What Our Partners Say

Huntingdon Logo
“The work of our ambassadors has had a hugely positive effect and has genuinely made a difference to young lives. They’ve become a well known and significant group and cause in the school community.”

Amy Tinson, School Support Leader, Huntingdon School (York) 

“Super, advice and guidance along the way plus someone to listen to your ideas and help with further suggestions. Fantastic support and course, friendly and welcoming, very informative.”

Mrs Agbanusi - SLT St Patrick’s - Leicester

Odyssey Trust Logo
“Worth-it are inspiring and creative leaders. I would recommend them 100% to develop approaches to school wellbeing.”

Annemarie Williams, CEO and Executive Principal, Odyssey Educational Trust

"I would recommend the coach training for the CYP workforce because it has such an impact on staff and young people. You will see results in the ways that your staff work and engage with young people. It gives staff more resources to use when working with young people."

Sarah Hamilton, Young Person’s Project Manager at Platfform

"Worth-it have been absolutely fantastic. I learnt things I didn't know about before, like positive psychology. When you start to test things out in school you really see people respond to it. It just has such a huge impact."

Carla Lawes, ARH Primary School
