Flower 125 Training

I had to write to let you know what a fantastic training you and the team put on for us this week. In 10 years of doing what I do, I have attended many training courses and the Flower 125 project is head and shoulders above anything I have ever done before. The whole experience was so amazing and enjoyable.

No two flowers are alike.

We have trained hundreds of people to facilitate and implement the Flower 125 Programme successfully and with ease. For new facilitators, the Flower 125 Programme is highly adaptable in a variety of educational and non-educational environments.

Because of its flexibility, our hope is that the Flower 125 trainee will become more of a specialist in his or her own particular implementation of the programme than the writers of this resource pack.

What to expect from our training:

To facilitate the Flower 125 Health Programme, our trainees can expect stimulating and creative training from our programme where everyone will have the opportunity to:

• Tailor the programme to suit your particular educational needs.
• Experience an action method session in real time.
• Uncover deeper meanings to problematic behavior in your school or institution.
• Learn strategies to address problematic behavior using a tried and true method.
• Leave the training with a comprehensive resource pack to enable you to run the programme.
• Meet other colleagues who are working in similar situations and exchange best practices with them.
• Find out about the history of this revolutionary health and well-being programme.
• Have fun while doing all of the above!

I genuinely appreciated the commitment and enthusiasm of the facilitators.
