‘The whole course has been utterly brilliant. It has been very refreshing to take part in a course that is stimulating, empowering and something that can be applied successfully within our school.”
“I've just finished the online training and can honestly say that I am excited and enthused! This model for a more empathic understanding of friendships gives me real hope that we can help our girls make better choices and feel less overwhelmed in their friendship groups. The message is clear and concise and will be fairly straightforward to implement within our school setting. Truly a model to empower young women.”
"The reference material is detailed and informative and good in that it includes videos and real-life footage of the approach in action. It is also good to hear the actual responses of the young girls themselves and how they view the GoB approach."
"I found Girls on Board very inspiring and the training gave me a lot to think about and reflect upon. The training is very easy to follow and the videos bring it to life. I enjoyed being able to do this at my own pace. Andrew was great; he answered my questions and helped me to think through the best way to put this into practice in our school to adapt to a Year 4 class."
"Having just completed the online version of the training, I can honestly say I have enjoyed the whole process, it has reinforced much of what I had learned from extensive other reading, and it has offered a way which really 'chimed' with me to put that into practice through a totally clear and workable system which is nevertheless not overly time-consuming and will open up many good conversations."
"I have really enjoyed learning about Girls on Board. Everything I have watched and read has made sense and I realise where I have been going wrong in the past. I have wasted many hours with girls, trying to sort out their problems but the truth is, you really can't. What you need to do, is learn about Girls on Board and approach the problems that way. Hold a mirror up to the girls and facilitate them sorting it out themselves."
"I particularly appreciated that the whole course is so easily adaptable to suit girls of any age, and so I don't feel as though I have a lot to do to make it applicable to Year 6."
