My Time at Best Training London South

Posted on 13 May 2014

Testimonial from learner to volunteer to tutor to success

After graduating from university I realised that I lacked the necessary IT skills that are crucial in today's working world. I decided that I needed not only to acquire these skills but to obtain a formal qualification in order to impress future employers. Eventually I found Best Training London South Ltd and Iím so glad I did.

When I first arrived at Best I had been unemployed for several months and was feeling very unconfident with low self esteem and poor people skills. The support and encouragement I received from my tutor and other members of staff during my sessions not only helped me to achieve my ECDL Extra qualification but also got me out of the rut I was in. I felt more confident, happier in myself and able to communicate with others more effectively.

I enjoyed my experience at Best so much so that I decided to stay on as a volunteer. Yet again the staff were all so supportive and friendly; just like during my time as a student I could see that they really cared about improving my skills and prospects. It also gave me exposure to all the hard work they put in to their students even when theyíre not teaching them.

After a few months of volunteering I was fortunate enough to be offered a full time position at Best as an IT tutor. Being responsible for the progress of 50+ students did wonders for my ability to communicate with a wide range of people and to organise and manage myself and others. It also gave me a first person view of just how outstanding a job all the members of staff do under what can at times be very demanding circumstances. I cannot stress just how much they care about providing the best learning experience for every learner. They will treat you as an individual and an adult and will do everything in their power to provide you with the type of support that you need.

I have experienced life at Best as a student, a volunteer, and a member of staff, and I can honestly say the level of training, support and encouragement I received were absolutely first class in all stages. The staff are all 100% dedicated to the success of their students and are some of the most wonderful people I have ever met. I came to Best to learn about Microsoft Office, but ended up learning so much more. I donít think I could ever thank them enough for the contribution they have made to my life.

Whether youíre a student, volunteer or new employee, I hope you enjoy your time at Best as much as I have!
