“Our experience to date with Grounds Training has been excellent. They have been totally flexible in adapting to our practical needs and have worked with us to achieve our outcomes. This is the largest cohort of volunteers who have received training and the first time we have delivered a bespoke online-to-onsite education programme. The content of the online course is spot on for the audience and well supported by the booklet.”
