'A brilliantly organised and well structured course.  No fluff or flannel - just really good 'choice cuts' of practical information.'
Kate, FHT member, East Sussex

I thoroughly enjoyed delivering the IMPACT programme and it was nice to see all the participants enjoying the benefits

I took four classes of 20 students and was so impressed with how quickly the IMPACT skills were taken on board and valued. Lots of very positive feedback and by the last session in the afternoon - word had obviously got round - and I was delighted to find an impressive number of staff unofficially sitting in too.
