Tracy Phillips | Area Manager | Primetime Nursery

As a developing SME in the childcare sector I have felt totally supported and nurtured as an employer who has actively engaged in Workforce Development with Aspiration Training since 2010 through apprenticeship programmes and Job Growth Wales scheme. The personal touch delivered by the team during sign up, in depth monitoring and completion reviews have exceeded my expectations and I would recommend them without hesitation. As a result of their dedication to both our learners and organisation we have successfully employed strong teams of motivated individuals who are committed to continuous development.

Lisa Thomas | CEO Camau Cyntaf I Ddysgu - 1st Steps to Learning

I have been a student with Aspiration Training for the last year, studying my level 5 in Childcare and management. I must admit, being a mum and running a business, going back to further education did scare me a little bit as I was out of practice and wasn't sure if I could commit to it. The staff at Aspiration Training were amazing, they initially came out to have a chat with me and show me what they could offer. I realised that the course would be very beneficial to my current job role and agreed to enrol in the course. I instantly clicked with my new trainer and realised that I wouldn't be on my own and had plenty of support if needed by Aspiration Training. I was made very aware of the amount of work I needed to put in but also it was at my own pace. I was given realistic time scales in preparing written work and didn't feel the work load too much between working life and other activities. I am now nearly at the end of my course and I couldn't be anymore thankful to both Emma and Diane Feltham from the Aspiration team for helping me through this year. The Aspiration team have always been courteous, friendly and a great help either on the phone or via e-mail or through a visit to the nursery. Many Thanks to all who has helped me. It is greatly appreciated.

Claire Thomas | Manager at Teifi Tots Nursery

Aspiration training have been working with Kaleidoscope childcare LTD for the last 3 years. Over this time they have been an important part of our goal to have a developing and well trained work force. Aspiration training have provided us with apprentices who are reliable and have a genuine passion to work with children. Our apprentices have mostly gone on to stay with us at the end of their apprenticeship due in part to their mentoring from Jackie Margetts who is an inspirational mentor. She helps apprentices of all abilities to have the confidence to believe in their own development and is always available to talk to. The team that we liaise with include Rachel Bent, Jackie Margetts and Alan Lovett who have all been professionals and supportive in their work to bot the apprentices and the nursery. We would recommend Aspiration training to other early years settings as they deliver every time. We hope to continue to work with Aspiration Training for many years to come.

Damon Perks | Officer in charge | Kaleidoscope Childcare Ltd

I use Aspiration Training for the delivery of Health and Social Care QCF qualifications and Hospitality qualifications. The manner of the signing up Tutors and assessors are second to none. They always deliver the training with a professional attitude and care about the way they work with their learners. The qualifications are carried out in a time scale to meet the deadlines of delivery but each assessor/tutor ensures to take all concerns the learner may have into consideration to provide a quality support system. As Manager of Plasygarn Residential Home within the Hafod Care group I am proud to say that my staff have gained a qualification with Aspiration training and look forward to progressing new staff to meet their expectations.

June Clark | Manager Hafod Care Association

Sneakers Childcare have been using Aspirations Training for many years to provide Early Years and Childcare NVQs for our staff team. Recently we decided we wished to offer an apprenticeship within our two nurseries. I contacted Lisa Venables at Aspirations to see if they could help us. From the outset the communication and service provided by Lisa has been first class. Lisa listened carefully to the type of candidate we required and when advertising the apprenticeship vacancy followed our requirements exactly. She kept me fully informed of the candidates she was meeting, emailing across CVs of those she felt would be suitable. We have recently taken on our first apprentice and the experience that we have had with Aspirations has been so positive that we are now in the process of recruiting a further two apprentices.

Karyn Maddison | Manager of Little Sneakers Nursery

I am currently the Care Services area manager and have had direct contact with Aspiration Training on a weekly basis for over 10 years. I have found their service to be extremely well run and responsive to the needs of both my care management staff and the staff on the ground they provide a service for. The clear lines of communication allow for information to be passed back and forth easily. The assessors and tutors are extremely helpful and passionate about their job roles; this attitude is then passed on to the care staff which in turn delivers an excellent service. I have found the whole team at Aspiration Training professional. Due to the close working relationship Sevcacare has with Aspiration Training we are also able to monitor the development of the workforce giving us great opportunity to promote from within further developing the workforce once they have achieve the necessary qualification. At present we have 90% of the workforce who have achieved their level 2 and 37% working towards their level 2 and above. Moving forward I believe these number can only improve and this is testament to the hard work and commitment shown by Aspiration Training and the whole team. Aspiration Training has become a very important part of the extended Sevacare family and I would to personally thank them for their help and support. Hope this continues long into the future.

Nicola Jayne | Care Services Area Manager Sevacare

As an established domiciliary care provider in South East Wales, we have regularly engaged with Aspiration Training. My employees are always made to feel at ease, by Business Development Manager Alyson Dale and her Team, who spend valuable time reassuring the more nervous students of what to expect, explaining the full range of support available. I have seen my employee’s blossom into confident individuals, who now have the underpinning knowledge to deliver exceptional standards of support to vulnerable adults in the community. I too completed my qualification with Aspiration, something I could not have done with any other training provider....I am confident that Aspiration will continue to meet the needs of ISS healthcare as we continue to develop our business, through the training and development of exceptional staff. Aspiration training maintain a personalised family feel to the way they conduct business.

Nicola Tucker | Regional Manager City and County Healthcare Group

I have been very happy with the service Aspiration Training Ltd has provided my practices (Newport Road Dental Clinic). The service has been very user friendly and easy to access for a small busy business like us.

Dr S Yeganeh | Newport Road Dental Clinic

Aspiration Training has trained several of my employees and we are always happy with the great quality we receive.

Xenis Ioannides | Wilson Road Dental Surgery Cardiff

It makes my life considerably easier knowing that I can rely on Aspiration Training’s Wendy Franklin & Clare Pagett to deliver a high standard of professionalism and training to our staff. I believe successful candidates do not depend on the size of the training company, but on the people who oversee the trainees – which you are proving to me daily. Their engagement and adaptability allows any one of my staff members to learn and gain knowledge from subjects they are qualifying in. For this I would like to say a massive thank you!

Gemma Lawrence | Branch Manager Nationwide Care Services Ltd
