Learner Testimonials

  • I absolutely loved this course; I thought it was very worthwhile and very interesting. I gained a great deal of experience and knowledge in looking after older people. My nanny was in a Nursing Home and I witnessed first hand the work that the caregivers put in in order to take care of her, and it inspired me to work in the area. I realised upon completing this course how much is involved in caregiving for the elderly and I'm delighted to now be working as a caregiver in the same nursing home where I completed my course work experience.

  • I'm now working in hairdressing and I know that this course equipped me with the skills that I needed in order to get this job. What I think is most beneficial about this course is that within an eight-month period you have a level 5 QQI qualification which is exactly what you need to work in the area and you also get the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge during work placement as part of course.

    Hairdressing Skills Course
  • This course was more than I expected and I enjoyed learning all of the course content more than I had initially thought. The course content includes bar skills and all of the practical skills required to work in the area of food too. People probably don't think that bar men have qualifications; however it takes a good deal of skill and knowledge to work well in a bar particularly on busy nights and this course offers all of the knowledge and practical skills required in order to do the job well.

  • I really enjoyed this course, it was well put together, and the tutors were excellent. I not only learned from the course content but I also learned from the manner in which the tutors delivered the course so professionally. I work in training and this course offered me the opportunity to up-skill and learn of new training methods and ideas. It certainly has given me more confidence in my own ability and it has given me great knowledge and the ability to recognise differing student needs and therefore adapt my training methods for the varying student requirements. I would highly recommend this course to other trainers and those interested in beginning a career in the area of training.

  • I'm really enjoying this course, it is something very different. I very much enjoy the on-the-job working and learning environment at Waterford Crystal. Before starting this traineeship, I completed a Milling and Turning Course with WWETB and I think that experience has really stood to me too. I'm now entering the third year of my traineeship and I can see my long-term future working in this role.
