THE BEST Training
I want to say a huge thank you to Scott for taking the time to come to Guernsey and give us what I feel is THE BEST training I have ever been on. Scott delivered such impactful and inspiring training in a brutally honest and insightful way which touched so many people in the room. His messages about what it’s truly like to be a child in the care system and especially about how the decisions made about his and his brother’s lives have impacted them, are so valuable in taking a look at current practice in social work and I will definitely remember what he had said in my practice. This training is so important to roll out to all carers and social workers (and everyone else working with children) on our island as this is a fantastic in-depth look at a child’s perspective from a very articulate and self-aware adult. Thank you again Scott – come back soon! Read more
I first met Scott nearly four years ago when I attended his course, A Child's World, at the agency I foster for. This course was unlike anything I had seen before in over sixteen years of looking after children. His presentation was brutally honest, heart-breaking, but awe inspiring that this amazing young man had survived and developed into the man who stood before us. I have since attended every course he has, both face to face and online, and have never been disappointed or failed to be affected and encouraged by his experiences. He challenges me to continue when times are tough, to strive for the best for our young people when others would give up and to acknowledge what is important to their lives. His online courses are delivered in an understated style with poignant music playing in the background as he shares his, and his brother's, experiences of life in care. The way he presents his face to face courses can be brutal in it's honestly, when he challenges you...Read more
Fantastic training for our Foster Carers and Staff, highly recommend to anyone working with Young People in care.
Highly Professional, Respectful and Reliable
I have known Scott King for approximately three and a half years. He is one of our specialist trainers for our carers and as I manage carer training, we have been in regular contact throughout that time. I also attend all training that our carers are given to ensure the quality of training is maintained. Scott has the experience of growing up within the care system and therefore has a real understanding of the child’s view of the care system. He is an engaging, warm and empathic individual who is excellent at understanding trauma and trauma based behaviours. He has an extremely positive relationship with our carers and is adept at ‘reading between the lines’ to ensure that the worries and concerns of carers are addressed within the training forum. Scott has always been highly professional, respectful and reliable. He builds trust and confidence in the carers quickly. His delivery of training is honest and, at times, raw – feedback from the carers following his training...Read more
We have worked with Scott for the past 6 years or more. Scott has always been well received by both our fostering families and staff. He has an incredible story to share, which is both personal and very poignant. Scott has the ability to capture the audience and deliver his training in an unforgettable way. Scott has worked with us to design bespoke training for our fostering families, in line with our vision and policies. He is always up for the challenge and happy to tweak training to suit our organisational needs. Would thoroughly recommend Section 31 Training.
