We have worked with many hundreds of learners and employers through the years and here is a small selection of the feedback we have received about the service we provide.
I had a job within 6 days – you get to learn more than just being ‘on the job'.
Excellent support and the chance to broaden my horizons as a prospective worker
I was looking to gain a recognised teaching qualification and thought that this was a very good level entry qualification to work towards. The onsite sessions were brilliant as our tutor was very knowledgeable and engaging. The course was spread out over a 7-8 week period which gave me plenty of time to complete the work which was always assessed promptly, fairly and areas that needed correcting clearly raised. This is the second course that I have completed with Nichola at Crown and I have always found her to be friendly, professional and encouraging. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Crown Vocational Training for well-structured training by knowledgeable and positive tutors.
Working with Crown Vocational Training has been a great experience, learning on the job in management has opened my eyes to a whole new world of opportunity! I have been supported since walking through the door all the way till the end by my tutor, the whole course was well structured making course submissions easily achievable in an already busy working lifestyle.
I would like to thank Nichola and all the Crown VT staff for making the learning experience less stressful and so worthwhile, gaining the management qualification will be valuable to my job role. I would recommend Crown VT to anyone seeking professional business qualifications and will myself be returning in the future for the higher management courses.
I am 6 months into the Business Professional Administration Level 4 course and I am really enjoying it. The topics covered are varied and relevant to real businesses so I feel I am learning a lot of important and useful information. The support I receive from my NVQ assessor is brilliant. She is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and I feel very comfortable to go to her for help when needed. There is a lot of work involved so the course does require dedication and time however I definitely feel it is worth it.
I undertook the Team Leader Apprenticeship to help me develop my skills and knowledge, as this was a new role with new challenges that I had minimal experience of handling. I enrolled on the programme and can't believe just what I have learned and the confidence I have gained. The course and tutors have way exceeded what I had expected. I was thinking I would just have a certificate at the end to show what I had achieved not realising how this was going to make me grow and be more assertive in my work life, home life and social life. I can honestly say I am a much better Team Leader as a result of my course.
I have now completed my NAEA qualification and I would like to say that Claire Barry has been an outstanding teacher in my opinion. She is always helpful, cheerful and supportive. To have to learn new things sometimes makes things a drag but, with her, it never was. All I wanted to do is complete my apprenticeship and she was always there for me.
Since undertaking the team leadership qualification, our apprentice has taken immense pressure off of myself and brought lots of new ideas and energy to the salon. The hair industry is continually changing and facing new challenges and our apprentice looks to adapt and capitalise on these opportunities in order to promote team harmony and happy clients ........... doing this qualification highlights that age shouldn’t be a factor for anyone to stop learning and improving themselves. Her achievements have not only developed herself but will also motivate others
We contacted Sophie Chowdhury to discuss the apprenticeship position we had available and the profile of the candidate we wished to interview. Sophie reacted swiftly. She was able to supply us with the CVs of several potential apprentices and interviews were set up quickly. The profile of the candidates fitted so well that we decided to take two apprentices from Crown Vocational Training and we are very pleased with their progress.
Sophie listened carefully to our requirements and only put forward appropriate candidates. The mentoring that Crown supply to back up the placement and support the apprentice is also very good. The mentor visits the offices/the apprentice regularly – but her presence does not interfere with the office or the flow of work that the apprentice is undertaking in any way. We are very pleased with the service that Sophie and her colleagues have provided.
It’s been a pleasure dealing with Crown Vocational Training, from start to finish.
Our need for an apprentice was last minute, and urgent, and from contacting them, to having CV’s to consider, all happened within a couple of days.
They had clearly listened carefully to the brief, as all the CV’s matched our requirements, and having interviewed applicants the following week it was apparent that all interviewees were capable of fulfilling the role.
Our apprentice subsequently joined us at the beginning of February, just two weeks after contacting Crown, and has proved an invaluable resource to our business. The process was efficient, simple, and I would have absolutely no hesitation in using Crown Vocational training again, or recommending them to others.
They found the perfect candidate for the job in the time specified
