This testimonial is from someone who worked in a very demanding SEN private school. One evening he was walking home when he was violently attacked with one assailant threatening to "take his eye out".

Recent Feedback from a Trainer about their Experience
This is a fascinating yet sad account of what one very knowledgeable trainer is experiencing in the industry. Her e-mail to us yet again highlights the 'abuse' many people receive at the hands of trainers in the industry. Sadly, there are still those organisations who teach people this way. You will find this article very interesting, and if you are considering becoming a trainer choose your training provider carefully.
