Sixth Sense Training Limited
Who are we?
We are a training company, delivering one-day courses that are both informative and entertaining. We also get employed to facilitate sessions, support teams and provide advice.
What sort of courses do we deliver?
‘Problem Solving Partnerships’ is our most popular course and the one first featured by Sixth Sense Training. By the end of this course, those attending will be proficient in applying a Problem Solving Process. It covers: defining a problem correctly (not as easy as it seems); setting an aim; undertaking research and analysis; innovative thinking; creating responses and evaluation. We also cover recognising the work of others and sharing good practice.
‘Engaging with Communities’. By the end of this course, those attending will be efficient in engaging with their community, using a concise engagement process based on years of best practice from around the world.
‘Reducing Crime and Disorder’. By the end of this course, those attending will be capable of applying a range of Crime and Prevention theories and methods in order to reduce their own Crime and Disorder problems.
‘Information Sharing’. By the end of this course, those attending will be confident in requesting and sharing information legally with others. Due to the legislation being taught, this is our only course which is limited to the UK mainland. We have both an English/Welsh and a Scottish version to reflect the differences in the Anti Social Behaviour laws.
‘Presentation Skills’. By the end of this course, those attending will be able to deliver an effective presentation using a systematic approach for training and presentations. We also cover what makes a good PowerPoint.
Who have we trained over the years?
We have trained thousands of people from Police Forces; Fire and Rescue; Local Authorities (Community Safety, Trading Standards, Planning, Licensing, Legal Services, Library staff, Street and Park Services and Environment Officers); Probation; Youth services; Integrated Offenders Units; Housing departments and Social Landlords. We have also trained Researchers and Analysts from the Police, Council, Fire Department and combined Intelligence Units. In addition, we have trained elected members and members of the community, for example: Community Crime Fighters; Neighbourhood Watch; Tenants’ groups and Ward panel members.
What are our courses like?
We have developed all our training, presentation and support material to ensure that people from the agencies, private and public, statutory and voluntary sectors can learn and make a positive contribution in the sessions.
We are qualified trainers and so have produced all our material following the principles of student-based activities. We use a wide range of methods to deliver the training, such as DVDs, group work, presentations, and discussions. We make use of the broadest range of examples to facilitate understanding. All our material is produced in Plain English.
To prevent people from being excluded, our material and examples are made up of those provided by them on the day. The examples used are those that, as trainers, we know bring out key learning points. Some examples are unrelated to community safety to allow people to see the process itself, without becoming too involved in the specific tactics.
This is a very successful formula. We average 95% very satisfied with the remainder satisfied. We can provide references, points of contacts with other Safety Partnerships and access to all our assessment sheets.
Where do we train? We come to you, wherever you are, literally. You select the venue and arrange any catering that meets the requirements of your people and your budgets.
How many do we train? We train up to twenty people per course.

I am an accomplished trainer and learning and development specialist and have been involved in staff development for over 20 years. I hold a Certificate in Education and I am an assessor and verifier.
