Karl

I received a lot of support from North Lincolnshire Adult Education. Regarding my own mental health, doing these courses has given me a purpose. I’m now far more confident with the computer after doing the digital courses and the Stress Awareness course has helped with my confidence. It has helped me to volunteer at a local men’s mental health group. View our Personal Development & Wellbeing Courses.

All the digital skills and content that I have learned have greatly improved my ability to complete everyday chores on my own and with full confidence.
Important lesson I have learned is to keep calm; there is no need to rush tasks. Taranam did a digital skills course. View our Technology and Digital Skills Courses.

I came to Adult Education to learn better reading and spelling skills to enable me to help my grandson who is only 7 years of age. So, I’m now able to help him with his learning as well.
It’s so easy the way I’m taught here compared to when I was at school. I can retain the information.
I learnt how to produce a CV and received help from the Careers Advisor. She helped me realise how many skills I already had from previous work. I applied for a job driving a minibus, bringing pupils to Study United at Glanford Park and have been offered the job which I’m looking forward to starting. Nigel did an English Course.

I feel I have not only gained IT skills but also had a wonderful opportunity to make new friends on the course, I have set up a WhatsApp group with three other course members; we meet up for coffee and stay connected on a regular basis. I am enjoying it very much and looking forward to learning more IT skills to help me gain skills and a qualification to gain employment. Aleya did a digital skills course.

The ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) courses helped me when ordering my medication by phone to be able to pronounce words. The tutors are amazing and so helpful. View our ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Courses.

Debbie

The passion of the tutors who led the course and their ability to further bring out the passion inside me enabled me to seek an alternative career with children where I would be able to use my new knowledge, experience of additional needs and years of experience as SENCO. I was told about a Foundation Degree in Supporting Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Well-being, and I jumped at the chance to enrol and started it at university.

It’s really surprised me, as I was nervous to do it but now I feel very confident. Never think you can’t come back into Education. It’s there for everyone. Paul did a digital skills course. View our Technology and Digital Skills Courses.

Karolina

I love working with children. I started my career in school as a Polish Learning Mentor and after a few months I decided to do a Teaching Assistant course with AECL. Now, I can say that it was the best choice in my life! My tutors were always very helpful, and we could contact each other by phone calls, emails or Google Classroom chat. The main benefit of the course is that I have got a job as a Teaching Assistant in a school! I could not have got this job without attending this course, so I would highly recommend the TA course!

I’ve worked in early years for 25 years and got so much from doing the Level 2 Understanding Mental Health in Early Years course. The work I have done with the children since passing the course has been of great benefit to them. View our Working With and Understanding Children Courses.

Adult Education and Community Learning changed my life for the better. Amazing people work there. ESOL classes helped me at work to be able to communicate with people, I made new friends and I feel safer and happier. View our ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Courses.

I have found it brilliant. It’s been hard work but you have to work hard to achieve. My partner wrote a letter and I could tell her where she had made mistakes and edit it with her. I’ve now got a job at Go Outdoors. It’s nice to engage with the public and people asking questions. View our English and Maths Courses.

The course was really good and the tutor provided great support. I think the Fast Track English is brilliant and it enables you to complete a lot quicker.

I really enjoyed the course. I also received great tips and advice for applying for jobs and attending interviews from the service during my time on the course.

It’s a hard thing going back into education but the tutors here are great and supportive. Time was of the essence for me so finding the Fast-Track English was great news. It’s something I should have done a long time ago. Achieving maths and English will really help me in the future. View our English and Maths Courses.
