review by Mike

5 out of 5 stars

"This was a great course, well delivered at a good pace. The group was varied from some young people to some of us older ones but we were all catered for and well looked after. Darryll and Jenna who were leading the course are very knowledgeable and experienced and this was really good in pushing us to deliver our best work. I would rally recommend this course to anyone involved in delivering coaching. I am a scout leader and this has been really valuable to help me improve the taster and progressive sessions that will be delivered."
