Nim Sond (Assoc CIPD - Office Manager & PA to Principal at Croft Academy)

Dear David, Thankyou for the recent PREVENT presentation. All staff really enjoyed it and found it very interesting!! You had all the staff really engaged : )

Kelly Vaughan (Headteacher at Pool Hayes Primary)

Dave leads engaging, up to date and relevant training. My staff have referred to his Prevent training in other CPD and felt that they really learned from his input.

Natalie Carvey (Class Teacher at Walsall Council)

I attended PREVENT training this afternoon with David and was really impressed with his work experience and knowledge of radicalisation. David was a confident and concise speaker who engaged all staff who attended the training. The information was informative and up to date. I would highly recommend David for any training or public speaking needs.

I would like to put on record how impressed the children and staff of Jubilee Academy were with David Chadwick’s brilliant and thought provoking sessions on Internet Safety and Radicalisation. David delivered his programme to all of our Key Stage 2 classes. It is fair to say rarely have we had such unanimous positive feedback from our children.

All of the activities challenged our children’s thinking on very serious issues. The activities were well planned, with clear explanations and most importantly were age appropriate. They were also delivered in a fun way. Seldom have I seen our children so enthused. I actually had a posse of Year 6 children who came to see me to ask if David can come back.

I would quite happily buy David in every year to work with our children. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information.

David came to Emmanuel School on Thursday 6th April to deliver radicalisation talks to our secondary pupils and a keeping safe talk to our Years 4, 5 and 6 pupils.


I just wanted to feedback and say how much I appreciated David speaking to our pupils and for the time he spent writing such a brilliant presentation.  Our pupils found the presentation interesting and a revelation about all that is going on in the country and shockingly on their doorsteps.


The staff said that David was very professional, affable and delivered such a difficult subject faultlessly.


I would certainly welcome David back at Emmanuel School in the future or recommend him to other schools.

I would like to express my grateful thanks for the visit by Dave to my class on Tuesday 23rd May - the day following the dreadful incident in Manchester. All of my class knew what had happened but he dealt with the children's questions about the event very carefully and tactfully - being factual but not putting too much emphasis on the 'awfulness' of the event.


Following this, he went on to his prepared presentation about Radicalisation which was delivered at such a level as to allow all children in the class, including those with SEND, to be included in the discussions.

His visit was very worthwhile and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Mrs Begum

Thank you for coming into our school and working with our students. We have received feedback from all of our students who loved the session. They have learnt a lot from the sessions and have asked me to pass on their thanks. You are extremely knowledgeable in your field and are excellent at getting information from the children.

We look forward to working with you again soon.

Debbie Manby

I would like to take this opportunity to provide feedback for the above training sessions. Dave provided tailored training sessions for the whole school.  We found the subject matter to be very relevant to our setting and current media issues.  The sessions were very well delivered by Dave who was clear and friendly in his persona. He also pitched the material in an appropriate way using suitable teaching materials. The children were thoroughly engaged during the sessions and had nothing but positive things to say afterwards. To add, Dave was able to highlight a potential safeguarding issue and forwarded this to the school to investigate. Thorough in every way.

So successful were the sessions that I have asked Dave if he will return at the start of the new academic year to deliver again to our new Year 3 pupils.

I feel that the work carried out by Dave was much more than useful and I would not hesitate in recommending the sessions to any school.
