We develop skilled and vibrant professionals

Our approach

We create helpful training programmes your workers will actually look forward to. We can help practitioners, managers and leaders in children’s and adult services, multi-agency partners and any professionals working with children, adults and their families.

Since 2007, we’ve worked alongside local authorities across the UK and trained thousands of social care practitioners to make a positive impact on the lives of children, young people and their families. We can help your staff to excel by equipping them with the tools and knowledge that result in measurable improvements in practice.

Completely flexible and designed around your requirements, facilitated by entertaining and knowledgeable trainers and informed by the latest evidence, our training programmes will become a treasured and helpful resource. We’ll support you as you achieve lasting improvements at all levels of your organisation.

Why us

A principled and responsive approach to making ourselves helpful, with exciting and engaging trainers who are experienced and qualified social workers or experts-by-experience.

Just like the social practitioners we serve, we go to work every day to make a positive difference in the lives of children. We work with a small number of local authorities where we feel we can make a real difference. This means you can rely on us as a trusted partner, to support your staff in the exact areas where they need it most. We’ll stand by you to deliver tangible and measurable improvements in practice that lead to better outcomes for children, young people and their families.

Our people

Our trainers never teach ‘at’ people. They’re completely tuned into what’s happening in the room.

They’ll give your staff a space to exchange knowledge – absorbing the latest evidence-informed research on what works in practice and working together to apply this to their work.

All our trainers are registered social workers or experts-by-experience, and each is a recognised expert in their own area of speciality. This makes them brilliant role models who’ll inspire your staff to strive for excellence in their practice.

Proud to work in partnership with...
