What do students say about our courses?


Laura Gures

Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools


“This course has totally changed my career. I am now working in a job that I thoroughly love. I was looking for a career change and, after volunteering at a school and loving working with children, decided to retrain as a teaching assistant. In doing the course, it enabled me to gain employment as a teaching assistant. The whole course was enjoyable. Online study worked perfectly for me; I needed the flexibility to study at my own pace in my spare time!”

Philip Chamberlainn

SEN Teacher

Studied Level 2 Certificate in Understanding Children and Young People’s Mental Health


“A well thought out course, with wonderfully quick and constructive feedback. I wanted to study this course to solidify my knowledge and help me provide the best care possible in my role, as I work in a SEN school, supporting students who may need help.

The course has been a huge benefit as it has cemented my knowledge and helped me somewhat to understand how to help my students.”
