Evaulation and feedback  from workshop attendees


Trainer was excellent 10/10 highly recommend this workshop.


Although we have had a good CQC inspection, this workshop gave me food for thought and how to be an outstanding organisation 


We were rarted as inadequate, wish done this workshop before excellent, we will use ECLM again. Trainer fantatsic 


Commissioned an audit of our service after attending this workshop, really useful, staff and residents now understand what we need to do to continue to improve.



The external benchmark was a really useful critical friend, non-threatening staff at all levels of the organisation found it really helpful


Demystified CQC as a new manager was great -  no longer scared


Commissioned course for 20 of our deputy managers across our organisation all rated the workshop 10/10 (some 15/10) in all elements. We now have an action plan facilitated by the trainer, who will come and ‘inspect us’ to see if we have achieved.  We have now commissioned ECLM Ltd to deliver further training for our deputies; we were so impressed by the professionalism and quality of the training.
