Pulse CSI INSET Day – “This was one of the best INSET training days the school has taken part in for a long time. We had an absolutely fabulous experience. Using the equipment, the unique fingerprint keyrings and of course dressing up in the white protective suits, made the workshop! As a school, we wanted something which would launch this year’s whole school development area of Science and which would be interactive, engaging and fun and that’s just what we got with the Pulse Crime Scene Investigation Day.
Our group of 26, a mixture of teachers and support staff, were hooked from the very start. As a Head it was wonderful to see everyone working together as a team, on an equal footing, learning new skills, discussing and sharing ideas, reasoning, explaining theories, collecting and reviewing evidence and excited about their work. Jacqui was fantastic as a facilitator. Her subject knowledge and delivery were excellent. She made the whole exercise come alive with genuine resources and materials and creative ideas. The Forensic Science Workshop was a wonderful staff training day. I would recommend it to anyone. We thoroughly enjoyed it!”

Please accept our most sincere thanks for the excellent training afternoon you delivered for us. We had an agenda of ‘energising and enthusing, learning’ and you not only achieved this for us but you also provided a fantastic team-building platform – very well thought out and delivered. The problem solving and skills-based approaches you led us through really made us think, analyse and interpret information; all things we ask children to do every day. We enjoyed being in the learning seat and everyone is energised and enthused ready for the new half term!
