“The advanced communication course helped us talk through the difficult situations we experience and how we could handle things differently. Interactive activities were a good way of sharing how the techniques learnt can be applied to the scenarios we face everyday” Dave Powers, Supervisor, West Mids Police 999 Call Centre Team

“The Course was an extremely positive experience which surpassed my expectations. I was surprised how much I learnt. I now know I have amazing potential. I am delighted with the outcomes.”- Alison Wynne, Head of Planning, South Staffordshire Primary Care Trust

“A powerful course, I will certainly be recommending the course to colleagues.” Andrew Watkins, Learning and Development Consultant, Coventry University.

“Probably the best course I have ever attended. Ellen is a superb trainer.”Angela Ballard - Warwickshire County Council

“I count myself as extremely fortunate to have been trained by Ellen and her colleagues employed within the Learning Path. The development opportunity the NLP training created for me has not only been value for money for my organisation but has enhanced my own personal skills to an extent that I can only equate to life changing. I undertook the NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner courses with the Learning path which has created ability for me to provide opportunities for leadership development within my own organisation.

The opportunity has also inspired me to personally develop myself as a trainer and life coach. I believe that these opportunities would not have been possible without the investment with the Learning Path. I am aware that that there are alternative providers of NLP in the market but Ellen and the Learning path are guaranteed to provide value for money training and also give the necessary confidence to be able to practically use the learning in everyday life.

The training modules are designed to be both fun and creative which can only inspire and encourage the learner. I can honestly say there were no dissatisfied customers on the courses that I attended. I firmly wish both Ellen and her colleague’s every success in the future as they deserve a high recommendation.” Peter Turner Senior HR Manager and Lead for Equalities – Heart of Birmingham Teaching Primary Care Trust

“I booked an NLP For Business Excellence course, delivered by Ellen, the founder and lead trainer of The Learning Path. Her delivery style made the subject easy to understand, and enabled me to consolidate it with other professional courses I have attended. The course gave me a richer understanding of myself and human nature. It helped me understand in a much clearer way than ever before about why certain strategies that I had learned on other courses, worked in mediation and negotiation. I found the subject really interesting and went on to attend another four day course, again with The Learning Path. I now use the techniques on a daily basis and have adopted them almost as an unconscious competence. The Learning Paths training is excellent and the centre at Bordesley Hall is first class.”  Nick Hughes  Serving Police Sergeant
