What our clients say:
How refreshing it is to see a company put together a package that clearly demonstrates that you have worked in this field and produced a tool that can actually evidence what work we do.
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.
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.
My trainer was absolutely brilliant. She is so credible and knowledgeable and was able to share and help us understand each and every module. She was also extremely supportive, encouraging and made the whole course interesting. Nothing was too much for her, she offered an open door to contact her and gave reassurance when we doubted ourselves! She provided clear and great feedback, which was important to me throughout the course. I joined the course as an anxious, nervous person, who was convinced the whole process was going to be long, difficult and stressful. I couldn't have been more wrong. She put everyone at ease and guided us through the whole process. I wished I had met her years ago! I hope that she goes on to inspire many more people to work with children and families. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. I have and will, continue to recommend the qualification to my colleagues.
Your team are great, they are really flexible as well as passionate about what they are doing. They made me feel really enthusiastic about what we do here.
There’s training & and then there is Interface training – Fabulous , just Fabulous!!!
Interface have delivered several training events for us and have been been a really positive, upbeat and flexible organisation to work with. The training events have been excellent; engaged my teams, pitched and paced at the right level and have been valued by the staff who attended and contributed robustly to our programme of continuing professional development across our multi-disciplinary team.
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.
We set a very challenging timetable for the piece of work we commissioned. Interface developed an approach which both met our time frames, but also provided an incredibly robust and challenging assessment. The combination of the 2 associates with different backgrounds was a benefit to the project and outcomes as it meant we received challenge from a number of angles.
