McGuire Online course - UK South

The first ever online McGuire Course was run the week before Christmas.  This was a massive step for the programme to take as we knew it would be so different from the usual face to face course.   The course was run by Greig Goldman and Hannah Datama with 6 new students and approx 12 coaches to support them throughout the course.

I never felt like I would be able to be a teacher, social worker or residential support worker when I often struggled to say my own name. I felt destined to be in a mind-numbingly dull office job sat behind a computer all day and going through life speaking as little as possible.
