  • Female Genital Mutilation

    I enjoyed the way that this module has been changed since the last time that I completed it. It was very easy to use and it was very quick to get through and work through at your own speed rather than at the speed of the computers
    KM 04/08/2015
    It was really easy to navigate and the lay out made it easy to use and understand. I liked that there were challenges throughout to test what we were being taught. Really easy to use and really informative!

    It's the first time I have done a safe guarding course on-line and it was easy to access and module covered more than I thought and have gained knowledge
    SM 08/07/2015
    Although it had some distressing information, the content was relevant to day to day practices in today's society. The safe button is a good idea as it can be difficult to take it all in at once

    The presentation made it easy to follow and absorb the information. Additional information provided was very useful
    CH 19/06/2015
    I liked that I could complete this in my own timeframe and at a pace that I set. I also liked that at every opportunity further options to gain more insight into a topic was given. I also liked the safe space - I didn't need to use this facility but think that it's a brilliant idea
    JP 19/05/2015
    The graphics and layout are really clear and simple and I liked the more interactive features such as clicking on a question to reveal and answer or dragging items across into the right box rather than just ticking an answer
