In Sandwell we delivered Leading on Inclusion – our flagship programme on the Values underpinning Inclusive practice, which gave participants a thorough appreciation of diversity issues. By looking at the cultural landscape of different communities, they developed a shared understanding of inclusive practice.

“The delivery of the course excellent tutors brilliant! Useful for multi agency networking and developing cross team responses towards Inclusive practice. Excellent day with inspirational trainers who challenged people's views in a positive and fun way. I have learnt a lot and feel more confident to challenge others attitudes. Both trainers delivered in an excellent manner and gave good opportunities to develop your own reflective practice. Very informative and enjoyable day. Very good atmosphere.”

Inclusive Practice - Keynote
"I wanted to thank you for your massive contribution to our conference. The day was a real success – due in no small part to your contribution. Many of the evaluations singled you out as ‘inspirational' and many others clearly enjoyed your workshops too. You were great! Perhaps the thing that may please you most is that one of the Children's Centre managers spoke to me and said that she felt they really had to address to employment issue. She would be raising it in the management meetings until she felt that they had addressed the issue that you raised. Thanks again Mole!”

Your style of delivery not only inspires me, but also challenges me in a very positive way. You obviously know your stuff! I like the way you encouraged me to talk openly. I'm sure that many more discussions will take place with my colleagues. I will walk through life using new eyes to look at the world - this training will impact on my personal development for years.”

Disability Equality Training - Workshop
“I have been surprised by how much this course has affected me. It has really made me question my attitude and to be truthful it has shocked me by the realisation that I have not fully appreciated the experience of people and to what extent they are disabled by society. Great exercises, especially the language session.”
