I have mental health needs and Suzanne supported me with these making me feel even I could do well. explained things in a way that was fun and that I could understand and never made me feel stupid or ashamed. Suzanne supported me in completing an application form, doing a mock interview and through having an actual interview with a company. I start in my new job next month and Suzanne helped explain my contract and responsibilities. Me and my little boy can't thank you enough, I have been so lucky to be n this course.

I am a more confident person even in a short span of time and now feel I can go further.The highlight of this course has been getting an interview that was down to Suzanne. She learnt me how to do a CV, make phone calls, write an email and what an interview concerns. I have had the news of being successful at the interview and soon start my new position. Thank so very much, Suzanne

. his has been the best course I have been on, This course has been fun and educational and actually interesting. Suzanne is fun and vibrant and good at her job, I've learnt how to do better in interviews I actually have one lined up thanks to Suzanne's support completing an application form, and more about how to act in a work filled environment, I've taken a lot from the course and I believe it will also help me later in life

I lack confidence in groups but with Suzanne's help and understanding I was able to get to know and work with the group and soon felt at ease to share my views. Suzanne was very helpful and approachable there was no such thing as a daft question. She has a bubbly personality and I genuinely enjoyed the stories and examples she told from her own experiences to help the units and tasks come to life. Thanks to Suzanne I had an interview for the first time in five years.

After taking the course I have learnt different ways of finding work and getting prepared for an interview using a three point system. Suzanne helped me by explaining things in a way I could understand because of my learning needs and dyslexia. I now have three interviews lined up. I will keep smiling thanks to Suzanne

I have been on many training courses this is the first one where I have actually enjoyed myself. My tutor Suzanne gave me positive support and encouragement. She made me laugh as well as teaching me new skills and knowledge. I am sorry the course has come to an end, however I now have a brilliant CV and preparations for an interview. Thank you

On day one I was so nervous because I have anxiety and little self confidence. Suzanne was so supportive and actually listened to me and gave me so much support. With her help I completed an application form and then got an interview, she helped me practice in a mock and even made me believe in myself. I can't believe I was offered the job, it will make such a different to me and my family. I have gained more knowledge and confidence and I have a job to look forward to Thanks Suzanne

I have been currently been studying Personal Development for Employability level 1, This course has helped me to have more confidence in myself as Leila talked me through some short term goals that helped build my confidence up. Leila has also helped me develop my long term goals so that they are attainable. Leila has also helped me develop my communication skills towards others. This course has also helped me to develop my skills for applying for jobs and how to use the internet safely, this has also helped me to be more financially aware. I would recommend this to anyone who is unemployed as its great to put on your CV.

The course was enjoyable and the subjects felt much more relevant to me than similar subjects on other courses, so it felt like that the course given me something I can use. Scott knew what he was talking about and gave us real life examples and made it seem fun, as well as the serious side to be used in our job hunts.

I was apprehensive about starting this course but have actually really enjoyed it. I'm much more confident with my Maths and English skills. Andy puts you at ease and makes the lessons fun and relaxed. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who isn't confident with their Maths and English.

When i first attended the course i was not overly excited to come, the whole being with people i didn't know was petrifing. After meeting everyone i wasnt as terrified, they are all lovely girls to work with, Andy is so easy to get along with, he has the patients for us all, mainly when what we was doing if i didnt understand he would keep coming back to me if i looked all confused and would talk me through it over and over until i did understand. I loved the fact he wouldnt move on from what we was doing until we all fully understood what we was doing. Would really love to come back to do my next level maths and english.

I enjoyed the employability course more than the others courses I have been on, especially the interview skills which helped me. I got on well with Scott as he supported me throughout the course.
