“In my time I have attended numerous training events – many of them unstirring and routine – but your training was truly memorable. The trainer’s performance of evident authenticity combined personality and technical assurance, and reflected credit on themselves and the organisation.”

Chris Johnson

The Camden Society, London

“It's been so refreshing to have a training organisation that provides trainers that can empathise, and who understand the daily stresses and strains of life as a tenancy support workers and have vast experience within the social/welfare sector.

All the trainers have the ability to facilitate training sessions that engage all our staff in an open and safe environment and this has been hugely impressive. It’s been so rewarding to see new, inexperienced members of staff developing into critical practitioners who have the confidence to voice their opinions and challenge fellow group members.

We will definitely be using Norman Mark Training in the future as the quality of our services has improved immensely. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication and keep up the great work.”

“You have had a significant impact on the professional growth of Kisharon and seen it develop from what was a Day School in 1995 to what is now a life-span of services for people with learning disabilities. I have always been impressed how, in a subliminal way, you have pushed for our service users to have a voice and be an integral part of the decision making process.

Your intuitive probes and comments during discussion have made me reflect on my working practice which has ultimately had a positive effect on my day to day running of Kisharon.

The supervision training that you introduced to Kisharon seven years ago has left an indelible mark and affects in a most positive way the relationship between staff and their line managers. The staff’s performance has improved, and hence our provision to service users is of a higher standard.

Thank you most sincerely for the recent training you provided for us – Supervision Level 2. The staff that attended the course had only praise for the content and delivery and are buzzing with anticipation to use the new skills they have gained.”

David Goodman

Executive Director, Kisharon, London

““I found the delivery of information to be sensitive, responsible and grounded in anti-discriminatory practice. Learning outcomes were clearly stated at the beginning of the course and ground rules were negotiated and revisited throughout the training. The trainer was an expert in their subject, and related theory to practice in a clear, effective and at times amusing manner and was skilled at working with the group.

The training provided a personal and group journey of self reflection and discovery. I believe that people were positively challenged and have developed further skills and insight as a result of this. Individuals stated that they felt motivated after this training. This course was excellent value for money and a real investment in staff.”

“Eastway Care LTD has been using Norman Mark Training for the past 7 years. We get all our Mandatory training required to meet Social Care standards. The training is always up to date, reflecting changes made to legislation, government guidelines and strategies.

The certificates received reflect the content of the course but also how they meet the expected standards and qualification requirements which aid trainees meet their goals. Over the years I have built great working relationships with the lovely staff working at Norman Mark, they are always helpful and flexible. They understand the requirements of social care providers and have always been available for support and advice.

The trainers working with Norman Mark are people who have or do work in the sector, so have experience and knowledge that they can bring to learning process as well have great skills in delivering content in an interesting way. Meeting all the different learning styles. They are always open to discussing course content, and developing bespoke training courses that reflect an organisations policy, procedure and ethos.

The planning for training is a smooth process, good communication with all parties involved and the follow up and feedback process is great. Certificates are electronic, so easy to share and store.

We look forward to continuing to work with the staff and trainers at Norman Mark Training into the future.”
