I have previously done this training and it was not as focused on the practical day to day responsibilities. Your training was really good as it really made me confident of my responsibilities as RPS for my area. The practical sessions/workshop is an excellent way to identify how to deal with scenarios- Great training day. I would highly recommend other team members from my centre to attend your training programme." "It was a really informative and well organised day" "All presentations were excellent and easy to follow slides were informative and it was good to have a hard copy so you could makes notes" "It was such a friendly PPE workshop and the delegates were all friendly and I enjoyed their company." "These small group activities and discussions were very good. It gave an opportunity to ask questions and be active within group discussion - especially after lunch!" "A brilliant idea, could relate problems back to own department and discuss what could be done in groups, so you gained ideas from other people really found this useful." "All of the sessions were informative and engaging. The group discussions were a good way to share ideas between the speakers and the audience." "Excellent course with good interaction. Very good, real life scenarios and examples. Keep up the good work!" FAQs What are transport/parking options for the event?
