"I feel much better equipped to talk with schools, to work with them as partners with common aims." Museum Staff.

"Fantastic to have such a productive day with teachers and librarians. We have moved a long way towards working more closely together in the future." Public Library Staff.

Jerry is a practitioner, trainer and consultant for libraries, schools, museums, archives and galleries. He is well respected and always delivers value for money and consistent training related to the requested subject. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jerry, and am happy to be contacted if prospective clients would like more information.
Lynne Hackett, Discover Learning Manager, Calderdale MBC.

I have worked with Jerry on several occasions to run training for library staff. Jerry is enthusiastic, a great teacher and always works closely with clients to ensure he delivers what is wanted. I have never known any staff not enjoy one of his training sessions and come away inspired, enthused and with an armful of ideas they can't wait to try out.
Jo Moulton, Service Development Manager, Lewisham Library and Information Service.

As with all of Jerry's training, sessions can be tailored to specific local needs. Jerry is also happy to create new courses. Training is adaptable to Library, School, Archive, Theatre, Arts, Museum, Heritage, Sports and Leisure settings. The focus can be work with children, teenagers or adults or the full range of service provision.
