We love receiving feedback from our Learners. We are proud of our Training Advisor Lindsey who was praised by a recent achiever, Ben Gilbert

I would like to pass on some feedback in relation to my recently completed Level 4 in Management but mostly in relation to my Training Advisor Lindsey.

I just want to say that without Lindsey having taken over and offering me the support she did, having an open door and being available to me at any time, I probably wouldn’t have completed the qualification.

You’ll be well aware how much I was falling behind I imagine and up until about two months ago I’d made very little real progress.

Lindsey then came on board and quickly realised and got to grips with my preferred learning style and how difficult I was finding it to get my answers down in writing in order to complete the workbooks.

As a result, we did a great deal of the work verbally (so much so that my wife would joke about my regular meetings, within her words, “your oral lady”!) and I’m sure Lindsey will say that this made a big difference! That said even with the inroads we were making, in early August I sent her an email stressing out that we were running short of time, that the volume of work needed to be done was a major concern and that it was probably best I terminate my place. I just couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Once again Lindsey to the rescue. In the span of one short conversation, she put everything into perspective for me, helped me break things down into smaller chunks and helped me set a weekly goal that would ensure the qualification was done on time so long as I stuck to that goal.

This worked a treat and was a major booster to my morale and belief in my ability to complete. And complete I did!

Lindsey has been lovely to work with, always professional but kind and approachable, she’s a credit to you and the company. I can’t stress enough that I firmly believe if she hadn’t have swooped in when she did, then I’d have probably not gained the qualification and wasted so much of my time and the time of yourselves.

Congratulations to our recent achievers

One of the biggest changes in the new Apprenticeship reforms is the inclusion of End-point assessment. All Apprentices on a new Apprenticeship standard now have to complete and End-point assessment (EPA) to complete their qualification, as opposed to the Apprenticeship (SASE) frameworks where assessment took place throughout.

With our high-quality delivery of teaching and learning, we prepare our Apprentices for their End Point Assessment.   

Congratulations to all our Apprentices who have passed through end-point assessment. We hope your apprenticeship signifies the start of a successful career and wish you all the best of luck in your endeavours.

We are so proud to announce that Ash Cuttress & Debby Seiles have been nominated for Inspirational Women on the Year 2019.  We had a catch up with Debby and Ash to ask for their feedback on their nomination.

Such Inspirational Women!

Debby Seiles commented

“I am so pleased to have been nominated for the Inspirational Women award, having been with Smart Training and Recruitment for just over four years, it is nice to be recognised for my work with learners and colleagues.

Over the past year, we have seen a shift from frameworks to standards, and this along with the upcoming reforms to functional skills has seen some challenges in the business as we get to grips with the changes and taking the fear of EPA from the learners.

Having worked in hospitality management for years, it is such a pleasure to work alongside the learners at all different levels and see them build on their skills and develop both personally and professionally and be able to progress up the career ladder.

Without the support of the managers and other TAs in the business, I would not have been able to achieve this.”

Ash Cutress also commented on being nominated;

“It is great to be recognised and exciting to have opportunity to network with other inspirational women (and men!) who are involved with  Apprenticeship delivery as this will continue to highlight and promote the immense benefits work-based learning has, not only for individuals but for businesses too. Working in such a dynamic industry for the past 11 years has been truly rewarding as I have seen so many apprentices’ achieve their qualifications, progress in their chosen careers and add value to the businesses they work in.”

We wish both of them good luck for the award!
