Amanda McDougall – My first day on the course, I felt like a fish out of water. I was not ever going to be able to complete the course. I was so out of my comfort zone. Rebecca reassured me and I felt more relaxed and I ended up really enjoying this course due to Rebecca’s support, encouragement, professionalism and patience. Thanks so much for all your help Rebecca.
Desmond Bushe – I came on this course and was not sure how I would get on with the learning, with it being so intense. I was also worried about being around new people for a week. But as the week progressed and with Rebecca’s guidance I became more comfortable and feel I have grown in confidence a great deal and this should have a great impact on my role of trainer when back at work.

Ian Fallen – Rebecca made us feel so comfortable and the course was delivered fantastically both times I was present. Due to personal reasons I had to leave during the first course at Stansted but Rebecca welcomed me back on this course to complete the final two days including my micro teach. Thoroughly enjoyed the course.

Richard Weeks – A very enjoyable course ran by a very knowledgeable person in Rebecca Hodgson. I have gained an incredible amount of knowledge from her great teaching methods. Has been a pleasure!
Matthew Shaughnessy – Thoroughly enjoyed the course from start to finish. The course has contained some helpful ways to teach which I will definitely be taking into my new role of Ramp Online Trainer at Bristol. Rebecca has been a fantastic tutor, adjusting her lessons to suit different levels of ability. She has been very supportive throughout and can’t thank her enough for her guidance she has given us.
Deborah Perry – I have absolutely loved this course. I found it interesting, informative and sometimes challenging. Lots of information given and fantastic group involvement. Sometimes fun and sometimes intense. Rebecca has a lot of knowledge in this course. Any questions that were asked she would always have the answer immediately. She made the group feel totally at ease and took into account the needs of everyone involved.

"The course was very enjoyable and involved the whole class. It was interesting allowed us to plan everything easier. It was a bit nerve wracking at first but Rebecca the teacher made us all feel very relaxed and comfortable. When we were all told we had to do a micro-teach we were all very nervous but when we actually did them on our own and selected a topic everyone enjoyed them. The whole course has been enjoyable and I have learnt a lot different subjects from the micro-teach that everyone did. Rebecca was amazing!"
Linda Hayter – Swissport
"Very enjoyable course. Enjoyed the icebreakers and the energisers, was a great thing to do at the start of the day to break up the long day up from the intense learning. Rebecca is a great teacher, taught me a lot of things in such a short space of time. She was very patient with my nerves at the start of the course, but with her skills brought me out of my shell. I feel so much more confident about myself now. Will miss Rebecca"

L3 Award in Education & Training
I found the whole 5 days very informative and interesting, and since, I have really started to look at the training and assessment process in a different way.
It has really helped, and I think it has improved my ability as a trainer.
I have been training different courses almost none stop since March and the two I did for our new starts had very positive feedback from the management and other members of staff to how well the new ones are doing.
"I found the level three education and training course hard work and very challenging! However, our trainer Rebecca was tremendously supportive and motivational. Rebecca is an inspirational teacher who encouraged us all to dig deep and maximise our skills and realise our full potential."
Thanks again Rebecca.
Quite recently I was asked to forward my CV to be put on a list of possible service providers. I thought that this would be a very simple task. But after doing much searching through my hard-drive, I finally found my CV, embarrassingly out of date. Yes, I update my LinkedIn profile on a regular basis, but I’d long overlooked my CV and had actually forgotten that they are still required in business.
Thankfully, I had a rather serendipitous meeting with Rebecca at an event, and she mentioned that one of her specialities was putting together successful CVs. I was eager for some guidance and advice, so booked a session with her. We met over a coffee where she was able to give me hints and tips about what to put in the CV - and what to avoid.
She advised about how things had changed in recent years and explained that you should have different types of CVs for different requirements. So a CV for employment, for example, should highlight different things to one for a tendering process. It’s not a ‘one size fits all’.
Over the two hours of our meeting, Rebecca asked me lots of questions about my skills and experience, in order to make sure that she really captured what I’m about and what I have to offer. By nature, I’m not comfortable shouting about my achievements, so it was very helpful to sit with her and bounce ideas around and really focus on my strengths - strengths that I might otherwise have overlooked.
Rebecca is knowledgeable, approachable, encouraging and enjoyable to work with. I left our meeting feeling very positive and already have a hugely improved CV that I can be proud of. I’m also looking forward to working on a second version for other aspects of my career.
I would highly recommend Rebecca!

Rebecca help me in a great way to gather all my information on my cv and set it out to look more professional in order for me to apply for future jobs and extend my carer or even look at a new challenge. She allowed for me to see how the qualifications and training I have had and received will help me to further myself and how I should be willing to show it.

I have known Rebecca now for a number of years both personally and professionally and am happy to recommend her to potential new businesses. Rebecca has a wide range of skills including very good communication, organisational, event management, training and project management skills whilst also having a broad knowledge and understanding of the needs of business. Rebecca has always been very keen to expand her own personal development and qualifications in order to ensure she has flexible and generic skills that can be offered to any business. Rebecca is trustworthy, professional, hardworking and committed and I would not have any problems recommending her to potential new businesses.

On line learner through Vision 2 learn – studied L2 in Business Administration
I have passed the course and thanks for your guidance for completing the course.
After a long time I am writing to you.
I need your help and support.
I am holding an engineering degree (Electronics and Communication) from a very reputed college in India and having almost 6 Years of IT Industry experience.
As I am not finding a suitable job opening in the UK so I thought I would pursue higher studies in Information Science.
For applying to the universities I need one academic reference.
As you were my mentor/supervisor could you be my referee.
Rebecca provided a reference about my academic ability along with deadline expectations for submitting assessments. You don't know Rebecca how you helped me or I would say saved me from going back to India to collect just a reference letter.
