Ian Johnson has delivered 21 training courses to our Foster Carers since January 2016.
Ian has proved to be very professional as well as very knowledgeable. He is a charismatic and skilled trainer, able to handle sensitive, and potentially controversial issues in a fluid and confident manner.Ian’s experience as a Supervising Social Worker, and his own experiences growing up, underpin his training, and have resonance with carers.
The evaluation forms we have received from each course are consistently rated at the highest level.
A comment from a course last week on Working in Partnership was: ‘facilitated and guided skilfully, with lots of interesting input’.
Empathic Caring Strategies attracted the comment: ‘Ian gave lots of practical advice/strategies and some follow up reading’.
Ian has delivered generic courses for us, as well as some written at our request. He is always very personable, as well as very prompt in his responses. I consider his input to be extremely valuable and greatly appreciated by foster carers.
