What our customers have said

Easy to follow instructions, I could refer back to previous information, clear and concise information re definitions and acts

The way it's broken up into sections so between each section you are able to have a little break
09/05/2016 EC
I like that the voice over pointed out the main facts at the beginning of every page and the pages weren't ridiculously filled with information it was nicely spread out and each section had just the right amount of information
05/05/2016 NH
The example which you can chose to click on and regional information was really helpful and the access into further information was set out well.
03/05/2016 LK
That the text was split onto various transparencies rather than having one big text you have to read. It gave me time to properly read and think it through before clicking 'Next'.
03/04/2016 AL
I liked the way that alternative answers/options were explained in the case studies.The language used was very clear and held my interest.Clever use of graphics and links in the presentation kept the training interesting - pages of text might have been harder to digest.
26/03/2016 DO
How detailed it was as it is an important subject that all professionals working with children should be aware of and trained in.
06/03/2016 CC
Reminders that content may be upsetting and having to uncover the pictures yourself meant that you could prepare yourself first without having the images forced on you
20/02/2016 KA
I liked the fact that some of the text was spoken. I also liked the interactive nature of the modules. Use of colour and graphics was very good. It was also helpful to have the progress bar at the foot of the page
03/02/2016 CW
This has been the best e-learning i have completed so far. I liked the interactive parts where you had to write thoughts and also the pictures to show types of bruising was helpful.
26/01/2016 SM
I liked that there was the safe place setting, so that when studying the modules, if someone found a particular topic too distressing, they could go to the safe place, maybe talk to someone, until they calmed down enough to complete the module.I thought the tests throughout the modules were really good, especially as they would explain the answer once you had completed it.
08/01/2016 AC
Being able to do a section at a time & not having to commit to complete the whole course at one time was an advantage.
