Nothing is more important to us than the very best feedback from our clients.

Plymouth City Council has been working with (Plymouth Training and Consultancy) for the last 4 years to deliver Youth Work apprenticeships. It’s an absolute joy to be working with such a dedicated training provider who specialises in supporting the development of young people within our youth work sector. The feedback from our apprentices reflects on the successful outcomes of all our apprenticeships, with every one of them achieving success and progressing onto employment or further education upon completion. The assessors/tutors always go the extra mile and treat every apprentice as an individual happily adjusting both delivery and support to ensure the best possible results are achieved in line with learners needs. Thank you for helping us upskills our workforce and ensuring we have the right skills in the right place to meet both current and future needs”.

The Zone (a Support and Information Service for 13 – 25 year olds) started to work with (Plymouth Training and Consultancy Ltd ) in Sept 2014 to deliver four Youth Work apprenticeships, within a Financial Confidence Programme funded by the Big Lottery.

It has been a pleasure to work alongside dedicated training provider who specialises in supporting the apprentices through Level 2 & Level 3 Youth Work enabling the development of young people within the youth work sector.

Our apprentices completed both level 2 & 3 with successful outcomes, three of our apprenticeships, into full time employment. Two of which are still within the project.

I would just like to say that the time and effort that was dedicated to the apprentices was about meeting their needs and learning styles which has enabled them to develop as competence professional within the sector of Children, Young People, Adults and Families.

As a result of such exceptional training & assessing we have continued to work with Plymouth Training & Consultancy, by taking the offer of work based apprenticeships in Leadership & Management(ILM)

Many thanks for supporting our work within the Voluntary Sector, enabling this sector to upskill our professional workforce in an every changing landscape of funding. You have enabled us to create learning opportunities that would have been out of our reach if funding was required.

I had a fantastic learning experience with Linda and Plymouth Training and Consultancy. They helped me gain the qualifications that I needed to teach and grew my passion for education even further. The opportunity to learn in the evenings allowed me to gain the skills required, whilst not impacting on my full-time job. Learning was flexible and made fun, with a truly learner-centred approach to the course. The trainer’s knowledge and enthusiasm made the whole experience enjoyable and has set me up with the skills and desire to succeed within the education sector. I can’t thank Linda enough for all the support I received and for helping me gain my Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training

I enrolled on a leadership and management course last year. I was incredibly nervous as I haven’t done any form of education for 20 years. All my worries were really quickly dispersed. The teaching methods have really suited my way of learning and the support has been faultless. The confidence it has given me has meant I will also be completing a teaching course in the near future. It has really changed my life and feel confident that I will complete the courses and have the qualifications I need to progress in the future.

I have had fantastic support and guidance throughout the four years I have been studying with Plymouth Training and Consultancy.

I have loved learning with Plymouth Training and Consultancy. It is definitely one of the best learning experiences I have had the privilege of undertaking. They provided outstanding support throughout my learning journey, not only by providing me with the tools to gain my level 5 diploma in education and training, but also helping me to build on my confidence as a teaching professional.
