I was very pleased to see that it was local professionals sharing their stories and points of view in this recertification training. This definitely helped to keep me more engaged. (June 2022)

Great refresher!! Continue to do the great advocacy work that you do. Much appreciated. (BSOC Aug 2022)

The SCARS Beyond Stewards training was informative, relevant, and engaging. We are very appreciative of the time and energy that Debi & Helen invest in this important and necessary training and the impactful work they do in our community to make it a safer and healthier place for everyone, but most importantly our Island’s youth. There are several key takeaways that we learnt as a result of this meaningful training which we will action to enhance our safeguarding policies and our procedures. Thank you! (July 2022)

This course was very informative and as a teacher, the topics discussed are areas I need to be aware of and will help me (and any child) in case I come across any suspected abuse. (BSOC Aug 2022)

The case studies/simulations and discussion were extremely helpful in identifying options and minimizing opportunity. Especially when I wasn't sure what to do. I would suggest a short 2 minute break timer in the middle. Pacing was excellent, just needed a pause. (July 2022)

A great reminder to always reference policy to help us govern ourselves and help others. Great references to social media and it was great to see locally produced content. (BSOC Aug 2022)

Recertification included sufficient information and reminds you of the factors to look out for and remain vigilant in protecting children. (July 2022)

Thank you for offering this recertification online with different date options. This made it easier to find a time that would work for my teaching schedule. (Feb 2023)

Presentation was informative, well-paced, and interactive. (July 2022)

I am going to be honest I thought this might be just a repeat of the first training we did. I was mistaken. It was so well presented and I was captivated. Thank you to Debbie and Helen for making it a very worthwhile course. (Jan 2023)

This was a great refresher! It allowed my mind to start ‘ticking’ and thinking about things within my classroom space and the importance of my students and their bodies. (July 2022)

The training awakens my awareness on all the ways how to provide support for children. Also, it reminded me of how to implement policies about safeguarding children. It also reminded me of the red flags to look out for in various situations. (Jan 2023)

I was unable to pick the date I completed training as it wasn't available. I completed it yesterday morning (Saturday, July 16, 2022). I I also really enjoyed the fact that the recertification now has videos that are relevant to Bermuda. I believe it makes it more personable and held my attention more. Thank you again for an informative and critical learning experience. (July 2022)

The videos were effective in providing different perspectives from various community advocates. (July 2023)

This has brought light to lots of examples to watch for. (July 2022)
