 From Learners

 “I have just completed two Level Five qualifications on Leadership and Management with Liz Pattinson of Pattinson and Milburn Training Limited. Liz’s dedication and enthusiasm to learning and training is apparent from our first meeting. Throughout the two-year course, Liz visited my place of work on regular occasions to tutor me on course topics and her knowledge and experience was endless. Her guidance and training did not end there; she was always contactable by phone or email if I struggled with topics. Liz’s teaching style made hard topics seem easy by the way she incorporated examples of my job role as a way of helping me to understand the topic.; an example of this was Strategic Decision making which, I thought was always made by high level executives etc.; but Liz told me that I make strategic decisions every day in my job role as a Supervisor”

Vicky Best was my assessor when I did my Level 3 Health and Social Care. She was very helpful explaining everything I needed to know and making sure that I understood. This has lead me to complete and achieve my qualification. I have gone on to do lots of different things and I’m doing my access to nursing and aiming to carry on at University and become a nurse. This would never have been possible without Vicky’s help.”

Vicky was a really good assessor with very good experience which helped me in my job role as a nurse assistant. The qualification has helped me gain skills which has made me more confidant within my job role. Vicky is excellent at her job role and very experienced.”
