What do our clients say about us?

  • Brian T. | March 2020

    My name is Brian Tarrant. I am 73 years old and have been suffering from MND for the past 10 years. I decided to take Corine Koppenol as the company to train my six carers, it turned out to be a great decision.

    Read More

    I, and each of my carers all say Corine is head and shoulders above the trainers I have had before. She makes each and every session interesting, no boring sessions here, ever. She is very caring and knowledgeable of every carer’s needs, the ones that are confident and the ones are not so, Corine also has the ability to treat each one as an individual.

    She is very punctual, very professional in every way, also in a very caring way.

    In my humble option Corine Koppenol would be a very worthy winner of the Outstanding Supplier of the Year award.

    One word sums Corine up, "Outstanding".

  • Francis E. | Lead Nurse for Paediatric Palliative Care & Bereavement Support Team Bristol Royal Hospital for Children| March 2020

    It gives me great pleasure to complete this reference for Train with Care Ltd. This is a highly professional service and managed by a highly skilled and qualified nurse. Who is both clinically skilled and an empathic professional, namely Corine Koppenol.

    Read More

    She has a wealth of experience in looking after Children and people with sever complex needs and her skills have been recognised and rewarded many times. She is totally dedicated to her vison of care, which is dependent on well training carers, which is individual base on each client and their needs. As part of this vison is the supporting of their families around their individual needs and situations. She does this by supporting the families in their own homes with training, advice, care and above all compassion. She deliver’s highly complex training for carers who are working in the community, tasked with very challenging and complicated situations, often on their own. The clinical training, she delivers gives them confidence, and when needed the competencies of the staff are assessed.

    Her input goes beyond the care of duty and she will endeavour to make sure all clients are well looked after and treated fairly by the system, to the extent that she will contact the CCG’s or Local Authorities when things are not in place or not sufficiently to make sure the client will be safe at all times. She has good professional relationships with other professionals, CCG’s and Hospitals across the South West to make sure her practice is up to date and relates to the current best practice guidelines.

    Here at Bristol Children’s Hospital we have relied upon her knowledge of Personal Health Budgets for direction and advice for families from across the South West: she has worked closely with Bristol Hospital to work with a young person with a Personal Health Budget allowing its carers to come into Bristol Hospital to look after the young person alongside the hospital staff.

    Very recently I asked her to visit a family with a young three year old daughter with a severe disabling condition to advise them of the benefits and workings of a personal health budgets and how they could safely have carers working with the parents in their home. She spent several hours to seek the best information and visited them to personally support them on her days off and offered them ongoing support to make sure they don’t feel left alone with difficult matters of decision making and navigating the system; which can be overwhelming for any non-professional, let alone a family with full time care responsibilities.

    Her passion and drive are unimpeachable; she is punctual, and she is known for her reliability and confidentiality. Her inspiration and knowledge of community caring and complex needs is amazing, and she will bring across an energy and enthusiasm for her work with carers and clients which is immense; the carers and clients feedback has been amazing: from feeling confident and not anxious anymore to her calm, encouraging and knowledgeable way of teaching.

    I would recommend Train with Care Ltd, Corine Koppenol to be recognised as an Outstanding Service for training and advice for carers and clients in the community.

  • Liz H. | Wiltshire | Feb 2020

    All part of the 3-day training was excellent. The presentations and the demonstrations were very good and the trainer was excellent. I would recommend this type of training to anyone!

  • Kate W. | Feb 2020

    I felt able to ask any questions, however small, if I didn’t understand something. The material was easy to follow & relevant topics were all covered.

  • Kerry M. | Head of Education, Rowcroft Hospice Torquay | January 2020

    Working to support people who are dying is one of the greatest privileges we can offer. Even when we do our best sometimes it takes its toll, leaving us with anxieties or questions about the death and our support to those important to the dying.

    Corine is able through her wide knowledge and experience to sit alongside our staff and our learners to listen and to hear about what their struggles are and also to notice their successes and is committed to valuing and developing staff ass people first. This takes incredible and exceptional skill and understanding.

    Her background as a registered nurse, working with disabled and dying children and also in managing and developing new services in the NHS and her work as a CQC inspector make her stand apart from other training suppliers. She draws upon each of these areas offering change management and personal development alongside clinical skills expertise and best practice examples.

    On a personal note she demonstrates a high level of professionalism with a wicked sense of fun and humour. Always reliable, honest and with a high sense of integrity, I have often observed how warmly people outside our services react to her when at professional meetings and tell me of the impact she has made to others personal and professional development.

    I think this company and Corine represent what outstanding suppliers look like and that is why I am nominating. Thank you for the opportunity.

  • Maggie M | carer at a PHB package, Somerset, September 2018

    I feel the training I received has been thorough and enhanced. I have gained a lot of confidence through the training and would highly recommend this training to other carers when they need it. If I was offered E-learning or classroom training I would certainly use classroom because it is face to face and I learn much better that way. I will be looking forward to the refresher training in a years’ time. Many thanks Corine!

  • Anna E. | Chailey Heritage Foundation, East Sussex, October 2018

    Perfectly paced training. Very easy to understand and very good resources. We were able to try practical skills with dummies. Everything taught was explained clearly and I was not felt that I could not ask questions. I feel so much more confident now that I could manage and assist with equipment and emergency situations. What a lovely, calm approachable lady Corine is. Thank you so much. (Chailey Heritage Foundation, East Sussex, October 2018)

Thanks again Corine 

  • Charlie T. | Chailey Heritage Foundation, East Sussex, March 2018

    After being on this training course I now feel a lot more confident with what I am doing as it was explained very well. Using a variety of teaching methods which suited everyone in the training. I had also never seen a single trainer provider using so much of their own equipment to enable practicals and using the actual equipment so that the training was a realistic as possible.

    That helped with the confidence as well. The trainer was also very approachable and made sure that you understood everything and really made the 3 training days enjoyable and engaging which I’ve not had with training in the past. I am looking forward to any future training days that you hold. Thank you Corine!!!
