interesting content

Very informative and relevant.

It was very useful


Good content, sometimes difficult to navigate




Learning about the 'bottom up' approach is very helpful and informative.

Great information and nicely presented which made it easy to read and interact with. Would be nice to see how you've gone wrong with the quiz answers though.

Content good.

questions wording can be difficult to understand, not reason as to why questions answered incorrectly

needed guidance as to which answers were correct

The information is very useful, however, some guidance on the incorrect answer for the quiz would be useful for my own learning.

No opportunities to reflect on and learn from mistakes made in the quiz.

Very good



Useful to identify and consider the indicators of trauma and how I might help support a traumatised person.

The questions are very difficult to understand at times and subjective.

Thought provoking

very informative

I have learnt a lot from this course

Accessible, interesting with concrete examples. Interface could be more better as the system tended to bug...

This was a very informative course with a lot of knowledge and skill base that I can apply in my role.

Very detailed and well explained.

Great course, really informative 👍

Very useful and informative course.

The course was very informative and it helped me to expand my knowledge of trauma and adverse childhood experiences.

Quiz is vague and confusing despite understanding content. Content itself is good and interesting

Interesting information

The course content was very good. Quiz as others have said is very misleading and level 1 was the same. Not easy to navigate. Sort out the quiz and the whole experience would be much better!!

Very good content however the quiz at the end the questions were very misleading and would not display which questions were answered incorrectly. Overall turned out to be a waste of time such a shame.

I found this a better course than level one. The video clips in particular were very succinct and useful.

Very informative.

Very are too ambiguous.

Really interesting content, got me thinking but poor navigation on the site and the test was not the easiest to work with.

useful content but quiz and navigation poor

useful content, but quiz and navigation are poor


Took too long to load

poor technology - took a long time

A challenging course that makes you alert to the full effects of trauma.

The content was useful but the navigation was very difficult, both within the slides and around the website. (E.g. the ‘Next’ arrow below the bottom left of the slides could be re-labelled something like ‘Jump to Quiz’ to clarify that it isn’t the means of just getting to the next slide.)
