Whitley Bay Partnership of Schools
Clara’s professional approach to her work significantly benefitted our project, and resulted in creating a quality end product that has been used within schools in the Whitley Bay area by pupils, young people, and parent groups alike. Throughout her time on this project Clara showed to have excellent communication, motivation, and understanding when working with both young people and professionals, and would be a valuable asset to any organisation looking to work with a facilitator.

Young people’s inspection Programme
“Clara worked with the Participation Unit and a group of young people to develop a young people’s inspection programme for services in Newcastle. Her skills in bringing the young people together and keeping them on task were a great asset, and they all benefited from using the creative methods she brought to the project. Feedback from the young people was excellent, and the finished product is exactly what we were looking for”.

Having worked with Little Big Butterfly a few times I would certainly recommend them. Little Big Butterfly’s work is collaborative, inventive and forward thinking. But for me what really makes Little Big Butterfly stand out is the balanced combination of Clara Shield’s professionalism and ethics.

“The assertiveness training was a great training experience, it was fun and helped me learn new skills along the way, how to deal with people etc, it made me learn a lot of things about myself; how I can be passive in certain situations, and I learnt the different behaviour types.

I would recommend this type of training as i think its very valuable. Since the training, in my day to day life I think of the assertiveness training and what I have learnt and now apply it all. In certain situations before I might have just been passive and said yes to certain things, now I have the confidence and have the skills to be assertiveness and ‘Say No’.”
“We have found that working with Little Big Butterfly on our Film and Media projects has been an asset to our organisation. It is often difficult to find drama facilitators who are as skilled in their art as they are in engaging with young people, which is vital for a successful project and experience for participants. Clara’s background as a youth worker has made the difference in delivering media opportunities for young people that are as focussed on the process as much as the product. We would highly recommend Little Big Butterfly and look forward to working with the company again in the future”.
