After over 30 years of marketing experience and countless training courses, I finally had the opportunity to formally learn how to educate and train through The Education and Training Academy. It has been an invaluable experience, giving me the tools and perspective needed to organise learning in a manner that is... structured and measurable.

Having some previous teaching experience, but lacking the qualification I needed to start training formally accredited courses, I completed the Level 3 Award in Education and Training with Matt and the Education and Training Academy.From the beginning, the expectations needed to complete the qualification were laid out... brilliantly in the academy's resources, which really made the process of completing the portfolio as clear as possible. The taught days of the course were a really enjoyable experience, students came from a range of backgrounds and the trainer ensured everyone felt involved and able to share their experiences. Many of the learning methods discussed on the course were clearly demonstrated and we had some great group discussions which left me reflecting on new ways of improving my own teaching approaches. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to complete their Level 3 more
