Secondary teacher - Pupil Referral Unit

I’ve gained a fantastic overview of EC.  Thanks, Licette for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm for this supportive intervention.  This will help me to work more effectively with pupils and support my own parenting skills and well-being. 

Secondary teacher - Pupil Referral Unit

This has been the best training I have had in 18 yrs. of working in education.  Amazing techniques & strategies I will now use forever.  Licette is a fabulous trainer – a realist who understands the restraints of our roles. (

Primary Special Educational Needs Teacher

The presentation wasn’t strained or forced. Like a conversation, it was more thought provoking which is important for parents who are used to being told off about parenting styles and for those who do listen can find it difficult to navigate through often conflicting advice. 


Fantastic day! Lots of examples and stories which helped ground the approach.  Totally makes sense!

Teacher, Behaviour Intervention Team
