Difficult Conversations Course – Feedback

Some of our parents and teachers took part in the online course on how to handle ‘Difficult Conversations’ successfully and confidently, please click here for information on this course

These are the course comments:

Parent: ‘I found the course very useful and information brilliant. It helped me to see what steps I can take to give me more confidence for having a difficult conversation with the better outcomes after. I would recommend for anyone who would find it helpful in this area, as many conversations can be difficult at best of times’

Parent:  ‘Following my going through the online course, ‘Difficult Conversations ‘ using the formula – 5W = 1H, I would recommend it as a very practical and down to earth approach. It is a very well designed course. It can be applied to so many situations. Professionals can also use it to prepare for all types of meetings. If it is considered cost effective and the funds are made available it can be used to give parents the necessary training and skills to help in coping with the challenges they face in providing the best environment for their children and families. ‘

Teacher: ‘I have recently completed the ‘Having Difficult Conversations’ course and I believe it is very useful! The course emphasises the importance of preparation and analysis before and after having a difficult conversation. The main focus is on observing, doing, and reviewing, with the final two focusing on achieving resolutions. The strategies shown in the course, for example making targets that are measurable, realistic, and time-related, are widely used in other settings such as when teachers set targets at the Annual Review. Another approach mentioned in the course is the ‘Who, What, Why, When, Where’ which teachers use when analysing behaviours and putting strategies in place to support students. I would recommend this course for all staff!’
