Great course and was perfect for me to do in my own time with 2 young children. Only had to email or phone if I was stuck with anything and they were very helpful. Would definitely recommend
I came across this course and decided to go for it and I am so glad I did and have now completed. I have had a wonderful learning experience and a brilliant mentor, Emma Timey and other support from Annalise, Keri with all my questions and queries and not to mention Scott. I would gladly recommend The Learning College.
I have just completed and passed my CACHE level 3 in STLS and have really enjoyed this course. The tutors are always on hand with support and advice. I chose it for me as i have 4 children and i could complete the coursework around them. It has been hard work but utterly satisfying. Thank you learning college!
I was so excited to start the course and everything was sent to me straight away and I found the site it was all on easy to use. I found the information that I had been sent a little overwhelming at first but after a few emails and calls to the tutors it was all clearly explained. The course took longer than I hoped it would (mainly due to me working a full time job) but it was quick and easy to sort out an extension. I am now just waiting for my certificate!! I have really enjoyed challenging myself to complete the course and have learnt so much – thank you to all the tutors
I found the whole process quite straight forward, I finished the course on approx 9 months. And I had tutor support if needed but with the podcasts and doing my own research I was confident enough to complete the course. Would defiantly do another course through the learning college.
Really helpful and supportive through out
Excellent experience with The Learning College. My tutor was amazing and was really quick in answering any queries I had. The college staff was so helpful and guided me in the right direction. I will definitely be doing another course with them in the future.
I have found the learning college to be helpful at time and always return my calls and emails.
Friendly tutors always at the end of the phone to help. Informative course structure i really enjoyed it.
The study material I did not feel was in depth enough to answer the questions and would have been better if students were directed towards various guide books available online or provided a paperback study book. In saying that my tutor was brilliant and gave positive feedback pushing me all the way to achieve highest mark. Tutor also had various email and telephone conversations to support me. If I was to do the course again I would have purchased CACHE Lv3 book available from various outlets which would have given the in depth information needed.
I have enjoyed doing this course & have received any help & support that i have needed. Thankyou very much 😀
Thank you the learning college for all your help with my qualification and giving me the opportunity to gain my qualification, it wasn’t easy, but so worthwhile!!
The tutors and staff at the college were very good and supporting to work with. And they helped me a lot.
I reviewed many online study packages prior to choosing The Learning College. The advisor on the telephone (Paul) was fully comprehensive and very friendly which led me to take up the course. Once having started the course, there was always e-mail contact with a tutor who was extremely helpful and quick in responding. Can not rate this college highly enough.
I have really enjoyed studying this course. My tutor has been so supportive and really helped me along. If ever I’ve needed to contact her she has been absolutely brilliant at getting back to me in no time at all! Only negative I have is that my course changed it’s processes half way through. I’m led to believe this was out of The Learning College’s hands as the assessment criteria requirements had changed. It was stressful, especially as I was running close to my deadline, however, I cannot fault the college support and help in advising me of the new process. I took this course on whilst on maternity leave from my pharmaceutical career and have really enjoyed expanding my educational knowledge. Thanks to everyone, but particularly my tutor, Emma!
The invidulator that my work was assessed by was fantastic. Emma offered all the advice and support that I needed and was able.to offer me full assistance in any ammendments that I had to make. Emma was lovely to speak to on the phone and was quick in replying to emails. She was the best advice/support out of anyone who me I had contacted in the duration of the course and can’t thank her enough.
I really enjoyed this course, my tutor and assessor were really helpful and responded quickly.
I was worried about doing an online course as I haven’t studied since my school years but the ease of the whole thing surprised me. Support is there through the whole process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the learning college to anyone as they really do provide a 5 star service!
The course wa very enjoyable and the handouts and homework were easy to follow. The only disappointing thing with the college was the changing of assessment methods which they did twice during my course. I found submitting the full unit online was the easiest method. Work was assessed quickly with appropriate feedback given which was very helpful.
Thank you for your kind review. We would like to apologise if you found the change in assessment frustrating. Based on learner surveys we decided to change the process to suit what we were being asked for only to find that learners did in actual fact prefer the full unit submission as you stated in your comments Alex. We strive to please as many learners as possible and are focused as a college to be the ‘peoples’ college where all feedback is greatly received. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your qualification aside from the assessment process not being satisfactory to you.
Very good overall service, lovely prompt, friendly, helpful staff when I called.
I had a full problems when I first enrolled on a course… I enrolled on the wrong 1!!! I called the college straight away and a guy fixed the issue and enrolled me on the correct course straight away. I found the course to be ready to follow though challenging at times! The tutor was amazing always available by email whenever I needed her and very prompt with making my assignments! Overall an amazing experience, I have now completed my course and cannot thank the learning college enough!!!
Excellent course, lots of help available when needed. Would highly recommend this course to other interested parties.
Cache Level 3 course – great online way to complete a recognised qualification. Easy to use and great support
Thank you the learning college for all your help with my qualification and giving me the opportunity to gain my qualification
I am very satisfied with that course, all help provided from the tutor (Emma)Thank you.
I think the learning college is a great way to gain new qualifications in your own time. They offer support and guidance thought out the full course and are always happy to help.
Couldn’t fault this course or my assessor Emma. She’s been so so helpful throughout my course,phoning me when I’ve had issues, replying promptly to my emails and even messaging me on her days off to help me. I’d recommend the learning college to anyone, so glad I’ve done this course.
Really enjoyed this course. Podcasts and all the handouts provide you with a lot of information needed that you need to complete this course. that are give. Tutors very helpful when you have question and feedback is very informative. Assessor assessed the work promptly.
Great course. I learnt a lot. I would definitely recommend it.
Very good course, interesting Podcasts, very helpful customer service and prompt reply to e-mails. The formative assessments probably too general and when it came to submitting the portfolio some points were missing (luckily there was an opportunity to make the corrections).
This has been a great course – I have studied while working full time and found the layout of the modules and submission easy to follow – everybody at the Learning College very supportive and helpful – Thanks
Studying this course at the Learning College online was by far the best decision I made during my gap year (after college). I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to study as well as work during my gap year because I thought it would be stressful. However, I am glad I chose to do both. I managed to complete it in just 8 months! I am very thankful and grateful for the ongoing support that I received. Looking forward to starting university in September now with this extra qualification! 🙂
This was my first time doing an online course. I found it to be a rewarding experience but did have a few testy moments. I do think the deadline due date could be a bit longer than 8 months. One of the other issues I had was that the college did not make it clear of the amount of words I could write for each answer. I tried to stick to the given word count for each answer but was told afterwards that those numbers were just a guideline as to the minimum number of words to be written. I did not realise this. Other than that I found the course to be smooth sailing & got a lot out of it. I was in touch with the college by phone a few times and found the staff to be courteous & helpful. I would not hesitate in recommending The Learning College to anyone interested in doing an online course. Thank you.
I have thoroughly enjoyed studying this course and have learnt a lot from it. Tutors have been very quick at responding and providing feedback. I did have a few problems when the marking was changed and I had to move all of my work onto a different document as I had almost completed the course when these changes occurred. However, I enjoyed the course overall.
I started this course with a view to gaining work in schools as a teaching assistant and was fortunate to land a job while I was doing the course. My experiences in school have helped me to complete the course while using some situations as examples. Great course if you are thinking of working in school. I enjoyed the course and learned loads. I would recommend it.
Very hard but interesting course, well worth completing though!!
The process was easy. The course was brilliant and the response time from the tutor was excellent. The only thing stopping me from review this with 5 * is the fact that after i had submitted my portfolio, I was made aware that I hadn’t met several of the criteria, meaning the formative assessments weren’t enough and I had missed bits of work out. Luckily I had time to correct the work but it left me a little annoyed.
They were very helpful and I couldn’t of done it without their fast response emails!!! It is very easy to follow and the podcasts are a great help. The online chat option is very useful too!
Thank you Learning College for providing me with the support to complete my qualification. I was happy with how quickly my tutor got back to me with feedback and for the final review process of my portfolio. The online podcasts were useful and I found it very easy to navigate around my account to find the information I needed to complete each module and question. The feedback was straight forward and easy to understand, although at times it seemed a little brief and on occassions ambiguous. Nevertheless I still remain very happy with the support given. Thank you again!
Excellent support from staff especially Emma😃 Always there to lend a helping hand work was marked prompt and sent back thank you
Every person who works or plans to have a future in the educational system should take this course, not only for the certificate, but firstly, for their own experience and knowledge. The materials provided are very clearly explained , the course is really well structured and the homeworks and research tasks go straight to the point ,so that the student can acquire the most important and essential information, so necessary when working with children and adults within an educational establishment. The tutors are very supportive and considerate , available at all time and keen to modelate the student’s work and knowledge. Thank you Learning College for helping me to improve and consolidate my development!
I found the videos informative and also amusing (in that they weren’t just loads of information but also human and interesting). Sometimes I found there was repetition in the questions particularly with the research tasks. Perhaps research tasks should be done first and then the questions are answered on the back of the research done. It would be better to conclude each unit properly and get it signed off before moving on to the next one as getting corrections 6 months later is a little unsettling, particularly when they have been checked by the tutor who said everything was fine. However, overall, a well structured course, good video information and easy to follow. thank you
I finally completed my level 3 support teaching and learning! So happy i used the learning college to do this course, i was able to do it in my own time and have continuous support. A big thank you to my tutor Clair and assessor Emma for all the help & support 😀
Really enjoyed this course and would highly recommend the college
Help was provided when I asked and it was thorough.
Tutors are absolutely brilliant in supporting you throughout your course my only critique and why I couldn’t give a 5 is that I felt a few of the questions were repetitive. Stilly highly recommend.
The course is full on especially doing it from home, but it is well worth every bit. The Assessor marked my work and contacted me straight away with what I needed to amend enjoyed studying with the learning college
Excellent, very informative feedback when asked for and great help in general. I was put off doing it at first with it being an online course and not having someone there physically to help but this method is great. The tutors are quick to respond and help you as much as possible.
A fantastic way to study. Podcasts great, tutors great and assessors great. Being able to study at your own pace and receiving feedback if you need to add or reaffirm certain parts. If you put the work in it pays off!! Thank you to all.
I loved this course. Once the format is grasped (as it’s all online or via pen drive) it’s so easy to navigate and get involved with the course content. The tutor throughout the course is easy to understand and guides you through the course at your own pace and your tutors you send work to are superb and get back to you in no time at all. Following this course, I have been successful in becoming a full time teaching assistant within a primary school setting. Thanks
The service I received from start to finish was world class, I never encountered any issues from any department. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to gain their qualifications! Superb company, keep up the good work!
Hi Emma, You are an angel! Thank you so much, I would like the certificate to state the name as : Danielle Burgess. Throughout the time of my course your help and support have been outstanding, please advise your line manager or equivalent as I always like to recognise outstanding service. Everything I have asked or needed has received your full attention making the process so easy, which is much appreciated as I am a full time mum as well as a student teacher now! Thank you again, Danielle
I really enjoyed my course and found it very interesting. Kerri was a fantastic help to me when I had problems with administration. My assessor, Emma, was also a great help. A few negatives though, unfortunately…Once I had sent my portfolio I did not receive any confirmation of it being received…so had to chase this up. Then I was accused of not sending all the paperwork when I had clearly sent it all. I had to make a formal complaint against a member of the learning college admin team over this. This wasted over 3 weeks which was really disappointing as I was hoping to apply to TA jobs to start after easter. I am slightly confused why it was suggested to send each homework off for feedback…making small changes and getting it ok’d by my tutor….then once I sent my whole portfolio off my assessor said I needed to amend 33 questions! I’m not sure why this couldn’t have been brought up by my tutor in the first place? One last little moan is that the certification fee was not brought up beforehand. I wasn’t expecting to pay extra for this once I had completed my course? I am glad I have completed this course online and apart from the negatives above, it was a good way to gain a qualification in my own time. I cracked on and completed it in 4 months. Thank you Kerri and Emma.
Can the Manager of Scott Cooper (unsure of Scott’s dept) be made aware that I found that if I had to give a customer experience score of the interaction I had with him this morning on the telephone, it would be 10 out of 10! As I pointed out to him, he was enthuastic, knowledgeable and answered my questions thoroughly. Was a very refreshing customer experience and should not go unnoticed! Yes customer experience is what it is all about in 2016 and beyond NOT customer service. Thank you
You have been very helpful and sorted any problems I had very quickly. Great communication from you all and love having my courses in my online account, makes things easier. Thank you for your support and help. Have the anxious wait now to see if my portfolio is a pass so onto the next course. Thank you for providing a great service.
Really enjoyed my study with the learning college and will recommend to anyone looking to study or become a teaching assistant. Great support from the college and tutors, thank you to all
To Kerri, Thank you so much for all the help you have given me and going out your way to find the questions I didn’t have for my course. I was panicking so much thinking I was not going to complete my course, but you gave me the guidance and support to help me achieve my qualification. A MASSIVE !! Thank you Kerri, you have gone beyond your way to help me !!! Kind regards Shereen Neil-Somers P.S I’ve received my qualification and got a new job using that. Your a great asset to your work place !!!
I originally enquired about the Level 3 course via reed.co.uk where I found many course providers offering all kinds of courses. Being completely confused I received a call from Paul at The Learning College whereby he explained all I need to know for me to make the right decision. I have been trying to become a Teaching Assistant for many years with no success. I completed some CPD courses only to find they would not help me as the school I am at now required me to have a recognised qualification. I have now completed my qualification with the college and have managed to secure a full time position in my son’s Primary School. I can’t thank The Learning College enough and will always recommend the services they provide. Thank you Sonia
Great course, Great Service, Great College. What can I say, everything about this college was great from start to finish. Thank you to everyone at the Learning College.
I am already qualified as a Teaching Assistant and having been out of education for a number of years I wanted to start a course to refresh my skills. I started this Essential Teaching Assistant course and it has given me my confidence back to work with children. Really good course with lots of knowledge to be gained. Thanks
I have learnt lot’s from completing this course with the college. Thank you to all the staff as they have been brilliant.
I really enjoyed my study time with the learning college. They supported my study throughout and the tutor support was always available and very professional. I will recommend the college to anyone looking to become a teaching assistant.
Having been worried about online learning I can honestly say it has been brilliant with The Learning College. The support is second to none and everyone is willing to help whenever you speak with the staff. The course was easy to follow and very enjoyable to study. A huge thank you to The Learning College. I have also secured my Teaching Assistant position within my school and I am chuffed. Thanks again !
I have learnt alot from this course and i have already mentioned to a few people where i studied this course. I have taken a lot from this course an like i said i will be putting it in to practise when i work in schools. I have to mention when i rang in for anything at the college Kerri Farrington such a lovely warm person always happy jolly and happy to help with whatever my query. Very very impressed outstanding service so i thank you for everything i loved studing my course with The Learning College.
Really enjoyed this course from start to finish and sad I have now completed. I have found the materials simple and the learning platform very good indeed. I will recommend the college to my colleagues and hope to complete other qualifications in the future. Thank you to my Tutor and also Kerri for all the support given
The information provided (paperwork, course content, additional info) was easy to understand. All the materials were easy to understand and complete. Would recommend to friends/ family. Great support I haven’t accepted a role related to this course in the end, but during the interviewing process I could notice the difference this course made. Potential employers were more interested me as a candidate after completing the above course which was why I chose the course in the first place.
I found the teacher very well prepared, he always made himself clear, always gave good examples and I trusted him right from the beginning. It was easy to navigate but having the gentleman as a teacher made learning even more pleasant and interesting. The tutor was friendly and really helpful. I can say the same about the assessor. I did not receive any extra materials from the college as I had bought both TA books myself. The teacher provided interesting and extremely helpful online links on materials to read and it was a genuine pleasure to learn from him. I have learned so much by doing this course. The teacher, the tutor, and assessor, all were really helpful and I am extremely grateful to everyone. I would like to insist on it one last time and say that the male teacher was crucial within the learning process. The teacher’s name is Matthew Toothill
My experience with the Learning College was really good. They gave my lots of support, if i sent something back for them to have a look at it they would get back to me quickly. The tutor was really helpful too and very encouragement to me as I had to do a little more on my course as there was not enough info and she help me out which was great. I would recommend studying with the learning college again in the near future.
I have had a great experience completing the courses with the learning college as it was my first time to study online and it all went smoothly. This was something different and I am also chuffed as I have achieved to complete 2 courses which I enjoyed and also being pregnant I thought it might not be possible but I did it :]
I think the college is very helpful should you need it and they were very quick to return my assignments with very helpful feedback. I would say that my overall experience with the college was very good and I will be using them again in the future for another course.
I have been extremely happy with both the service and professionalism of the college. I felt more comfortable knowing that the office was near to my house and that I could physically drop off my portfolio. The only thing I would say which could perhaps be a slight improvement is after I dropped my portfolio off I seemed to wait a long time to hear anything back and I contacted the Learning College to chase the matter up.
The study materials provided were very easy to use and navigate, the objectives were clearly established, the support and the materials were efficient, Very profesional company, easy to Access, good support and efficient feedback. I work as a teacher for more than 20 years and the course has been very useful for me.
INFORMATION PACKED, IN DETAIL COURSE AND WAS A PLEASURE EXPERIENCE TO LEARN AND PRESENT HOMEWORK AND RESEARCH TASKS, ALSO TO GET THEM CORRECTED BY A TUTOR WAS VERY GOOD.
