The first Suffolk Lenadoon TLP group completed their course in Autumn 2019. We hear more about their TLP story.

“I have better input into how I could help in my interface areas.  I’m new to this type of work and knowledge is power.”



What motivated you to sign up for the course?

I have better input into how I could help in my interface areas.  I’m new to this type of work and knowledge is power.

Experience and Learning

What did you like about the course?

Every topic was beneficial – it has provided me with a better outlook and view.  The facilitation was good.

What topics stood out for you?

Everything really.  I have a better view, my confidence is better and I have a better idea of where I need to develop further. Team building, listening and hearing views. It was educational, peer learning.

What are you likely to ‘take back’ to your life/work in the community?

I would use some of the tasks and exercises with our own groups. 

What difference has it made?

Is there anything you could or would do now that you wouldn’t have felt able to do before?

All of the above.  Processes / collaboration – all new concepts and I better understand them now.

What difference will this make to how you engage in your interface area?

I have confidence, a better outlook. More engagement with the community. I probably would have got to where I needed to be but the course really helped me fast track this. 

What difference will the course make to the interface area overall?

I will be more confident so hopefully the work I lead will be a better quality.'s picture
