What Amanda thinks

One of those learners on the Talent4Care programme was Amanda Cyrus who now works for Transition Care.  She said:

“I saw an advert for a job fair at Bickerstaffe House so decided to go along and see what was available. While I was there I was told me about a course that was soon to be starting called Talent4Care, which I enrolled on. I’m so glad I did. I learnt so much in the short space of time.

“They were patient, fair, fun and they taught in a way that enabled the information to ‘stick’. I received multiple certificates and qualifications and two weeks after finishing this course I started a new job via the interviews that are arranged for you. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone”.
