    OMG - this course would have been super helpful when i started working with Support Workers 2 years ago! No-one clearly explained this information to me. I didn't know what to expect or what I was doing with Support Workers. Even with some experience now using Support Workers, I learnt several new things from this course and I gained some helpful new resources to try out.
