Introduction to Stonegate Training Consultancies


Welcome to the website….

Below is an overview of some of the activities we undertake, if you cannot find what you are looking for please get in touch, much of our work has been developed as a result of individual requests which has then proven useful to other organisations.


Here you will find the training pages of the Stonegate Training Consultancies website. Please feel free to browse the overviews of the training courses we offer. Each course can be used for Local Authority/Organisational personnel, practitioners in early years and playwork or can be adapted for staff in other areas of business. The training programmes are designed in such a way that they can be pitched for use with practitioners, leaders, managers, middle managers or officers and can be used for a range of continuing professional development situations. If there is a specific training programme you require that is not mentioned here, then please get in touch – we are always keen to develop new training programmes to respond to your requirements.

Ella’s Blog

One of the training courses we offer is around developing the use of Empathy Dolls. These powerful resources are used to support children in a range of situations: including emotional wellbeing, acceptable behaviour and learning about friendships. On the Ella’s Blog pages you will meet Ella and her friends… Ella is our resident Empathy Doll blog writer. Find out what Ella and her friends have been up to recently, have a look at the photographs and read some of the blog entries.
