Public Sector

Role play and training workshop 

'The feedback and evaluations have all been very positive. Thanks again to you and your colleagues for putting the scenarios together. They reflected really well the situations which our practitioners sometimes find themselves in. It was certainly worth us meeting to plan the session.

Not only did participants connect with the situations, but they also found the session energetic and participative in a non-threatening way. Your own leadership and the actors' skills made all the difference.

Thank you again for an enjoyable and worthwhile session. Should funding for our IP Networks continue - we would certainly consider using 'Tip of the Iceberg' again.
Pam Mogford District Manager Integrated Practice


Development, Partnership & Participation


“Tip of the Iceberg has worked on several Children’s Rights projects for CSF Participation Team, Hertfordshire County Council, delivering workshops for 11-19 year olds in both school and out of school settings.I have been extremely pleased with the quality of work provided.  Each project has required a good understanding of the topic and the ability to transform the project brief into an informative and engaging workshop for young people.  Tip of the Iceberg research and plan the sessions well and ensure that their team have an equal level of understanding around the topic.  I have attended several of the sessions and was impressed by the facilitators enthusiasm and ability to engage with young people, adapting questions and methods of engagement where necessary enabling them to explore the issues further with the young people.Tip of the Iceberg were also commissioned to record and report on each session.  The views and comments were recorded to a high standard and the final report contained an excellent analysis of the raw data

“Thank you so much for your fantastic performance at the Herts Awards last Friday.  You helped make it the most wonderful evening.  Thank you as well for all of the other people you enlisted to help make it such a truly magical evening – they were brilliant!”

Everyone who attended has been saying how good it was this year.  The young people’s hard work and attitude was a factor in this but without your support, guidance and positive attitude it would have been very difficult for them.

The event was seen as a huge success. I hope you'll pass on my plaudits to the rest of the team.”

"Thanks for everything.  This whole campaign would have been nothing without you all.  I know how much I appreciate all your efforts and all the work you’ve put into making this so successful...Once again, many, many thanks.  You’re all stars and I’ll certainly bear you guys in mind when anything that requires some sort of theatrical performance crops up in the future."

"Following the success of our High Speed Theatre Event at the Start Garden Party I thought I would share some stats and highlights with you to date...We’ve had approximately 3800 people view one of our 4 theatre performances (some coming to see 2 shows or more).

...Our main highlight was when Emma, Sarah, Claire and I were introduced to HRH Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and together with the Duchess, Alan Titchmarsh and some of the Marketing team, we sat and watched one of the performances with her, which she thoroughly enjoyed. We had a second Royal visit; the Duke of Gloucester popped by our theatre yesterday and browsed around.
 
Overall this has been a great success. We have launched Cut A Quarter, seeded our brand and Tread Lightly messages and given the public an enjoyable experience."
Suzanne Lestrade, Eurostar

I just wanted to say a big Thank you for the performance and workshops on Monday - the kids all thought it was brilliant and many of them have said that it was the best day they have had for PSHCE style activities. One girl can be quoted as saying "I thought it was going to be all diagrams and stuff, but that was just brilliant, really good fun"

PSHE Workshops and Plays

“The workshop made me think about issues faced by many young people and simple solutions to make yourself a lot happier.” (year 8 pupil)

“I think before my actions now after seeing the play.” (year 8 pupil)

“If I didn’t know what to do about a relationship I would now know what to do.” (year 9 pupil)

“What to do and be safe” (year 7 pupil)

“I am in control of my own actions” (year 10 pupil)

“Today made me think about what I do in life and what I can do to improve and change.” (year 9 pupil)

‘Prejudice is wrong, it makes you feel tiny and hated. If I saw someone being picked on I would stand up to them, it’s unfair, tell a teacher.’

‘The effects of bullying are vast and prejudice is a major problem, we can help stop bullying and prejudice by reporting it and encourage people not to do it.’

‘Prejudice makes people feel judged, they make victims upset because they’re bullied for a reason they can’t control. I can tell people who I trust what’s happening to make the bullying stop.’

I think after seeing the play I would cope with emotional situations a bit better because before I wouldn’t have known what to do.

I really enjoyed the play, made you realise more things about relationships.

I would make sure that I tell the right people my problems and think before I do something that I may later regret.


Network Project

Network helped me to think about….

  • Other people – their thoughts and feelings.
  • My life.
  • Teenage issues, problems and worries.
  • Relationships.
