“ CJ’s have employed over 150 veterans in the last 11 years of supporting schools across the UK. One of our challenges is finding veterans with the right aptitude to nurture and teach children resilience in the restorative “CJ way”.
“When I met Sean, his positive and professional outlook really resonated with me, we choose our partners extremely wisely, this ensures quality delivery and I think that Sean and his team will be able to deliver the Character Programme fantastically well across Wales.”
Being a veteran and ex Physical Training Instructor, Sean can adapt with a soft approach that schools love. We cant wait to start supporting more schools across Wales!
