considered approach. The consultants were professional and responsive and highly skilled at unpicking the challenges associated with the remit.
It was possible to access the wider team of consultants within Interface which added considerable value to their offer as on occasion additional skills and advice were required.
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.
There’s training & and then there is Interface training – Fabulous , just Fabulous!!!
Interface carried out an evaluation of our Early Help services. We were particularly impressed with the range of skills and experience across the team and the way they liaised with family members and professionals. Also, the regular communication and management of the process.
The team were very flexible and the report was well written in plain English.
We were very pleased with the evaluation and the reports will inform our service development and practice.
I have worked with Wendy and Interface since her days at DFES and later as the Founder of Interface. She has built considerable expertise in the key developments in Family Support over the last 20 years and with her partners has been able to offer us knowledge, experience, flexibility to meet our changing requirements as we have developed our services. We have valued her help developing our practice, management , systems and meeting our partnership workforce development needs most recently on Family Hubs, Management and Leadership and Trauma programmes.
Wendy and colleagues are responsive, excellent communicators with us, partners and staff. We have been really pleased with the outcomes. I would you use them again and recommend to others.
