“Thank you very much for this training, it was very interesting and useful. The person providing the training (sorry I can't remember his name) was really good and funny, made the day go through really easily and he was really good at explaining everything. The room itself was a bit poor, it was quite cold there are there was not even coffee provided, apart from the space everything was good.”
“The session included everything I needed for my work and I feel much more confident if I need to respond in an emergency. I didn't feel that the trainer was as knowledgeable as I have had in previous training but he was very personable and down to earth.”
“Professional training delivered to a great standard, having completed the Level 4 award in IQA. The support during class based learning and after while completing the units required was excellent, clear constructive advice & detailed feedback. Thanks to our Tutor Nick Chadwick & the trainaid team. looking forward to my next course.”
“Overall the course provided exactly what was required and has given me additional skills that i can now take into the classroom to be a more effective trainer.
However, communication is key and here i feel there were shortfalls.
The joining instructions provided were virtually none existent and only turned up the day before, this left someone who was not aware of the location at a disadvantage as the postcode provided was of little use.
It was also apparent that Ian (our trainer) had not been made aware of the total number of candidates as for the first day I did not have any table space to work from which presented its own difficulties. However, this was sorted for day two.
Further to this i feel the preparation for the micro-teach does not lend itself well to a block style three day course. Anyone with after hours responsibilities (e.g. single parent) may have limited time available to ensure adequate planning of the micro teach is achieved for day three. I would suggest candidates are made aware of the additional time needed before the course is started.
Another alternative would be to spread the course over three weeks and present it in a day release format.
Having said this, Ian made the course what it was and I would not hesitate to recommend this course to others.
“I thought this training was very good and well supported by resources and powerpoint There was a good mix of delivery styles. However I don't really understand what the delivery is not spread out a little. I found it extremely hard to two evenings until late preparing for the microteach that was on the 3rd day. I feel that this session would be better a week or so later to give delegates a bit more time in between to prepare.”
“The instructor was knowledgeable and gave out of the box advice and training. Things that we would not be able
To find in a booklet as he had years of experience. I would have like the room to be bigger to accommodate the need for cpr and recovery practical. I would have liked a bit more hands on or bandaging, using the defibrillator.
I do feel confident and have refreshed my knowledge on the key concepts needed in my tuition business.”
