“I am always impressed at the commitment to the staff and volunteer training and development programme which they consistently invest time and money into.

I have been involved in delivering the Choice Theory and Reality Therapy Training as endorsed by the William Glasser Institute UK – all the staff and volunteers undertake the initial practitioner training with senior staff progressing to full certification.

Whenever I work with The Write Time Team, the Choice Theory psychology comes through as a strong underpinning framework and system upon which they base all their work. They are currently undertaking their endorsement to become a Glasser Quality School, which uses the Choice Theory framework, values and ethos across the whole school – I fully support this progression.”
