Ocean Housings Tenant Involvement & Social Inclusion Team had been on the lookout for a training provider to deliver an enjoyable team-building session for our dedicated residents.  We were extremely pleased with our decision and the level of service provided by Devon & Cornwall Training Services.

From the outset, Lisa was friendly and very accommodating.  She provided us with a comprehensive training proposal tailored to our needs and delivered the session well. This coupled with faultless communication made for a very enjoyable course. Thank you, Lisa.
