After changing career I was anxious about starting a new course, but People 1st made me feel confident and comfortable. They have encouraged me and provided constant support when I have needed it through my Level 2 and my Level 3 qualifications. They provide the best training and I don’t think I would have been able to complete my qualifications, if it wasn’t for the support they offered me. I will hopefully go on to do more qualifications with People 1st in the future.

I’ve just completed my Level 5 Management course with People 1st. I can’t thank them enough for all the help and support I received, from not only my tutor Amanda, but the organisation as a whole. My classes were always well structured and I felt I could ask for help and guidance whenever I needed it. People 1st have helped me take that next step in my career and I will always be eternally grateful.

Thank you to People 1st and to Caroline Bell for an excellent and informative Assessors Course. From day one, I felt Caroline was there to support me in every way. At times when life got in the way, there was always a check in and she was there to assist with ongoing assignments. The visits and personal discussions were done with a warm welcome and I was at ease completing these which ultimately lead me to successfully completing the course. I am delighted to now be a qualified assessor, thanks to the support of People 1st. I cannot l wait to help and support many other students on their journeys with their own careers.
