"John has been running sessions for our son in bushcraft and survival skills and it has been a fantastic life enhancing experience.
John has great expertise and is good fun, supportive and positive and has made learning about surviving in the wild an active, totally hands on and rewarding experience that has built confidence and independence in our son while he acquires practical life skills brilliant!"

"I have known John for ten years including a period where John and I were part of the same management team within Leeds Youth Service. Throughout that period I have witnessed John show nothing but a determined endeavor to provide a safe, effective and beneficial service to young people.
Some of John’s qualities when working with young people are clear. Listening, supporting, attention to detail and a genuine interest in helping young people achieve at their level. John has a large range of approaches he applies to his work including effective challenging of group dynamics using techniques that only come with experience. John’s key skill lies in the way he always applies a ‘fun’ atmosphere to his delivery resulting in better engagement with even the most reluctant learners, both groups and individuals.
John has and can adapt delivery of out outdoor education sessions with young people to suit a range of settings. This includes on street work, local public facilities such as parks and public woods, activity centres and residential venues.
John continues to support the work I am currently managing and I know first-hand the positive value John brings to our Project’s reputation and customer service."

John Has developed Training on Bush Craft and working in the outdoors which he has delivered to our professional staff enabling them to deliver with confidence to young people.
John has worked with young people for a number of years and I have seen him engage with enthusiasm and capture the interest of their minds leading to full participation.
As someone who has dedicated a huge amount of time to his craft John exudes ability to deliver a well prepared session to young people. Cooking in the wild, surviving in the outdoors and developing skills to take from the wild into everyday life John is the person to deliver.
