The session you presented was by far the most talked about and engaging. I sat in on the first session and found it very interesting and so informative. It really does give you an insight into the way people have to manage their lives and what we take for granted.
There was no negative feedback on any of the sessions. The icebreaker and the activities the group carried out were so thought provoking it has really given my staff an awareness that I think could only be gained from hearing from a first person perspective. My team were able to identify with the young people’s behaviour they observe. The feedback clearly shows a better understanding and an appreciation of what they are dealing with on a daily bases.
Here are some of the quotes form my team;
“I have a better understanding of how hard it can be for pupils”
“I have learnt what some of these children are coping with”
“Be mindful of the children’s autism”
“Appreciate the struggles and problems they have”
Your delivery made the session very relaxing and people felt they could ask question about their observations and understanding. I would strongly recommend this session to anyone who deals with preparing and serving meals or who support young people during meal times. I would be keen to look at communication if we were able to run another Development Day as I know this is an area which may help my team in the future.
