I feel as though I have grown in confidence since starting with PA Training. The support I received from everyone was amazing! The one to one meetings were very helpful, don’t be afraid to ask for extra support if you need it!
Gaining my qualification has helped me with my confidence and has allowed me to be able to do my job with ease. The knowledge I’ve learned through PA Training is valuable and I’ve learned new thing’s daily.
I’m so glad I got to do my apprenticeship through PA Training. PA training not only helped me gain the knowledge I need to be the best nursery practitioner I can be but also helped me grow in confidence as an individual in my workplace. Knowing that everyone at PA training would always be there to answer any questions helped me push myself to be the best I can be as I knew I always had the best support behind me. During my modern apprenticeship, I always had access to great resources provided by PA training which made completing the work a lot easier to do and I know I always have them to look back on if I ever need to refresh my knowledge.
We have had the pleasure of working with PA training for a long time now and have always felt supported by Amanda and her team. They have helped select and interview the right candidates to fit our nurseries and helped develop the individuals into successful practitioners. Could not recommend them highly enough.
Having worked with PA Training for many years, I have found their level of mentoring and training to be of the highest standard – delivered in a professional, flexible and courteous manner.
I would highly recommend the services of PA training. They are leaders in their field.
Brighton Nursery has worked with PA Training for several years and we highly recommend Amanda and her professional team of assessors. Our staff give excellent feedback after attending workshops or 1:1 tutorials. One of our staff liked that she could work independently at her own pace while other staff really value being able to access support whenever they need help. Tutors are flexible, supportive and a credit to early years training.
With the support from PA Training and my setting I was given the right support to go ahead and do my SVQ qualification. I had previously been told by another provider that I wouldn’t succeed on the course. I have made good relationships with the children and families I also feel like I was supported by a good team within my setting as well as the support I was given by PA Training. The one-to-one support I was given from my assessor was amazing and the extra meetings I was given to get work completed in time was also very helpful. PA training were very flexible and supportive to my support needs. The qualification has giving me to confidence to be where I am now in my job and a valued member of the team.
When I started this job working in a nursery I felt I’d found the perfect job for me. Although childcare isn’t for everyone, I feel like I’ve found something I love to do. I wake up every day excited to go into work, I’ve made some amazing relationships with children and their families, and I feel like a respected member of a team, which for me personally are all amazing feelings! I also feel that I am a positive male role model for children.
The support I have received from PA Training has been excellent. PA Training have been very flexible and supported my individual learning needs very well. They have always done what’s best for me and the way I learn for example through regular face-to-face meetings with my assessor. I am grateful for the ongoing support. The qualification has helped me to gain more confidence and begin to understand the link between theory and practice.
