"I found the course very informative and well presented. Mario kept it lively and interesting. I'm very pleased to finally have a certificate to say I know something about Health and Safety!

"In terms of what I have implemented since returning to school, we have improved our induction procedure to ensure that Health and Safety is dealt with as a separate subject and we now have one to ones with new starters purely on this subject which means it is not lost in the mix of other policies pertinent to life in a school.

"In addition, when we have our annual training day in September, Health and Safety will be part of the agenda."
