We recognise that the life of a trainer can be a lonely one and we are all looking for ideas to make our training delivery engaging, motivating and dynamic for all of our learners. We have created a range of support materials from handouts, e-books, videos, and even free CPD courses.

Our Team

We totally believe in the saying “there is no I in team”

Whether teaching, assessing or undertaking quality assurance, they all provide focused feedback to learners, enabling them to complete their qualifications quickly and efficiently, are supportive and, most importantly, use ‘plain English’ when communicating with our learners.

Testimonials

A good reputation is key to success and we pride ourselves on the high quality of our feedback and repeat business from many of our corporate customers. But don’t take our word for it – take a look at a small snapshot of some of the feedback we have received from past courses.

Diane the tutor was extremely knowledgeable, passionate and inclusive and used a great variety of activities. The 3 days flew by… a testament to an inspirational teacher!

Jennifer AET Bham Sept 18

The tutors were amazing, very helpful and professional but friendly and warm. Professional and enjoyable.

 

 

Andre AET Birmingham Dec 18

Tutor was extremely good at explaining areas that were quite academic or technical in a way the group all understood. Always ready to listen and support learners.

 

Jacqueline AET Bham Nov 18

I just wanted to express how much I took from your course, gaining the award was something I value. Ironically at a recent interview I had to do a  15 minute micro-teach  and I drew heavily on the training days.
