Jacaranda training participants have said:

“Social Pedagogy really is life changing
All the things we do, its rearranging,
Challenging beliefs and things we’ve always done
And realising the barriers really are none”

      “We’ve changed our support plans and reviews to reflect Social Pedagogy practice”

      “Best training I’ve ever done, although I was nervous at the beginning. Glad to be part of it.”

      “The balance between the theory and the practical was spot on”.

      “Brilliant, one of the most useful and enjoyable training sessions ever.”
