I was thoroughly impressed by the quality of the workshops which TIE delivered in our school. The trainers were knowledgeable, approachable and well-trained. It was particularly impressive as they were delivering workshops across the school from Primary 6 through to Senior VI. The tone, content and pace of the workshops was expertly pitched to ensure learners were engaged and involved throughout the whole workshop. Feedback from the pupils was that they had enjoyed the workshop and had learned a great deal. The trainers were open to questions and helped the pupils gain a real understanding of the issues surrounding equality, diversity, prejudice and discrimination. This allowed our Guidance staff to further explore the issues that were raised in the workshops in later weeks during PSE. I was very impressed with the way the trainer pitched the tone of the workshops to the younger years, not an easy task, but the staff all praised her professionalism and content of the workshops.
We found dealing with TIE from the moment I contacted them to the delivery of the workshops to be efficient, helpful and useful. As a pastoral depute, I have dealt with numerous agencies and I was very impressed with how easy they made it to book, organise and arrange the workshops – thank you! We also found that the TIE workshops helped our school progress on our journey to being awarded Silver – Rights Aware Status for the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award as this was excellent evidence of how as a community we were actively promoting inclusion and diversity across the school.
I have been thoroughly impressed with every aspect of our engagement with TIE and am very grateful that we were able to participate. The feedback from the workshops was also immensely useful to quantify understanding. Thank you very much, we will absolutely be engaging TIE again.
