I would like to thank Kelly and Margo for all of their help during my management SVQ level 7. The one-to-one visits and phone calls really helped throughout the process. Thanks again Des’

I started my journey with Training Matters in January 2019. Margo who recruited me to the course has been warm, inviting and encouraging. Her colleague Kelly Court who is my personal advisor, has been a great resource for my development through my units. She is approachable, engaging, knowledgeable and willing to help me reach my goal. Kelly lets me set my own schedule for meeting my outcomes and is flexible about our catchups, yet prompt in giving feedback and helpful tips. Kelly is relatively new to Training Matters, however you are unaware in your interactions as she is exceptionally knowledgeable and familiar with the process, systems and expectations for the course. I could not ask for a better support system in my Training Matters journey.

I completed by SVQ Level 4 Management qualification during my time at Glasgow Science Centre. Margo and her team were always on hand to provide help and guidance and my regular 121s with Margo and Audrey always inspired and motivated me to crack onto the next stage - thank you ladies, couldn’t have done it without you! As well as enhancing my role at GSC, my qualification has been of significant benefit in terms of my career progression, in addition to providing a real sense of personal achievement. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Training Matters to other organisations who are considering training for their employees.

“Thank you for the support. Finishing my SVQ has allowed me to gain a more in depth understanding of the impact I can and should have on the overall organisation and not just my area of expertise. Learning by stepping out of my comfort zone is what I take away most from the experience.

After I finished my qualification last year (SVQ3 Management) I got promoted at work and I am proud to say that I am now the nursery depute. My hard work has paid off. It’s an amazing journey for me. Thank you so much Training Matters, especially to Audrey and Anne. I agree Training Matters are true market leaders in on line learning. I am presently pursuing my SVQ4 Management and I am proud to say that I am nearly there. Being organised and having a lot of determination are the keys for success...So don’t give up, if I can do it, you can do it too...Come on what are you waiting for!

The whole process was very manageable and well supported throughout. I knew there was always someone I could reach out to if I had any questions or became stuck. I found real benefit from the course and have built a lot of evidence which I will be able to use going forward to make me a better Manager.

A huge thank you to everyone at Training Matters, without you I don’t think I would have ever have thought about starting the SVQ in Management, let alone complete it. Through the training I have grown in confidence and have put some of my new skills to good use already!!! At the beginning I raced through the units and we hit peak production the time my pace reduced somewhat, a huge thanks again for getting my motivation back and encouraging me to complete the course. I am now seriously thinking about progressing further and continuing on to do Level 4.

Can’t thank you enough for your encouragement and support. I don’t believe I would have received the level of support elsewhere. I would definitely recommend this route and Training Matters to anyone considering this qualification especially if they work in the construction industry.

Everything about Training Matters was excellent. The online application was user friendly and the flexibility and support from Margo, Roberta and Anne was excellent. Nothing was too much bother and they made me feel at ease when I thought things were getting a bit tight for time and took the time to step through everything with me. Even the 7am calls were brilliant and helped me greatly on a 1-2-1 basis. Superb service.

I completed this course in March and I am very happy with the quality of the course. I was surprised by the commitment and level of help Training Matters provided. The online portal was intuitive and the material was well presented and complete, so there was no need for additional material. And if I really needed some assistance, then the staff from Training Matters was only a click or a phone call away. I feel my career has really taken off since taking this course and can only recommend it.

At the start of working on my supply chain management SVQ i thought i was going to struggle to apply my job to meet the units/standards but the guidance and support from the Training Matters team was excellent and would advise anyone if they had the opportunity to work for an SVQ with Training Matters that they would not regret it! It was a pleasure!
