What people have said about us…

“The course has been brilliant and very interesting. I have learnt loads and it I can’t think of anything ECDP could have done to make it better!!!” A trainee trainer describing ECDP’s Train the Trainers course in 2007

“Excellent training- I will feedback to my organisation and recommend it to be offered more. I would recommend people attending this training highly” An Essex County Council Employee in 2007

“This is an excellent course; it was well worth travelling 60 miles for!” A participant describing an Employers Training Session in 2007.

“Great course and good trainer - approachable, down to earth, empathetic and tells it like it is.” A participant on our Employer Training, 2006

“This course opened my eyes to issues I never knew existed, but are rectifiable by making small changes. It was informative and the information delivered was easily digestible.” A member of staff from ExDRA, 2006

“The course had a real 'heart', I enjoyed every minute and learnt quite a bit in the process!” A participant describing a Delegate Day in 2006

“Keep on doing what you do best. Brilliant & very informative.” An employee from Mencap, 2005.

“Much more useful than other training I have attended. Either it was because the trainer is an expert on disability issues, or because he has an impairment himself, so was delivering from that perspective. It is rare for me to attend training and come away feeling I have had an extremely useful day. Thank you.” Comment from a participant on a 2005 Delegate Day.

“From now on I will view difference positively & try to be natural when talking to customers remembering I can always say sorry. I must be less tense. Thankyou” A Southend Borough Council Employee in 2005
