What students say...

“My life has changed dramatically since being on this course. I have been exposed to opportunities and have been doing positive stuff for myself as well. This course helped me identify my goals and a career. I’m strong and happy.” 


"The environment is very friendly which has given me confidence to undertake other challenges that I would undergo for my future. Everyone has been very supportive it has been enjoyable."


"The encouragement and support from the tutors has been really great for me. While here I have regained my self esteem and confidence that I lost by being at home. I have been given knowledge and skills to go towards a chosen career path. I have also met and made new friends in a situation similar to mine."


"The things I have enjoyed most about my experience is gaining more confidence to go ahead and achieve. I've found that I have learnt so much and has given me the confidence to move onwards and upwards. Without the help of my tutor and my new found friends I would still be at home not continuing any further adult education. Thumbs up to everyone at Training For you."


"Training For You is an excellent service for all those who need any kind of learning support. I highly recommend anybody who needs support to register at Training For You."
