This module was informative & interesting, made me think about how I conduct myself in my place of work & homelife and how to reflect on my own dealings with situations to make improvements. It’s great that Jeanette has been in the sector & has personal dealings with challenging behaviors, I feel her knowledge is valuable and an asset to the course. Definitely support the idea of self care 100%.
I just wanted to say I really enjoyed the 5 week course. I learned a lot and it will definitely help me in the future. Thank you Jeanette for a wonderful course.
A massive, massive thank you for the course over the last 5 weeks. It has been hugely beneficial to me in my profession, and something I really looked forward to every Monday. I really couldn’t praise the material and the discussions any higher! I’ll absolutely be recommending it to colleagues in the future.
Jeanette is a brilliant tutor, and so knowledgeable. As a new SNA, with little experience, I really enjoyed this course and found all the content to be extremely useful to my new role.
This module and in fact the whole course was so informative and interactive. I liked the way you incorporated your own experiences and those of others, along with the research to make the course enjoyable and understandable. I definitely would use your company again to help further improve my role.
Laura was an excellent tutor. Delivered concise very informative content and was very encouraging to our participation. Definitely enjoyed learning from home and is so much easier than having to travel long distance, which I would have to living in very rural Ireland. So well done to everyone & thank you.
The course had a high level of informative content throughout the 5 sessions. The final workshop gave very good tips and hints on behaviour management. While these were in the context of school or education settings I was really struck as to how parents have to deal with these situations themselves and have to be occupational therapists, speech therapists, behaviour managers etc etc. Fantastic people! Thanks so much for giving me a more understanding position to work from.
Thank you very much for a wonderful course. I found it very informative and participatory. Jeanette is very knowledgeable and I also found the class being so interactive I learned from the other participants. I found it very interesting and enjoyable and hope to put the new learning into practice. Thank you very much Jeanette. Much appreciated.
Thanks so much for a brilliant course ….I probably talked to much ….but I definitely will highly recommend it to anyone I can. Lots of information delivered in a relaxed and wonderful way
Thanks a million Selena. As always it’s been an absolute pleasure to be part of your class. I always get so much out of them on an educational aspects but combined with fun and laughter. Thanks again.
It was the quickest five weeks for me.The workshops were excellent and also an eye opener. For me it’s a great insight to how you all work with children and also it tells me the problems we have and I can see more problems coming down the line with this covid etc. I want to thank Selena for presenting the course and I want to wish you all the best in your work and life. Remember to take an hour for yourself everyday.
Just wanted to add that I am a Social Care worker in the area of Residential Care for children and teenagers who have Autism and other complex needs. Working as a key-worker with one boy in particular who is non-verbal and displays challenging behavior and I find this course will allow me to learn new strategies in managing the behaviours’ that challenge.
Just a word of thanks, I really enjoyed the course and as a newly qualified SNA and had just started subbing I really found this course full of information and new information and it was great to hear other people’s experience.
I truly enjoyed the course. The content and the delivery of the course was excellent. I got a great experience of learning through zoom that I enjoyed and meeting new people.
Week 2 of this course, I can honestly say there isn’t anything to improve on. Found Selena’s presentation excellent. Touched on so many topics that I found relevant and ideas to help me understand better. With this new knowledge I feel I will be able to introduce in our setting. Loved the different games suggestions that can help support the children. The great thing is that these games can be introduced to all our children, creating an inclusive environment. Thank you again. Looking forward to next week’s class.
Unfortunately Wifi is like the weather! Really enjoying this course, would love to discuss more on topics but I release that time is restricted. Laura is very professional and knowledgable. It’s important to be educated by someone who has practical hands on skills that can give real meaning to strategies, thank you Laura and enjoy Easter.
Laura has a good attitude and makes the course very enjoyable.
Really enjoyed this session. Learning that behaviour of any kind has a message behind it and trying to find out what that message is will help get to the root of it. So important to remember that our moods affect other people and I’m a firm believer that while it is so important to talk out your problems, it is equally important to park your problems at the door. Also taking time out if needed is something that in our role as carers we can overlook, so thank you for reminding us to do this. Thank you Selena for sharing your story with us.
Excellent, really enjoyed the course.
Thank you so much Selena, the course was very informative and enjoyable.
Fantastic course. I am so glad I did this. I learned plenty. Got loads of strategies, information & supports regarding challenging behaviour and complex needs. Selena is an excellent tutor and very easy to engage with. I would highly recommend this course. Thank you.
Fabulous course i enjoyed every module and will take on board what strategies I learned throughout this course.thanks again for your hard work in offering these wonderful courses .I will most definitely recommend it to fellow SNAs.
Selena is a fantastic tutor she explains the content well, doesnt overcomplicate the information and gets through so much information in every workshop. As a tutor she makes the info interesting and encourages class participation and sharing of knowledge and experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and would definitely recommend them to any other SNA, parent or professional looking to learn more about behavior interventions and complex needs. Jeanette was so amazing when I booked quite late to start the workshops as I was limited to Monday and she moved people to allow me to join, for that I am so grateful. Thank you Jeanette I really appreciate that and Selena you were such a fab tutor, your passion shines through! thank you both for such informative workshops!
Really enjoyed the course learned very practical methods and resources are great.
Absolutely brilliant course only new to being an sna found it so beneficial and opened my eyes to a lot of different aspects made me look at things in a whole different light, would highly recommend to everyone. A big thank you.
Brilliant course so informative.
Very informative as I have no experience in this area.I found I learnt alot and learnt from others in the group.I would recommend these workshops.
This was such a brilliant course. I found the content so informative with such practical tips from Selena and great input from the girls on the course. I have spoken highly to work colleagues about this course, recommending them to look at it also. Doing various courses over the years I always felt that if I came away with one new item of information that I didn’t know before I did it, then it was worth doing and I have certainly come away from this one with an armful that will support me in caring for the children that I work with. Thank you for helping me move more confidently forward in my role.
Have to say I was nervous about doing online course but Laura put me at ease instantly and I looked forward to the weekly classes because of her . Looking forward to doing other courses with you.
Thoroughly enjoyed this course and found it very interesting. Selena our tutor was amazing and very informative and gave us great advice in certain aspects of our working environment and how to deal with certain situations, would recommend this course to anyone.
I think Selena is fantastic, I couldn’t have enrolled in this course at a better time. The more understanding we have as teachers, SNAs, family members the better. The more awareness schools have and principles have of behaviours on the spectrum the better for the kids to adapt to life. I am grateful I found you guys.
This was very interesting and interactive and lovely to engage socially with people with similar interests and overall very enjoyable. Laura has been a fantastic tutor very passionate about children and services.
Very informative and interesting lots of interaction in the group facilitated by the group speaker, given in a relaxed way so everyone felt included and could give their opinions. Feel that it does not need to be changed and should be kept the same. Thanking you greatly enjoyed the workshop and learnt a lot.
Really informative course. Lots of practical information included and great tips when dealing with challenging behaviour which is what everyone wants. Selena was fantastic. Thank you.
Laura was brilliant thank you really enjoyed the course.
Was class course highly recommend and Selena the tutor was brilliant.
Selena, I am delighted that I signed up for this course with you, you made me feel comfortable and encouraged all of us to take part. Each night we had a laugh and learned something new. Thank you xx
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and know the knowledge gained will benefit me immensely as I start out on my SNA journey. Our tutor Laura was lovely and very easy to listen to, she made the course very enjoyable and always had answers to our questions and advice if needed.
Thank you Jeanette and Selene, I thoroughly got so much out of both workshops. I would be interested if you have any other workshops in the future. I wish you every success going forward. Many students at schools and resource centres will benefit greatly from this learning as I did.
Thank you Selena for a course that was so well delivered. I found it so interesting and learned alot. Your expertise really shone through in your passion for this subject. You were a brilliant tutor. I am sure students will feel the same as I do going forward.I look forward to do more course in the future. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Longer, and full day workshops would be much appreciated if that was possible.
Loved both courses I’ve done with Training Solutions Kilkenny and will most certainly be keeping an eye out for further training. The payment installment is very good and makes these courses doable. Have had both Laura & Jeanette and highly recommend them.
I really enjoyed your course and you are very good at what you do. You clearly have a passion for it and it comes across in your lectures which make it very worthwhile and enjoyable for the people in the room. Keep up the great work.
I’m really enjoying the course. It’s very accessible and practical in nature which is fantastic as I qualified in Feb2021 but have classroom experience but the experiences of Selena and the other participants is brilliant.
I found the course excellent. It really fine tuned my values and I am using so many aspects of it every day. It had the perfect mix of personal input and professional content.
Thanks for the course. I loved it and it will be very helpful to the kids we have coming to us.
Loved the course from start to finish, Laura is a brilliant tutor and very informative. Will definitely recommend to others. Thank you so much!
This has been the best CPD workshop that I have done. The contact was excellent and it has really helped me to develop my skills as a SNA who only qualified last year. It has helped me in the classroom with the children I was working with and I believe that it will definitely help me secure full time employment. I would and have heartily recommend this course to any person looking to improve their behaviour management skills. Selena was a very experienced, informative and fun facilitator and I was sorry to come to the end of this really enjoyable course. thank you.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found every session beneficial and interesting. For a world of on line delivery of courses it was clear, accessible and very quick follow on response from tutor. I am looking forward to enrolling in another that Laura explained.
Just completed the first day . Information was very informative and I could relate. If standard is as high as today I can’t see how course could be improved. I was very impressed with Laura. I felt relaxed and found I was comfortable to participate which I don’t usually do on zoom. Out of my comfort zone. Thank you I really enjoyed today.
I enjoyed the first night. Before it started I was a little nervous about having to get involved and talk but it was presented so naturally and before I knew it I felt comfortable answering questions. I am really impressed enjoyed the first ngt and got some great tips to carry into my work place. Which is why attended I wanted to be able to help and make sure I could help all children enjoy playschool to the best of my ability. I can see nowhere that can be improved.
Laura spoke very well & was extremely informative. I enjoyed the workshop. Many thanks.
Thank you so much for such an interesting and well prepared and researched course. I really enjoyed meeting you and the other ladies and look forward to training with you again in the future.
Jeanette spoke very clearly and at a good pace. She gave everyone an opportunity to answer questions or give an opinion. Very courteous and caring. I liked the variety of group work, watching clips, sharing stories and the personable approach.
I found your course so good and and accessible. I was afraid I would be totally out of my depth having retrained as an SNA during lockdown but no class experience other than my music teaching but the tutor and yourself were just so fantastic I felt like I had something to contribute on the course.
I want to thank you both for the wonderful course. I found it very beneficial and informative. I referred to the course in my interview for a fixed term post. I felt the course should be part of the SNA level 5. I learned loads. I think that is what got me the interview.
The course content is very well detailed and seem to have covered all the main topics in relation to challenging behaviour..The interaction between tutor and students is very important as it gives everyone a voice and keeps the students engaged and focused on the topic been discussed.
I’m really enjoying this course, I’ve covered so much theory that I’ve never heard of and will help me so much with my job, the two and half hours flys it’s that interesting.
Lovely course…nice to be able to spread the payments over the 5 weeks…. thank you.
I really enjoyed this course. Very informative and slides easy to follow and great to refer back to. Laura was an excellent tutor. Enjoyed the interaction with others in the group. I’m sad to be finished but I have learned valuable information . Thank you
Very interesting. Great learning from tutor and other participants. Well done to everyone.
Course was very informative and doing it online was ideal esp with kids and work commitments. The 2 tutors were very knowledgeable and supportive and I hope to attend a course with ye in the near future.
Laura’s delivery of the course was excellent throughout. We were encouraged to interact without feeling under pressure. The course covered great practical examples about how to deal with behavioural challenges and encourages interaction among participants which offers great opportunity for building knowledge. I have actually learned new skills which I feel I can successfully implement in School. Highly recommend.
It was a pleasure completing both courses with you. Fantastic work on your programs and work. Look forward to coming back to study with you again in the future
It was great to meet you and connect with others regarding PDA,I found the course very informative and I am so glad you are providing the course, raising awareness of PDA in Ireland. I enjoyed taking part and learned from others who interacted and shared their experiences.
I really enjoyed reading your ebook. I have discovered that throughout my life I have had ACEs. This book has literally given me the tools to understand how I coped / not coped and understand that none of my life experiences up to 18 yrs was my fault. I have and continue to heal and approve of myself.
The training was engaging , informative and Friendly. I took away practical skills which are really relevant to my practice as a nurse , it gave me so many strategies and approaches to use. It was great to be part of a welcoming and diverse group with different experiences and roles , and I gained so much knowledge. Jeanette is an absolutely wonderful , Knowledgeable trainer Who created a warm and relaxed Learning environment . Would recommend this training to anybody From Any background. Thank you!
Thank you so much. I honestly really enjoyed the course and I am already seeing the benefits of it. It really was so enjoyable. I will definitely be looking out for upcoming courses and recommending you to everyone.
Can I say thank you for an amazing course, I took so much from it, from the hosts to the people on the course, it was definitely one of my favourite courses ever. I look forward to doing more courses with you.
Excellent course,vast amounts of relevant information and the varied formats in its delivery made it extra interesting eg.videos, group work, discussions and breakout rooms. I would highly recommend Jeanette and TSK Academy.
I thoroughly enjoyed your course and got a lot out of it. Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity. I will keep an eye out for more courses in the future.
What a resounding success you attained with our class! It comes as no surprise as you are a very talented tutor. Your content and attention to us was superb and you made new learning a realistic achievement, particularly for me.I wish you continued success in your career and send you my sincere gratitude for everything.
Thank you so much this year for everything. I’ve learnt so many new things and have become more aware of myself as a parent thanks to all your help.The course was excellent and everyone on it were so kind and understanding. I kinda miss everyone already. It would be nice to do a course with them all again. We were a close bunch.
Brilliant, professional and informative.
Excellent course and appreciate for being let take part in the course. Thank you.
Excellent Course, very well explained, information clear and accurate. I would highly recommend this course to my fellow colleagues.
Well done Jeanette, I have all of the information printed and made into a booklet. Thoroughly enjoyed taking part.
Laura gave a great course and was very knowledgeable. She gave personal examples when discussing topics which was very useful.
Thank you again for another interesting, informative and easy to follow course. I really enjoyed this one. In the class I work in there are several boys with a diagnosis of dyslexia, after attending the course I now feel better equipped to support the boys. I now have a better understanding of dyslexia and that it is a spectrum of needs. I enjoyed the interaction with fellow students, the videos were very informative and helpful. I love doing courses with you, your experience is amazing and you are so easy to talk to, you always have excellent advice. I would highly recommend this course to my colleagues.
I love doing all your courses and the certificates are a great add to the CV as an SNA , I’ve gathered so much more information in depth while doing your online classes I really love them and getting to know other people and just simply gaining new knowledge from other people’s life experiences. It’s been truly great.
The class was amazing, really recommend it!
We engaged with Jeanette last school year in relation to the trauma training she offers. Following in depth consultation with the staff Jeanette was able to tailor a course for our needs. The whole staff completed the training and the benefit has been huge. In combination with supports from outside agencies our deeper understanding of trauma has helped our staff to respond in a more effective way and has ultimately improved the outcome for one of our students substantially. When dealing with extremely challenging behaviours a number of interventions from a number of different agencies are needed as well as a whole school trauma informed approach. Jeanette has helped our school enormously in that regard.
Love doing courses with Jeanette, she is very clear in her delivery and exceptionally knowledgable on topics, slides are always so informative and clear. Great to work with. Will most certainly be taking up more courses.
Thanks Jeanette, really enjoyed it and got a lot more than doing my level 7 last year, in these 5 weeks.
Thanks so much for everything over the past 5 weeks I really enjoyed it.
I just want to personally thank you for your time, effort & delivery of such a great course.
I found the course very interesting and useful. It is always nice when the person delivering the information is experienced and knowledgeable like Jeanette and can relate the material to real life scenarios.
Thank you, I really enjoyed taking part in this training. It was eye opening. The trainer was very helpful.
Thank you so much for everything. We were a lucky bunch to get you as our tutor! I really enjoyed the classes, you made everything so simple and enjoyable. For someone who had zero experience I really feel like I learned a lot. Thank you again for everything and hopefully our paths will cross again down the road if I can get my head into other studies!
Found it great, very informative and took away a lot to think about. I will be in touch in the future as I think other staff would benefit greatly too.
I really enjoyed the session this morning. It was very well thought out and very informative. Working in groups worked really well as we all learn from each other’s experiences. Look forward to attending more courses in the future.
