Mosaic have been working with us for over 2 years now delivering excellent training in Motivational Interviewing, Improving Interactive Skills, & Groupwork Skills. Feedback has consistently been very positive and Mosaic have impressed us both with their reliability and flexibilty.

Peter Allen, Assistant Drector (Training & Development), Richmond Fellowship


It was very interactive and tutor made the course enjoyable and light-hearted.

The exercises were effective in putting theory into practice.

Has given me more awareness, skills and motivation to tackle some of my more difficult clients.

I should like to say that I do not usually give such high ratings but this was a course that was added to by humour and stories that brought it alive.

An excellent course, good fun and hugely beneficial to my job role.

Richmond Fellowship, London


It was very helpful in completing my knowledge and understanding.

Lots of information included that was both useful and relevant – very good.

Fantastic training, it taught me loads and has opened my eyes to legal highs. Will now be researching this topic more. Thank you.

Cranstoun Drug Services, Surbiton

Very interesting & thorough. Excellent facilitation. Learned loads!!

Excellent training as always from MOSAIC.

The facilitator was very knowledgeable and made the day interesting and of benefit to my work.

Really mind-blowing what I have learned. Never heard of ketones other that mephedrone. Now I have a lot more knowledge on other legal highs.

Has given me a good overview on a subject I had little knowledge of. Will be much more aware in future and plan to look further into this.

Course exceeded my expectations and I left feeling that if / when service users presented with these issues I would be suitably equipped to work with them.

Richmond Fellowship, London


It has helped me realise how much I am using MI in my practice.

Excellent facilitator – kept interest  and ensured understanding throughout. Enjoyable day.

Believe it or not the thing I most enjoyed was the role-play which I usually hate.

Exercises kept course fun and learning from others in the group was extremely useful.

We have always found Mosaic, especially Stephen McCaig the Co-ordinator, to be very professional in delivering relevant training courses. He is very engaging and manages to include and motivate all participants in training. Feedback from the courses is always positive and we will continue to choose Mosaic to facilitate particular courses for our drug practitioners.

We’ve been using Mosaic to run in house training for us for some years. They know the sector well so their training is always relevant and they are happy to discuss and amend the content so that the training is appropriate. The feedback from staff is always very positive. They respond quickly to any emails or phone calls and their administration is very efficient. Overall I find them a really good organisation to work with and look forward to working with them in the future.

The learning and development support that MOSAIC have provided Broadway has been on two key levels:

1) on the culture of the organisation, the way we work with people and how our staff manage and reflect on their practice

2) and most importantly, on practically supporting us develop our approaches to client work through training and playing the role of “critical friend”

The practical difference MOSAIC can make to those working with homeless and vulnerable people is immense.

It has been practical and informative and easily accessible. Given me new ideas, techniques to work with clients.

I liked the quizzes. They got me thinking and challenged old ideas.

I have a clear view of what SFBT is and will use some of the techniques in my practice, especially scaling questions.

Previously attended a course and my knowledge was basic. I feel that I understand more now: what it is, and how and when to use it.

What I liked most was the relaxed atmosphere. Trainer also used lots of examples when explaining aspects of the model which enabled me to relate and understand better.

Lots of different group work sessions interspersed with input from trainer.

Course content relevant to my role and I feel able to apply skills that I have learned... was a great facilitator – Thank you. Fascinating intervention.

Good Course. Right at the centre of my work practice. Brings up interesting questions also about the equality / power dynamics in the client-worker relationship.

I have a better understanding of clients who use drugs and alcohol. Very useful, informative. Very well presented!

I will be more aware of the legal aspects and my responsibilities as a support worker. Wonderful course. Great tutor, informative and fun. What more can I say?

Drugs & Alcohol Awareness.
MCCH, Maidstone


I feel more confident about the 'tools' and have had a chance to explore the techniques in practice.

Re-affirmed what I have been doing right and given good ideas / models for improvement.

I think the tutor knows her stuff and made this an enjoyable learning experience.

Excellent presentation, pace and content.

The trainer kept us involved at all times. He was very understanding and made a sensitive / hard subject enjoyable to learn about. I have enjoyed today. Thank you.

Safeguarding Adults.
Stonham, Swindon


Excellent 2 days, learned a lot from watching the trainer, how he controlled the flow of the sessions and his personal style. Really good.

The trainer was competent, knowledgeable and worked at a good pace. The way he was integrated but “in charge” on both days made me have absolute faith in his knowledge, while we all stuck to boundaries and learned lots. I will try to apply that approach in my style – boundaried but humorous. Good balance.

Very knowledgeable, inspiring and enjoyable – I look forward to unleashing myself on trainees.

I will be delivering training for my organisation in the near future and will be utilising a lot of what I have learned over the 2 days.

I found the trainer created a space that made it feel safe to practice.

I feel more confident to try different techniques and better prepared for all situations regarding training.

Really helpful course covering everything appertaining to training... went out of his way to answer all questions.

Training The Trainer.
Wandsworth PCT, London

 

Met and exceeded expectation, excellent balance of theory / practice.

Where different models or ideas were given this was reinforced with real stories, making the whole course very interesting.

Very, very enjoyable course. Very knowleageable trainer, very good notes, plenty of time to ask questions, good mix of group work.

I will be more confident when liaising with other agencies when the client has multiple needs.

A great trainer, personable and friendly. His being actually in the profession, as a qualified nurse, really helps, as you know he is speaking from concrete knowledge, not fanciful opinion.

The course was helpful in increasing my understanding and developing useable skills for working with clients.
