  • I really enjoyed my course; it was something completely different to anything I had done before, and for me the course was excellently presented. My background is in construction; I'm a quantity surveyor by profession so this entirely new content to me. I would very much recommend this course to others, I felt the course was adapted and delivered excellently for the various levels in our group.

  • This course offered a tremendous amount of information and all of the skills required to work in a healthcare role. All of the modules taught me the information I need, I learned a lot and I realise how valuable this course is in-particular given the ageing population of Ireland the huge demand that there is for qualified caregivers. I would recommend this course to others who want to work in this area; it also offers an excellent opportunity to add further modules in order to gain qualifications in order to work with those with a disability, mental health or nutrition.

  • 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 would really recommend this course to anyone interested in working in education and caring for children. I very much enjoyed the fact that the work experience offered us a first-hand opportunity for on-the-job learning.

  • 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 love this course. The tutors on this course were the most helpful tutors I have ever encountered. I would very much recommend a WWETB course to others. I found the course content very interesting, it was very detailed content for working in childcare and child protection. All of the assignments were outlined very clearly. I have moved on to study level six in Childcare and I look forward to working in the area full-time upon achieving my qualifications.

  • I very much enjoyed this course, it offered on-site training and all of the practical skills and qualifications required to go and work in the area of food and beverage full-time. I now work in food and beverage and I would probably not have gotten this position without achieving my qualifications.

  • 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 enjoy this course very much; we completed invoices, sales, telephone reception and covered the total range of office and reception skills. It very much equipped me with all of the skills that I would need in order to work in the role successfully. I have already recommended this course to others who would like to work in this area.

  • I loved this course; it is a pity that it's finished. I enjoyed everything about it; the help and the level of professionalism on this course were to the highest degree. Completing this course would enable anyone to bring a car to a completely restored level. I never worked in this area before but I am now going to work towards opening my own business in car restoration.

  • 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.

  • 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.
