To Everyone at Best Training

‘I cannot thank you enough for all the help and support you have all given me over the last 12 months. From my first meeting until my last day you have all encouraged me and given me the confidence to achieve a job role in an industry that I really wanted. I know this would not have been possible if I had not attended Best Training.

Thank you also for the lovely gifts and cards that I received. I will definitely come back and see you all when I get some time off. EB

To Everyone at Best Training

‘I wanted to thank you so much for all you have done to help me.

You guys have done so much from allowing me to update my IT skills to helping with my ‘self-confidence’ and helping me to re do my CV. EVERYTHING you have done means so much.

I will keep in touch’.


To all the Team

‘I just wanted to say that it has been a pleasure to meet you all and I will miss my visits here both as a learner and a volunteer.

I really appreciate the kindness and support shown to by you all, especially when I needed assistance to fulfil my role when volunteering.
A huge thank you to each and every one of you that I have met over the past year, Best Training has been an important part of an extensive personal journey that I continue to progress on. It has been so much more than a ‘return to work’ programme’, although actually I am pleased to say that I have also now achieved my ‘long-term goal’ as soon I will be joining the NHS in a caring and support role.

I have already recommended your services to many and will continue to do so.
Hope you enjoy the cakes, keep up the great work and I wish you all every success for the future’. EM

With the support from Elaine from Best Training, who delivers our Links to Work programme, which is funded through the European Social Fund, she gained employment with a local cleaning firm and is going from strength to strength.

We are very proud of you Susan, keep up the great work.
