  • I am a retired police officer and attended several  courses run by Joe Sullivan in my police career. Without doubt the learning from these greatly assisted my role as a Senior Investigating Officer, it gave me greater understanding of the complexity of offenders and allowed me to develop effective strategies. I have just undertaken the Interviewing course to refresh my knowledge as I have moved into a new career. It is without doubt that I can say the latest course has renewed my enthusiasm and knowledge of this area, these are transferable skills which I will be using in the future. If anyone is considering attending the latest Mentor courses having completed them previously, I can without hesitation say, you will learn new things and reinvigorate learning from previous courses.”

    CT Health worker
  • “This was a superb course for eye opening and challenging organisations to be more robust and less naïve in their risk assessments and recruitment/ retention policies. It was useful to me as it reinforced how critical our recommendations and guidance to clubs is and really why it matters not to accept poor practice…”
