When I started the course I thought it would be a waste of time but it brought out who I really am Suzanne has a way of teaching that actually makes me want to learn and I've never had anyone have as much patience and has given me so much confidence. She always goes above and beyond helping me to complete a job application. She listens and understands I don't think I'll ever have anyone else to teach me like her. The only problem is it isn't longer

I wasn't positive about this course I thought it would be like all the other courses ive been put on. it was different as I was supported and treated with respect and not like a kid. Suzanne was polite and we shared our experiences and were never judged.

I have grown so much on this course, in understanding how to really apply for a job and the effort that I can apply to help myself. Suzanne is a joy to be around and her believe in my ability has really helped me attend and complete the course. Here's to the next course :-)

I have come away from this course feeling so confident and really having a boost to my self esteem. Suzanne is such a positive person and it helps lifts you and realise you can control how you view and feel. I now feel I am ready to really apply for jobs and believe in myself and my mindset is so focused to progress. At the start of the two weeks I felt my CV and interview approach were ok now I realise there is a whole other level I can aim for. I cant wait to progress onto a functional skills course as I don't want the experience and support to end!

This course has been brilliant I have been on Employability courses before and thought this would be the same just a waste of time. But I have learnt more on this course as Suzanne is a brilliant tutor, she has taken the time to spend time with me to give me support and actually listen to me. She understands people and knows a lot about different sectors and jobs. I know have a CV that really matchs me and I now feel so much more positive

The course was very easy going, easy tom engage with others and I enjoyed coming, I will miss the environment Scott created. I have developed valuable skills for interviews, CV's and application forms. Scott was very approachable, friendly, understanding and a joy around, he made the learning a fun experience.

I have been overwhelmed with the help Scott has given me. He has helped me to go through the steps I need to take to achieve the career I wanted and helped me set out clear goals. I would happily attend more courses with Scott, he has really opened my eyes to what I can achieve, I cannot thank him enough.

I found the Personal development course very interesting and valuable, it taught me things I wasn't confident with like interview skills and support with application forms. Scott was brilliant, he explains things really well so you have a better understanding.

Tutor was very good and easy to get on and knew how to assist and help me. Better with more people on course as difficult to get most from role plays. Course books dated. I enjoyed the course and would enrol on another one .
