Schools Engagement

Kerry has been an amazing coach to our pupils so far and we have seen a huge improvement from week 1 and its only week 4! She has been so easy to work with and the children look forward to their judo sessions with her every week. The children have said they love the games that they get to play and they love learning new judo skills.

Kerry has worked with our school a number of years now. She has delivered outstanding Judo sessions to both our primary and secondary departments in that time and our pupils are always excited to take part. While leading our more challenging classes Kerry’s behaviour management ensures that all of the pupils that take part are fully engaged and perform any skills safely.
I couldn’t recommend Kerry enough.

Kerry is an amazing, experienced coach who delivers high quality, fun sessions and our after school club has been a huge success because of this. She actively encourages children of all abilities to succeed and the sessions embed a strong sense of self, respect and control. Highly recommended.

Best safeguarding course to date
The workshop gave vital information about all the elements that need to be in place and considered in order to protect children and young people in our sport. The course provided all the procedures that should be followed for good practice with regards to safeguarding as well as what steps should be taken with regards to various children protection scenarios and concerns that could occur. It really raised my awareness of what to look for and the tell tale signs of abuse. The trainer was really knowledgeable and the course material was very useful.

TTL/SPC – October 2019
I found the TTL course extremely useful, it was more Judo focused than the previous safeguarding course and certainly what I needed as a new CWO.
I was immediately at ease thank you Kerry, the course was a perfect balance of relevant information and support for the role that I’m about to undertake.
Thank you.

Having recently attended a TTL course delivered by Kerry, both myself and Maria our Club Welfare officer found the content very useful, and informative. Kerry’s enthusiastic delivery style, encourages similar enthusiasm from the delegates, and the subsequent interaction between all parties makes the course an enjoyable one, on what can of course be a sensitive subject.

I just like to say how much I enjoyed the courses I attended on Saturday. I very much enjoyed the way in which you presented the information which was a mixture of activities and discussion, which was thought provoking and interesting. I am now much better prepared to fulfil my role as welfare officer.
Kind regards and many thanks
Take care Bev x
