What our learners have to say…

“I was surprised by the range of NVQs and Technical Certificates that were available. I didn’t realise how many different engineering occupations there were.” – William Peters

“The qualification helped me get a well paid job with good prospects” – Lesley Hinds

“Working towards an NVQ has meant more pay, a good job, meeting new people, getting real industry experience and the security of knowing I have an industry recognised qualification to stand me in good stead now and in the future” – Robert Gamgee, Willow Tree Developments

“I completed a comprehensive initial assessment – this was used to find me a suitable well paid job and made sure that I was on the right level course. I’ve told all my friends that Work Based Learning is well paid, and leads to industry recognised qualifications. It’s great.” – Diane Evans
