Training with Enhance Learning and Support
The training I received was brilliant!  I loved every minute and it was really interesting.  I would recommend to everyone.  I’ve learnt how to keep children with epilepsy safe and also how to use an epi-pen safely.

Rose – teaching assistant
Very professional and concise training given, I was made to feel at ease and confidence to complete enteral feeding training and felt competent afterwards.

Joanne – teaching assistant
The training I received from Chrissy was very thorough.  The information provided was very useful and the support I received during and after enteral feeding training was great!  I felt very confident with using the skills I obtained through this training and I was reassured all the way through and felt competent.  Highly recommended.

Chloe – teacher
Chrissy trained me in Enteral feeding, , I really found the practical pump training to be useful.  Chrissy was very supportive throughout my training and was a good mentor.

Becky – teaching assistant
I attended training on asthma, epilepsy and allergies.  This training session was useful; it helped me to understand the signs and symptoms of asthma, epilepsy and allergies.  This training was clearly presented and Chrissy had great knowledge in these areas.
