What our students say about our tutors
  • Being a techno-phobe it was a very useful course. I have learned a vast amount of new skills which no doubt will create further opportunities and help to explain how my work is carried out.

  • Adrian is always extremely patient and supportive with all our members of staff that are under taking their diplomas. Adrian spends a lot of time with my staff within the home and on the phone to support them when they are stuck. Adrian is an absolute pleasure to work with.

  • Within my training with Heathercroft Training Academy I have been able to achieve my diploma in childcare. Whilst completing my training through this period I was supported by the use of internet conversation and monthly reviews. This enabled me to accomplish my work in a timely manner, achieve the goals and tasks that I set myself.

  • I have thoroughly enjoyed my training with Heathercroft and would highly recommend them. They have supported me throughout the course with clear, step-by-step guidance and sage advice, so that, even as a full-time working mum I’ve been able to successfully complete the course, which gives me a great sense of achievement and a new qualification. Thank you Heathercroft.
