“Absolutely. I would definitely recommend the course to anyone doing OTL’s regardless of their experience.
I thoroughly enjoyed the training last week. It was both challenging and stretching. Before the start of the course I considered myself to be a good observer, but from doing the course I have identified several actions and behaviours that I need to change to ensure observers benefit from the experience.”

“I really enjoyed the course and I was surprised at how the week flew by!
The depth of subject content, varied activities, lots of exercises and the many interesting discussion points meant there was never a dull moment!
As a reasonably experienced observer having previously attended several 1-day observation courses, I can say how beneficial it felt to spend a full week on this sensitive and complex area of work.
Sean is extremely experienced and knowledgeable on this subject, and I now feel I have a better grasp of what to look for, how to identify good and better learning, how to improve the quality of my performance notes and judgement statements, and the techniques to improve my feedback skills.
I would definitely recommend this course to experienced staff who want an in-depth refresher and new staff who want to develop a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to observe effectively and with credibility.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the week and have gained so much from it, everyone was really friendly and ensured that it was inclusive to everyone. I was totally engaged for all the sessions, which was due to the content, delivery and pace of each day.”
