Not long completed my Diploma in business management with SMART. Throughout the whole time I was very well supported and a special thank you has to go out to my assessor, Hazel Mckinlay. Her professionalism and dedication ensured my experience was not only productive but enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this company to my friends.

Health and social care level 2
My apprenticeship means everything to me as it is the start of my future. It’s the beginning of my career and the footprint for future prospects and opportunities.
TLM Laser Ltd
I believe SMART has helped me develop my career and since starting my first course 5 years ago, I have received 3 different promotions within the company I currently work for. I feel SMART has helped me learn more about my role/s than I would have learned on my own.
When I was at school, I completed my A Levels and did not obtain very good grades. By completing SMART courses, I gained qualifications I never thought I would get and I received a fresh opportunity to broaden my knowledge and skills and become more desirable to other employers. I did not think I would get that chance again after leaving school.
I have worked with 3 different Training Advisors at SMART and I can say they were all extremely helpful, friendly and approachable. They made me feel confident and comfortable in completing my courses and were very supportive throughout. I could not have asked for a better service from SMART.
I would definitely recommend SMART to anyone – they are a fantastic training provider and the skills you receive from completing courses are invaluable.
I have also been impressed with the aftercare / follow up by Hazel McKinlay at Smart, she regularly visits our Apprentices to ensure they are on target to achieve the best that they can in the workplace.
Acumen Waste Services
I have already completed my Customer Service Level 2 and working towards Level 3. This is so I can better myself and my understanding of the business. I’m hoping it will make me a better Manager when I do complete my development programme and set me up for further progression.

From discovering Smart to this very day my whole experience has been wonderful and certainly didn’t feel like I was going back to school like I thought it would. I have just undertaken a Level 3 in Business Administration and have learnt so much more than ‘just a course’. I have learnt about internal observance days, Government publications that my employer has never mentioned and I actually understood topics that have previously baffled me. My Tutor Pippa is the most amazing, genuine and kind person and has been a pleasure to work with but has been really good at keeping me on track and pushing me where I needed it, including taking on an additional qualification.

My Assessor was Debby Seiles, she has been an amazing help. Debby was very patient with me when I was unsure of something and I was able to text/email/phone her if I had any queries and she would always reply promptly. She explained everything to me in detail and gave me extensive, constructive feedback after every task that I completed. I will miss her monthly visits!
I’m very grateful that my company recognises the benefit of a Smart Training and Recruitment course, it has really helped me professionally and personally. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!
