Testimonials MHFA

80% of clients rate the trainer Dorothy as ‘Outstanding’.

I recently attended A Mental Health First Aid course at the Riverside Campus with Dorothy Claire Le Grove lecturing.  I have to say, for someone like me who has been out of a learning environment for some time I found the course first class and not in part due to the lecturers delivery style, clear experience, knowledge, patience and support. So positive was the experience, I shall be looking out for any other courses delivered by Dorothy as I am confident I would have a similar positive experience and the same positive outcomes I had in achieving this qualification.  I cant thank or praise this lady enough and I wish her well in all her future endeavours and hope to be in a classroom with Dorothy at the helm soon.

Eddie Scanlon, Group Manager, Glasgow City Council

As part of the management team for Glasgow City Council’s parking enforcement I wanted to develop a better understanding of how mental health impacted on my staff.  I signed up for a course in Leading Mental Health First Aid.   Dorothy Le Grove was my tutor for this course.  Dorothy brings a wealth of her own life skills to the classroom and provides a wonderful teaching experience which is both informative and enjoyable.  She has an intuitive understanding of her students and brings out the best in everyone. The skills she brought out in me will now be shared with my staff.
