Spectator Safety Management Programme 2016

Very good, high level of knowledge of instructors. Relaxed atmosphere

An excellent course providing all the relevant info to increase my knowledge and confidence to enable me to become competent in the role as safety officer

Excellent course, great instructions, very friendly and helpful, a lot to take in being new to this, but explained very well

Really well presented course by someone so knowledgeable in this industry. Absolutely loved it and very excited to crack on and ace this course and gain my qualification!

A very useful course, provided a useful knowledge of what I needed to learn and understand for the future. Sue's personality made the course a lot more exciting and interesting.

Excellent course with very good structure. Really beneficial to share knowledge and experience of other clubs / organisations and events.

Thank you so much - I've wanted to complete this course for years, and it really lived up to expectations!

Outstanding course, challenging but enjoyable. Delivered by someone who really knows the role and associated business. Great group of people who helped make the course a pleasure.

I believe that this has made me realise just what I didn't know and how to check a lot of things I took for granted.

"Now that the dust has settled after our one day international match and having just attended the safety de-briefing, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your invaluable help and support in delivering this international event."


John Handy

Son of proud Mum!
Durham County Cricket Club

"Now that everything has settled down, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and guidance during the recent Test Match."

"Most of all I want to thank you for making me believe that I was capable of passing my NVQ, without your support and friendship I know I would have struggled to pass. No words can express my gratitude for everything you have done for me. It still hasn't sunk in yet, but Theresa, Peter and my Mum are very proud of me haven't spoke to my sisters yet!"

"Thanks once again for everything and speak soon."

"Without exception, Kevin and the team of supervisors all commented on how much they enjoyed working with both yourself and John Handy as Safety Officers for the event."

"I hope that we can work together again in the future, perhaps at an Ashes Test!!"


David Preece

Safety Officer
Kidderminster Harriers

"Having completed the Event and Safety Management Course in Northampton recently it would be remiss of me if I did not take a moment to thank you and your colleagues for making the six days of the course so professionally and personally rewarding. As you know I have only just recently made the major leap from being a Steward Supervisor to Safety Officer at our club and I must admit to having some fears and trepidation about attending the course. However from day one you and your team made all of us on the course realise that we were all starting from the same base line and you quickly put me at ease in this respect."

"With all the best wishes for the future and if you are ever at a loose end on a Saturday afternoon (fat chance!) then you will always be welcome at Kidderminster Harriers F.C."
