“I have commissioned Gretchen Precey to undertake a number of pieces of work in recent years including Service Reviews and Overview Reports for Serious Case Reviews. She sets high professional standards for her work and always delivers as required including snagging of any reports which has been necessary. Gretchen’s attitude, performance and integrity in undertaking these tasks have always been of excellent quality.”

“I wanted to send you a quick e-mail regarding feedback I have gained from those who have attended the child protection courses run by you.  

Basically Gretchen, all those who have attended any of your courses over the past year have ALL stated what a great trainer you are, how knowledgeable you are, how you deliver the information in such a way that it is easily understood and makes sense, and how it is overwhelmingly received as some of the most positive learning experiences the attendees have had!

If that wasn’t enough, we have just had our Investors in People re-recognition assessment which specifically highlighted your training as one that all those interviewed rated very highly.”

“This looks like a really well structured and informative course and I’m sure our foster carers will learn a great deal from it. Thanks a lot we are lucky to have you working for us.”

Training Manager

“As Course Leader for the MA Child Protection Studies at the University of Brighton I have been delighted to have Gretchen Precey’s contribution to the programme.  The students are all working in child protection at a senior level within health, social services and education. Their evaluations of her teaching are unfailingly excellent; in particular they applaud her extensive knowledge base, her capacity to transmit material with sympathy and clarity and to leave them with a memory of an immensely useful and usable teaching experience.”

Many thanks for your report – it is one of the best reports of its kind I have seen. Very clear, well written and presented and evidence based. Thank you very much. We will be on the phone again soon!
