I found the training session both interactive and very informative. The trainers were very relaxed in their approach but also really passionate which came across throughout the duration of the session. Not only did it meet and exceed my expectation of developing my understanding, but it has also given me the confidence to have conversations with young people on the topic of gender identity and LGBT.

...it was a great afternoon, it helped that the staff were so open and felt comfortable to talk to us about their experiences. Their light hearted approach made the topic seem a little less daunting. For me it was really great to be able to ask questions at the end that related specifically when we have encountered young people struggling with their gender identity and how we can best support them in those situations. We’re already working on making some changes to our data collection based on the training to make sure that students in this position would feel more comfortable making us aware of it.

… it was fantastic Andy & Kay were brilliant, all 18 staff who attended thoroughly enjoyed it and now the others want another session booking!!! We are going to make LGBT our little project and already have a volunteer to be LGBT Champion.

I really enjoyed the LGBT Awareness course.  Sarah, Jack and Kay from Hart Gables were very friendly and delivered the training session in a relaxed and fun manner.  The session was very informative and I liked that it was interactive and encouraged staff participation.  I would highly recommend this to other organisations!

I thoroughly enjoyed the LGBT awareness session with Hart Gables, The staff were very welcoming and the session was interactive and informative.  I definitely came away with more knowledge and understanding of issues faced by the LGBT community.  I’m looking forward to building further links with the team and partnership working in the future.

I found the LGBT training to be engaging, informative and light hearted, I found the three staff members from Hart Gables to be very open and honest and easy to have discussions around LGBT awareness. Thank You this was a fantastic knowledgeable meeting!

The training was first class.  The content and delivery were both amazing.  Very knowledgeable and excellent people skills.  I went in feeling that I was already aware and informed and have previously had training from Hart Gables in 2014 but it surpassed my expectations.  It was upbeat and relevant.  I came out feeling inspired and positive.  I would highly recommend Hart Gables to all people.  I feel the training should be mandatory for every person.

An informative course delivered by a passionate, involved, team. I felt immediately at ease with what could easily be a daunting subject for a person of my age and background. Time flew by and I certainly left the course feeling better informed and positive that I could put my learning into use.
