“I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and been given every level of support and encouragement needed by my Skills Tutor, Zac who is a very friendly, polite and motivational”
I have learnt a lot in during my Business Administration Apprenticeship and I will take this knowledge with me to further better myself in my career.
The course lessons were very well structured and explained by my Skills Tutor (Zac) who supported me so much in passing my Mathematics exam on the first attempt. His professionalism and passion for the work he carries out is outstanding and with his guidance, I was able to pass the course with little worry. I’d highly recommend the course to anyone who wishes to pursue a career within an administrative/office environment and if you are looking for a course which is educational, fun and useful, then look no further than Eden.

“I think Sandra is a fantastic teacher and the leadership course is great for aspiring managers as well as a confidence booster to any manager struggling and needing to upskill in their current role”.
I think Sandra (Skills Tutor) did a fantastic job in guiding me through the Team Leader Supervisor course. The past year has flown by and in having Sandra’s support, it’s given me the confidence to become a great leader back in the workplace. I really enjoyed the one to one sessions and found the course was delivered at a good pace. I would highly recommend this to anyone to upskill or re-train.

I can’t wait to continue working as a childcare level 3 practitioner. I can’t thank Sam enough for everything she has done over the last 18 months to get me where I am. Sam really took the time to make sure that I understood every unit before sending me another, which has made me so much more confident now. Thank you so much Sam!

“Ashley at Eden Training Solutions has been Amazing”
Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic I’ve been working full time. As I’d been supporting key worker children, I hadn’t been furloughed, and so, I was very busy during the day. Ashley (Skills Tutor) has been brilliant throughout this time, making sure we still had regular meetings, even if that meant later at night. She went above and beyond to help me to get where I am now. Thank you Ashley – you’ve been wonderful!
“I just wanted to say thank you to Skills Tutor (Ashley) for delivering such fantastic training sessions”
Your extreme patience is much appreciated as I really do like to ask lots of questions and talk things through thoroughly. I also appreciate your support when working through the assignment tasks; it’s really helpful to have someone 1-1 to bounce off ideas and get support. I really enjoy the sessions which are very clear, well delivered, and fun.

“Our Apprentices have been fully supported by their Skills Tutor (Siobhan) during the COVID-19 lockdown which has kept them really engaged”
I first contacted Eden Training Solutions in Sept-18, having previously contacted a few other companies offering apprentice vacancy matching services. We chose Eden because their responsiveness was both swift and professional, explaining very clearly the services they offered, including the support provided for advertising, screening and shortlisting vacancies as well as advice for the interview process. The package offered to apprentices was very thorough and could be tailored individually to meet the learners needs.
We now have three employed apprentices thanks to the help of Eden. They have all been fully supported by their Skills Tutor (Siobhan), who goes above and beyond to make sure they understand their units and is always available if they need help. Siobhan ensures that I’m also kept fully up to date with their progress, delivering remote training with all apprentice during the COVID-19 lockdown periods to keep them engaged.

“Our Skills Tutor, Jessica is absolutely incredible”
