Feedback from May 2020 to December 2023
“I have found the Paws b training to be the best I have undertaken in 20 years of teaching…I am leaving feeling confident I can deliver the course next term.”
“This is one of the most worthwhile courses I have ever taken.“
“It was truly a wonderful experience. I learnt lots. I feel ready to teach children and I also deepened my own practice.”
This course exceeded my expectations. This course is SO extensive and SO child-centric in ways I would never have thought of. It seems that all the planning is done for you and you just have to deliver it but with the full confidence that the team have thought of everything, including Trauma which is so reassuring.
Thank you for a fabulous four days of training , I can’t wait to try it out back at school.
The course was great – very informative and useful. I can see the difference it could make in school.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this training, the trainers were fantastic, and delivered the course brilliantly over zoom. Can’t wait to sign up for my next course!
It’s a great course as it is. You’ll be hard pushed to better it. Can’t wait to teach it to me class. Thank you for all your help and support.
A huge thank you! I can’t wait to start Paws b in my classroom!
This was actually the best training I have had! Considering that it was 4 very full days of training online through zoom, it all worked so well. The pace, relevance, quality of materials/resources, lessons, practices, rooms, discussion, answers, encouragement, knowledge and professionalism of both presenters made this top quality training. Thank you.
I wish this had been around when I was at school
Thank you a wonderful experience.

Fantastic trainers – encouraging, knowledgeable and incredibly supportive. Thank you!
It was absolutely brilliant. I wasn’t sure if being online would hinder the experience but actually being home made it very relaxed and we got to link with people all over the world. So grateful.
I really enjoyed the course. I felt that everything was very well organised, the trainers were very knowledgeable and helpful. Lessons were well paced, informative and the course is so child-friendly. Looking forward to bringing this into my school. Thank you! So important that children have this understanding and the tools to help as well.
Everything was well paced, movement breaks were built in, there was great variety, group discussion, opportunities to ask questions and I am really looking forward to delivering the course.
A well structured course excellently delivered.
I genuinely am very impressed with the standard and quality of the trainers, presentation, time management, content and resources.
The sense of community was wonderful, the teaching was top class and I am very grateful for it all. Oh and the resources during and going forward are amazing! Thank you!
Extremely well taught and presented. The class formats really take all the relevant themes and pare them down so that kids can understand. Resources for teachers are excellent.
Brilliantly organised course with great foundations to teach mindfulness in my school setting.
I was extremely impressed by the enthusiasm, skill and passion of the trainers.
I found the course excellent and inspirational.
The whole four days was extremely well structured and organised and the support and information available to us on completion is amazing. You have done an amazing job adjusting this course to online so we can still train and deliver it to children who I’m sure will need it now more than ever. Definitely a life changing course. Many thanks.

Really enjoyable, feel empowered to teach now

“In terms of cost and ease it works well. I did miss the interpersonal connection of doing a course in person. However it doesn’t really detract from the learning and understanding of the lessons, theory and pedagogy. I still greatly enjoyed the course!”
