Take a look at what our previous participants have said!

“It’s been an eye-opening course. And it’s not just opened my eyes, it’s opened my mind, it’s opened my heart, and it’s helped me realise my full potential.”

“It’s been brilliant.”

“Better than any other course I’ve done. I’d recommend it to anyone because they actually care about people.”

“Excellent course, really enjoyed it! Helped to know there were others out there in the same situation. I’ve left the course feeling lot more positive about my job search and with a clear plan going forward.”

“I loved the positivity it brought. It’s made me realise I shouldn’t doubt myself. I know to keep pushing forward now.”

““I feel like the fire inside me is burning again and I’m more ready than before to get out and look for work. I feel that someone took time on me and gave me a chance to prove myself”

“I came away feeling very positive, motivated and a lot more confident in ‘me’. The time we spent discussing CV’s was wonderful and inspired me to make the most of what I have to offer. I hadn’t had that kind of help before. That, along with other useful tips, gave me back the confidence I had lost the past six months.”

“There’s nothing I could fault regarding the course. I really loved my one-to-one with Eddie. He was so inspirational and gave me so much hope for the future, and made me feel that anything is possible. Overall, a really positive experience, and would recommend the course to anyone struggling to find work and struggling with a lack of direction!”
