Feedback from some of our Learners

  • Keith Hetherington from Cubby Construction said: "I enjoyed doing the NVQ, there was a lot more work involved than i expected. The things I learnt/do different are I record a lot more i.e. morning briefs, site meetings/discussions with the site team. I also plan better doing a weekly and a four weekly programme weekly to book plant and resources earlier and pass them to the senior management. I also started to follow up phone calls with clients/designers with emails".  

  • Damian Benson from Leck Construction said: 'The NVQ programme has helped me write more detailed RAMS and better prepare for site audits which, in turn has resulted in us getting good feedback from our client (BAE). I have also learned more about dimensional control aspects of the job ie drawings and alterations'.  

  • Gareth Daniel from West Coast Thermal said: "the nvq went really well with Gary (Assessor). We kept in touch every week or so through phone calls and whatsapp etc, I sent Gary plenty of videos and pictures of jobs I've been doing for the past few months for evidence. He come to see me on crown packaging and we got plenty of work done even though it was a strict factory to work in. All in all really happy doing the nvq with Gary and don't think it could have gone much better, cheers". .

  • Mark Richardson from West Coast Thermal "The NVQ programme in passive fire protection helped me and I now take more time to understand the materials used and how they perform". .

  • Dan Whirity from Burlington Stone said: "Since doing the nvq courses I have been more aware of all the safety procedures and follow them more closely. I have been more open minded and listening more to what the work force has to say. I feel as a deputy manager I have grown and that should help the company as I progress" .

  • Sue Richardson, Director of Lanquest Properties Ltd said: "Just wanted to say thank you for organising last Friday. The lads really felt they had benefitted from the day and had enjoyed it".

  • "There was a lot of useful information taken away from this 2 day course. I feel I have much more knowledge of scaffolding and safety." Liam Aplin - Site Manager at Thomas Armstrong Attended Scaffold Inspection for Supervisors

  • "The most important thing I learned on the course was how to survive in an emergency scenario. I will certainly use the correct equipment and follow RAMS more closely when entering confined spaces at work" Darren Ash – Waitings Ltd Attended a Safe Working in Confined Spaces (Medium Risk) course – February 2021
