Covid-19 CPR

We have stopped all face to face training to comply with Government guidance and regulation, we are still contactable and here for any enquiries or on line training. We continue to support our delegates on courses such as the Level 3 Award in Education and Training by video conference.

For those worried about their First Aid qualifications, the HSE have extended EFAW and FAW qualifications until the end of September as long as it ran out on or after the 16th March 2020.

For information on how to do CPR during the Covid-19 pandemic please watch this excellent video put out by The British Resuscitation Council.

A Day on the West Somerset Railway

Making the training realistic and relevant

We were delighted to be asked to deliver some first aid training for the West Somerset Railway.

Running between Minehead and Bishop’s Lydyard in Somerset, The West Somerset Railway is the longest heritage railway in the country. It is run by a small and dedicated team of employees and over 1000 volunteers!

“The best first aid training I have ever had”

John B

After delivering a one day Emergency First Aid at Work qualification to some of the facilities team it was noted that they may need some additional training on how to deal with catastrophic bleeding and falls from height.

Evince Training sprang into action and put together an exhilarating day of additional instruction and scenarios. We were assisted by some volunteers who became casualties and the railway allowed us to use a siding at Dunster Station. The make-up, the acting and the location made this a training event to remember.

Conflict Management for Schools and Colleges

Schools and Colleges frequently experience conflict.  This arises from students, parents/guardians and staff.  Learning new ways to understand conflict and to use communication tools to resolve tension and problem solve is at the heart of our approach.  Our experience is that the source of conflict varies from school to school.  As with every training programme we design a bespoke programme to focus on the specific issues relevant to your organisation.

We will provide a variety of learning resources, some familiar, some less so.  We find the use of theatre highly effective to reinforce traditional learning.  It introduces scenarios and the opportunity for your colleagues to engage, identifying the communication tools to reinforce the professional knowledge they have to blend new solutions to challenging situations.


The team from Evince provided a bespoke package for all the staff at my school. It was delivered in an informative and enjoyable way, with lots of practical tips that all staff could use in their everyday interactions with stakeholders. Staff left the day feeling empowered and confident to communicate with stakeholders, having explored a number of real life scenarios. I would recommend that all schools provide this training for all staff as successful communication and conflict management is essential to the happiness and well being of all”.

Claire Addis, Principal at Jewell Academy, Bournemouth

All teaching is rewarding and powerfully so.  Helping professionals to work more effectively and comfortably in their environment rewards us in exactly this way.  Our commitment to you is to provide excellent teaching so that you benefit from our knowledge and practical experience, tailor-made for your specific needs.

Personal Style Inventory

Prices on request Contact Us Today

Do you want to know more about yourself and how you make key decisions in all aspects of your life?

Would you like to take part in an engaging and interactive experience that will help build confidence and productivity in your team?

Then the Personal Style Inventory course for you! Our experienced facilitators will guide you through the exploration process.

Based on the work of Carl Jung and Myers Briggs the PSI course is informative and fun.

What sets the PSI apart? Other Jungian instruments assess respondents’ behaviour, which can be affected by external factors such as work environment. The PSI captures behavioural preferences, which we believe more accurately measures a respondent’s personality strengths and weaknesses.

Learning Outcomes
Identify preference for one of 16 personality styles
Explore the potential strengths and weaknesses of each personality style
Understand how each style is likely to affect other individuals and/or group members
Discover how to capitalise on strengths of others

Theory
The PSI is based on Carl Jung’s theory of personality types. Jung found recognisable and repeated patterns in behaviours linked to our conscious perceiving of the world, our decision-making about the world, our attitudes toward life and our relationship to the expectations of the world. These patterns, for almost all of the people Jung observed or read about fell into 1 of several pairs of reactions. We all engage in all of these behaviours but almost always engage in only 1 of each pair with any facility.

The pairs of reactions — or personal style preferences — include:
Extraversion or Introversion
Sensing or Intuiting
Thinking or Feeling
Perceiving or Judging

The PSI vs. the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
Both the PSI and the MBTI use Jungian theory to measure personality style. However, each instrument asks the individual to assume a different frame of reference. The MBTI attempts to measure how people usually behave. The PSI measures how people would prefer to behave. We believe this unveils a style closer to the true nature of the individual’s personality style.

How does it work?
Individuals respond to a series of 32 statements, each describing a behaviour associated with 1 of the 4 pairs of personal style preferences. A trained facilitator will then lead the session. The result is a personality style preference profile that is abbreviated by a combination of four letters (i.e. ISTP = Introverted/Sensing/Thinking/Perceiving).

A powerful tool for both individuals and teams, the PSI also includes a chart for recording team member personality types, questions for team discussion and detailed instructions for developing a team profile and conducting a complete workshop.

Uses for the PSI
The PSI is effective when used as a stand-alone learning instrument or as part of a more comprehensive training programme. It’s the perfect start to a style-awareness training program or to programmes for:

Personal Style
Communication
Diversity
Team-Building
