"Just wanted to say a big thank you to you both for the 2 days I spent training with you. A lot to take in but I have my booklet which I will continue to use as a reference. Although I had a basic knowledge of H&S before this course I now feel after the course it will allow me to assist the BM in all areas of the school.”
