“I would definitely recommend this programme to a colleague. The sessions were evenly spaced out and the content was useful in developing my understanding as a middle leader. The sessions were hands on and practical and there was a good balance between the delivery of information and the practical activities. There was a sufficient amount of reading between sessions which didn’t distract from our main roles and Dave was approachable and understanding.”
