"Attending the SINTO Next Generation Programme gave Lawrence the skills and confidence to become self managing after the retirement of his line manager, and during a period of rapid change and transition in the library service. Lawrence is undoubtedly better equipped to deliver children's library services than he was prior to attending this course."

Derek O'Connell, Development officer, Grimsby Central Library.
