Dear Jeff

I just wanted to take this opportunity of thanking you for running the course last Thursday despite the sad passing of your father the day before.

I really liked your setup and the rationale behind only ever training up to four people.

It is always a pleasure to meet an ex-Shoreditch student!!  It was really a special place!

Thanks for showing me the brilliant laser cutters, but most importantly for getting my head back in gear with the Creo software after I had learned ProEngineer in 2008!!
Seeing the date of those files was a real shock as it has taken all this time for me to get PCs that will run the software.

I have attached a sneak preview of the model I created with two new parts – the octagonal hub I created on the course and a diagonal strut I completed at home.

Thanks also for providing the food and drink – much appreciated.

Hope to keep in touch Jeff and all the best for the future.

I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone needing training in Creo.

Best wishes

David Lang

Yesterday was very helpful. I feel we have come away from the day with some important updates regarding the health and safety of staff and students. Thank you also for the details you have emailed me, I am now writing up an assessment of risks and the necessary work that now must be undertaken in each room in order to meet BS 4163 regulations.”

Gaston, H&S Training at Eastlea School Nov 2013
“Having taken over as Head of Department, it was very clear that there were issues in the department that needed to be addressed.
I arranged a safety audit with Jeff Wickham, who conducted a full site and staff survey. This proved to be the extremely excellent value for money as he was able to highlight all of the issues that the department faced and give the appropriate actions that needed to be taken for the department to comply with the current safety standards for schools.
Jeff was brilliant at prioritising the work that should be carried out and advising us of where the best service could be sourced, he also met with the senior leadership team to ensure that they were fully aware of the urgency needed to resolve the issues.

The department also underwent a four day DATA safety training program with Jeff.
He was extremely knowledgeable and professional and went above and beyond the remit of the training program when unforeseen machine issues cropped up that he helped us to rectify.

The whole experience was very educational and enlightening and although all staff were competent machine users, we all learnt better practice.

Excellent service. Thank you.  “

Sandra Gordon, HOD Arch Tenison
You are brilliant.
Thank you for looking into this for me.
I have not had a chance to contact CLEAPS, as last week was just so overwhelmingly tough and we still have this week and the AS students to get finished.

I will get onto them hopefully this week.”

Sandra, La Retraites
“Hi Jeff

I just wanted to personally thank you for the training course that I took part in this week.

Having been an engineer since 1970, it was refreshing to partake in a course that was extremely interesting and applicable.
I have been the D&T Technician at The Judd School since September 2009 and have really enjoyed the experience. I only work three days a week, and as you can probably imagine my time is always fully utilised.

It was so great to pick up all the little hints and tips that you provided during the course. We seemed to cover so much in just three days.
It is amazing how much we all take for granted and assume that we are competent and safe. Hopefully, you have rectified this and I am now able to tackle new tasks with the knowledge gained from the course.

This course  has provided the opportunity for the department to review working practises, so that we can continue to teach students the subject in a safe way and in the correct controlled environment.

Once again – many thanks and hopefully we will meet again in the not too distant future.

Kind regards”

Mel Wickenden, D&T Technician The Judd school
