What last year's trainees had to say about their induction

  • Excellent start to the year.  Very engaging considering the amount of information to get through in three days.
  • It has been a great three days with opportunities to get to know the other trainees.  Interactive sessions gave an opportunity to think for yourself rather than just being talked at.
  • Really impressed with all the speakers.  Every presentation was delivered with expertise and each presenter had brilliant knowledge.
  • Really insightful, useful and accessible information pitched perfectly.  Particularly enjoyed the more interactive sessions/workshops.  All presenters instilled confidence and assurance and were thoroughly engaging.  Thank you for alleviating fear!
