I am amazed how enjoyable it’s been and how much I’ve learnt. I felt I didn’t know enough with a previous qualification alone and I feel so much more confident to teach a class now.

I was extremely happy with the service I was provided here. My tutor, Michelle was very welcoming and approachable. I felt she was always at hand to discuss anything I was unsure on.
Since completing my training and gaining the qualification I have gone on to open my own Training Academy within my salon. I’m delighted that I am putting my qualification in to use and all my hard work gaining them has paid off.
After the course I felt like I was more than ready to teach in my chosen area, and with each course I teach I can feel my confidence growing.

I have enjoyed everything about the course. When I first started I wanted to give in, but the other students and tutor helped me to carry on. I am overwhelmed at how far I have come and what I have learned. It was good that we could do our work experience in the Chill Out Training and the tutor for my work experience was very helpful with my Assessors folder and Cert Ed work. Michelle has been very helpful and helped us throughout the course. I am feeling more confident now after completing our micro-teaching to go out and teach others. The whole experience has been excellent and sad for it to end.

I liked the fact that I could do all my work experience here and Chill Out was here to assist with everything from any concerns to all resources needed. I felt that it has enabled me to have more confidence in my whole vocation as well as teaching. Michelle is very knowledgeable so helps develop my confidence.

I thought the length of time between sessions gave plenty of time to complete each assignment. The practical sessions (micro-teach and theorist) were fun to do and not as worrying to do as I first thought. Michelle, the tutor, was very knowledgeable and made the work seem more simple than it actually was. All support was there and I felt I learned so much in each session. My confidence has grown as a tutor and I am fortunate enough to have been able to gain experience throughout studying which has been a big help in my understanding. The course as a whole was well structured with plenty of time to prepare for each session.

I’ve really enjoyed learning a lot about myself on the course and how to become more confident. Michelle has been an amazing teacher and even though she has been honest with constructive feedback she has been professional and praised when deserved. I really am grateful to be able to complete my work experience at the Academy as it might’ve got confusing doing work in a college and getting work assessors on a different placement. Life has been a lot easier.

Michelle was a great tutor, very attentive, always happy to help if needed and made us feel very settled from day one. I have enjoyed this course. All the students on it have made it as enjoyable as Michelle has teaching it. I feel I’ve learnt a lot and feel confident going forward.
