  • Ann Marie provided a bespoke Child Protection training package for our company and had the flexibility and experience to tailor the materials and content to the rather specific needs of our members. I was very pleased with her ability to focus on the individual not an easy task in such a diverse group of school staff. In short - a good effort and good value.
