What Clients Are Saying
We first approached Foundation Training four years ago to discuss delivering person centered training to our stay who are both experienced and inexperienced in the Health and Social Care sector. Sally met with us and discussed the needs of our service delivery, what we wanted to achieve from the training and to familiarize herself with our policies and procedures. From the initial meeting and to the present day, we are extremely happy with all of the training delivered. Sally's approach to teaching cannot be faulted. Her interactive sessions have proved to be both informative and memorable. Our staff have gained a vast amount of knowledge and understanding and this has been demonstrated in their working practices. Sally is consistent and maintained an excellent standard of the highest quality. Staff feedback has said " This is the best training we have ever had. We learnt so much information and valuable skills that we can put in practice"
We are very pleased and fortunate to have a trainer who is extremely dedicated and passionate, and we will continue to use Foundation Training.
Sally has delivered training for my teams on a variety of subjects over the past 4 years. She is totally committed and passionate about her work and the quality of her training is outstanding. Sally is extremely helpful, professional and a pleasure to deal with. Not just a great professional but a great person. I highly recommend Sally's training, she is a star!
Ana Beja - Deputy Manager at United Response
Having worked with Sally over the past 2 years I can confidently say that she is one of the best trainers I have come across. Her training sessions are ones where value is added to each person attending, her enthusiasm throughout all sessions is to be admired.
Her content is relevant and always up to date. Sally strives to deliver the best and most energetic and practical training. Furthermore, she works closely with us to plan ahead and develop our staff further on a long term basis.
I certainly recommend Sally to any organisation who want to invest in their staff and see actual results.
