Quotes from learners and employers:

We’ve been delivering the Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools qualifications for a while now, and here’s a selection of comments from learners who achieved their qualification with us recently:

The King Edmund School:

“A hugely worthwhile course for anyone working with children. It has encouraged me to look at how I can improve pupils individual learning and focused me on the many difficulties children face every day at school. It was particularly useful to look at Government Legislation to get an aerial view of education and how this affects every child in the UK. My Tutor was so encouraging and made the course work very easy to understand and achieve my goals; Thank you”

”The course was professionally delivered in manageable units of work. My tutor was very helpful and easily contactable; our regular meetings helped keep me on track and were an opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback face to face. This course is highly recommended.”KES-LEARNERS-285x228

“I’m currently doing the level 2 course. I didn’t really want to do it because I lack confidence. The only reason I got through this was because of the help and support I got from VTS’s assessor, she was always there when I needed her , she also has boosted my confidence so much so that I now feel I perhaps could do another course. Thank you for giving me this opportunity.”

Moulsham Infant School:

“Both our LSA’s are now more skilled and self-assured and consequently have been more effective in their roles in school. VTS’s assessor is very easy to talk to and extremely helpful”.

Ramsden Hall School:

“Prior to doing this course I had not studied for years therefore I was a bit apprehensive, however with the guidance and expertise of VTS’s assessor I grew with confidence throughout the course. I have now completed the level 2 and have learnt a lot along the way, it has helped my role as a Learning support assistant and I am looking forward to doing the level 3.”

We have recently devised a three day awareness programme for Care Homes and Domicillary Care providers. Comprising awareness training in Fire Safety, Health and Safety, Food and Hygeine, Epilepsy, Moving and Handling, COSHH and Infection Control, Care Planning, SOVA and First Aid, here’s what Bluewater Care had to say about the training they received:

Bluewater Care:
• “All the courses were delivered in a professional manner.”
• “The Tutors were relaxed and enthusiastic”
• “Plenty of useful information and examples”
• “I have improved my knowledge”
• “Very enjoyable and informative”
• “I have really enjoyed the whole three days, thank you for all the time spent with the tutors and for all the information and handouts. I would not hesitate to recommend this programme to others”.
