Information taken from Learner Survey – July 2019

I managed to pass my GCSE, probably one of the oldest learners at age 64. Now I’m looking to get back into learning and hopefully take an A level in maths.”


Studying English Functional Skills, I now have an improved confidence and I can walk around with my head held high.


Helped me find the real me. I now have the confidence and the qualification to find myself a job. Thank you to my tutors who believed in me and pushed me to my limits it sure has paid off.


I have now passed both my functional skills courses and am currently studying for GCSE’s. I must admit it’s much better and I am way more confident.”


Everybody’s really welcoming, and nobody judges you, and you can be who you want to be. It’s just a great way to get going.


Just started the Introduction to Counselling Course & it is excellent!


Really enjoyed the Introduction to Training course. The trainer’s style was creative and engaging. Would recommend to anyone.


I recently attended two of the free workshops and I was amazed how much I learnt, the tutors were very passionate about the craft they were teaching and the fact we all got to bring items home that we made was so wonderful. I would recommend to anybody.


I’ve just received my results and have passed both my GCSE English & Maths. I left school in 1988. Getting the chance to redo them was a great opportunity for me. Such a good feeling to have passed, onwards and upwards for me.
