It’s always nice to get good feedback and R.E.A.L. Directors have been sharing the good news from their recent site visits.

Rich Smith, Co-founder and Joint Managing Director of R.E.A.L. said: “Teamwork makes the dream work” after his visit to Sandhills. 

“It was nice to attend the Sandhills staff meeting this week and see some of the great work happening from the site,” he added.

Kelsey Hill, Director of People & Business Operations said: “What an incredible staffing team we have! Our learners are so lucky to work with such innovative and resilient people who go the extra mile everyday. I am so proud to be part of this team.”

Adrian O’Malley, Director of Education for R.E.A.L. has been to several sites: “It was great to get out and visit Blidworth, Music, Concorde, Ilkeston and Pewit sites. There was some really good stuff happening at all venues and it was pleasing to see all of our learners engaging well with staff.”

Adrian also visited Hinckley and Nanpantan when learners had returned from half term. Adrian said: “There was some great cooking happening across both sites, with pumpkin soup, curry and Halloween biscuits on the menu.

There were also other purposeful learning sessions taking place, including work on a balanced diet and targeted careers discussions.”
